Check out how the Scarlet Knights fared and how they compare to future opponents in the B1G.

Bound Brook wrestler Andrew Campolattano to Ohio State

+

The writing's been on the wall for a while now, with the only surprise that (one time Rutgers football commit) Campolattano picked Ohio State over Nebraska. This stings considering that the Rutgers wrestling program is coming off a great season, and a blue chip recruit could have put them over the top, but some players just want to get away from home. It's too bad, oh well. Time to focus on the recruits who want to wrestle for Rutgers, and start hyping up Ashnault's younger brother. At the rate New Jersey wrestlers have transferred back home to the waiting arms of Scott Goodale, who knows, maybe this setback is merely the beginning.

Andrew Campolattano chooses wrestling

It was hard to get a grasp on Campo's full football potential with him having to keep his weight down for wrestling, but he showed solid production last fall, and the staff saw fit to give him one of the earliest offers in this year's class. On the other hand, he's undoubtedly an elite wrestling prospect, which raises the possibility of two Rutgers coaches in Greg Schiano and Scott Goodale both jockeying for the Bound Brook athlete (it would not be possible to play both sports due to weight restrictions). With Rutgers wrestling in the top ten now, the program could be a legit national championship contender were they to sign Campolattano and '13 prospect Anthony Ashnault out of South Plainfield. Is that worth football losing possibly the next Steve Beauharnais? Now the football staff could be left scrambling for a linebacker, which explains the Ashton Broyld and Ejuan Price offers. Quinton Alston probably isn't an option given his Iowa commitment, and not being a good fit in Schiano's defense. If the staff does go after another LB, my untargeted guess is that it'd be another speedy safety hybrid type out of Florida. Update: how does a program "turn out to be different"?

Penn State's endless fountain of money

Owing to Sean Keeley's take on this subject, I felt obligated to go back and flesh out my thoughts here. Penn State lured away Cornell's lacrosse coach last week for, presumably, a major bump in...
