Rutgers Football Recruiting: Scarlet-White Game Recruiting Follow-Up

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Some recruiting notes and updates from Rutgers spring game

As reported Friday, a slew of prospects in whom Rutgers is very interested were on campus Saturday for the Spring Game. Here's a rundown of the happenings and recruit impressions.

Did Anyone Commit?

No.  At least not as of noon Sunday. After much speculation that Dontae Strickland might pull the trigger this weekend, Todderick Hunt is reporting the South Brunswick RB may wait until September 14 (his mother's birthday) to commit. That date should ring a bell for Scarlet Knight fans -- it is the day after the Penn State game, when, if there is a just and fair God in heaven interested in aiding the long-suffering on Earth, we will be reveling in glorious victory over our hated rivals from the West. Pull that off under the lights in front of a rocking house on national TV and Strickland might not be the only one committing that day.

Did Rutgers Offer Anyone New?

Only one prospect appears to have received a Rutgers offer. 3* Towson, Maryland Wide Receiver Lawrence Cager picked up a Knight tender after spending a long visit with WR coach Ben McDaniels and HC Kyle Flood. He was not able to meet with Offensive Coordinator Ralph Friedgen, because Friedgen missed the Spring Game for a minor medical reason (for more information on Friedgen's condition, and lame attempts at humor at the Fridge's expense, Politi has that covered).

Cager is a long, smooth WR of the type that has thrived at RU in recent years. At 6'5" 200 lbs., he is reminiscent of Brandon Coleman or Kenny Britt, able to use his size to create separation. He does not seem to have game-changing speed, but he does not have to be Janarion Grant to be effective. His hudl highlights also show he is a proficient run-blocker, not always a high priority for talented high school wideouts.

Cager has offers from Indiana, Wake Forest, Oregon State, Old Dominion and Bowling Green. He is looking like a player about to blow up after an injury caused him to miss games last season.
