There has been a lot of good content lately on State of Rutgers; better read all you that can before the paywall goes up. As to not steal their thunder, I'll just link to a couple of new articles, including one on Casey Turner (apparently a new RB offer out of FL, still waiting for additional confirmation), Terrell Chestnut, Charles Davis, Savon Huggins, and VA S Ronnie Van Dyke (new offer) from the class of 2011, Brian Robinson, Mustafa Greene, and an enlightening article on verbal commit Marcus Thompson.
Jordan Thomas is Mr. Clutch. I don't see Chas Dodd overtaking Tom Savage, even though he is putting up big numbers in Byrnes's spread offense. Only 124 yards on the week for Dodd? What a bust. Bad game for J.T. Tartacoff as Westfield blew out Montgomery.
Not much info here, but the Charlotte Observer pegs Mustafa Greene to the Scarlet Knights.
Florida corner Johnnie Simon claims to have received a verbal offer from Rutgers (after mostly focusing on MAC schools up to this point), with a written one still on the way.
"Coach (Brian) Jenkins called me and asked me how I’d like playing cornerback, because they need corners. I told him I’d rather play safety, but I can learn how to play corner too. He said they were sending one (offer) in the mail."
CB Jabari Price is open, and will take his visits (video). The Scout database is now showing an offer out to 2011 Florida DE B.J. Dubose. Another new 2011 offer is RB Mike Blakely. It's a longshot, but maybe keep an eye on LB Christian Jones. ATH Tarean Austin favors USF.
In a sad story, a 2011 prospect from Staten Island who was reportedly starting to receive some interest from Rutgers died in a car accident last week.
With a whole lotta commits (and decommits), now Stanford is in the spotlight for its recruiting class this year.
FL RB Gio Bernard committed to Notre Dame. MD OL Robbie Havenstein committed to Wisconsin. For anyone wondering, Malcolm Yowk is off to Delaware, and did not have a commitable offer from Rutgers (or Stanford, for that matter).
Watchlist: Bill Belton, Cole Farrand, Dan Foesel, Antoine Pozniak, Doug Rigg (2), Nate Smith, and Dustin Thomas.
