Kerzman, who won his second title earlier in March, was selected as the state's top 130-pounder to compete against a team of All Stars from western Pennsylvania.
Kerzman lost a 17-8 major decision to Ron Tarquinio (150-19) of West Allegheny, who won a state title in Pennsylvania and finished in the top three four times.
The Western Pennsylvania All Stars edged Minnesota 22-21.
Minnesota also had two wrestlers on the USA team: Bloomington Kennedy's Marcus LeVesseur and Frazee's Matt Nagel. LeVesseur won, and Nagel lost decisions, as the USA team defeated a team of Pennsylvania All Stars 31-19.
The USA team featured three recruits for the University of Minnesota: LeVesseur, Nagle, and Cory Cooperman of New Jersey.
