    I certainly don't have any inside information. But I'd be surprised if Haines transferred. I suspect he has a lot of confidence in himself and sees Nevills as having to prove himself. I don't think Haines will back off from the challenge. That said, I agree with others in finding this a bit puzzling as there are other weights that PSU needs help in down the line and pulling in 2 of the top 5 pfp wrestlers at the same weight is interesting. I suspect that Nevills didn't need a lot of scholly money (as others have suggested). I can't see Cael handing out major scholly money to 2 Hwt prospects, even as good as both of them are.

    Wooops!

    I guess it would be better for PSU fans if Nevills has a great career and Haines has a pretty good one.

    In all honesty, i hope they both have phenominal careers. Haines has grown up a Penn State wrestling fan and and then to have Cael Sanderson take over to sweeten the deal was a dream for this kid...only to have it ripped away. I feel awful for the young man and I wish him nothing but the best. I really hope he heads to OK St, Coach Smith will take great care of him there.

    If he goes to Iowa I'll hate every second of rooting for him (ala Mike Evans)
