Purdue wrestling head coach Tony Ersland and his staff kick off Season 4 of the Always Aggressive Podcast this week, recapping the summer, introducing some new Boilermakers and taking a look at the 2022-23 non-conference schedule.
The Boilermakers spent a good chunk of the summer on campus, getting in some training cycles around the U20 and U23 U.S. World Team Trials, hosting camps and settling the team newcomers in West Lafayette. Five of the program's seven first years were able to start their college experience and get a feel for what the team culture is like.
Announced a couple weeks ago, the Boilermakers 2022-23 non-conference schedule offers several opportunities to see Purdue compete at home, and introduced a few new tournaments to the schedule. Ersland is excited at the prospect of introducing his young team to the home fans and give them a chance to see the team a few times before heading out on to the road for conference action.
Ersland and his staff also continue to prepare for on-campus recruiting season, set to welcome several of the nation's finest high school standouts for official visits this fall. Things get going next week in conjunction with Purdue Football's season opener against Penn State, set for 8 pm on Thursday, September 1 at Ross-Ade Stadium.
