If nothing else, Skai Moore's verbal commitment to Rutgers University signifies a new era in bad sports naming puns.
As down as some people may be on some of the sleepers in this year's class, it's truly impossible to find any fault with Moore, a genuine blue chip prospect. He's been a Rutgers lean for a while, but some people close to Moore were apoplectic that he was not receiving more interest from traditional powers, until Wisconsin stepped in lately. Ohio State had interest too, but ultimately wouldn't take his verbal with all the blue chippers they're in the mix for.
Their loss is our gain. This is probably the first commitment that can be directly tied to the Big Ten move. This is the kid of player we've always fallen just short for, and now we're getting them.
So, what's next? It'll be interesting to see whether there's still room for Wisconsin LB commit D.J. Singleton. Rutgers of course is still reportedly going after a few other players currently committed to other schools on both sides of the ball.
