RFootball Recruiting On A Roll

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Two new additions to Kyle Flood's 2014 class

Kyle Flood is quickly tempering fears that the level of recruiting on the banks is tapering off with Schiano down in Tampa. Kiy Hester, the safety from DePaul Catholic, tweeted earlier today that he has given his solid verbal to the Scarlet Knights. New defensive coordinator Dave Cohen was apparently a key cog in the recruitment of hester:

Hester is a consensus four-star recruit in the ESPN 300 and Rivals 250. His commitment wasn't the only good news of the day however, as Ramapo DE Jimmy Hogan announced his intentions to play for RU only hours later. Hogan is a three-star prospect on ESPN and Rivals.

While this class is far from the best that Rutgers has ever seen, it should silence the critics out there who think Flood is a big downgrade in terms of recruiting. Jabril Peppers would have been a really tough get and it's tough to say if even Schiano could have closed on the No. 2 prospect in the nation. So far, the 2014 class has a solid QB and outstanding players at the WR and DB position.

Not to mention, signing day isn't until February, and that gives Flood plenty of time to close on uncommitted prospects.
