The big news over the weekend was from the Badger Sports 7 on 7 event, which brought a lot of top 2012 prospects to the Rutgers campus. There are a lot of summaries out there which are too extensive for selective quoting, but are rather extensive and worth reading in their entirety. There's two from State of Rutgers, and three from (good Wayne Morgan note there) 24/7 Sports.

Old Tappan QB Devin Fuller will visit PSU next. Fuller and Bosco WR Leonte Carroo received invites to the next Army AA game. Speaking of Carroo, ND offered him.

DePaul S Davon Jacobs went to a RU basketball game last weekend.

UVA offered Franklin ATH Kye Morgan.

Could Holy Spirit LB Dan Mastromatteo decide early?

If Mastromatteo is intent on making an early decision that could favor the Scarlet Knights. While he did not say that Rutgers is his favorite, he seems very flattered by their interest.

"As of right now Rutgers is showing the most interest," he said when asked which schools are sticking out.

The St. Joe's (Hammonton) coach has a lot of explaining to do regarding DL/LB Kaiwan Lewis.

"Hopefully, he will go south to play."

SPP S D.J. Singleton is visiting MD's Junior Day.

Bosco LB Mike Strizak isn't saying anything.

ND offered PA OL J.J. Denman at their Junior Day. PA LB Nyeem Wartman should visit RU at some point. Alabama offered PA TE Colin Thompson.

MD DE Brent Wilkerson is blowing up. MD LB Devon Porchia claims a RU offer. MD DT Mike Madaras added a VT offer.

RU reportedly offered FL ATH Tre Dudley-Giles.

Al Golden should probably stick to recruiting the Miami area.

Believe it or not, South Carolina can't actually sign 30+ players in a recruiting class. Doing that has consequences, like pulling a ship the day before NLOI day from a disadvantaged youth. Given that every SEC school outside of Florida, Georgia, and Vanderbilt oversigns, the other nine ought to be dragged through the mud at every possible opportunity. Any players considering the SEC need to wake up. These guys have no scruples whatsoever.

Sometimes, however, the math simply goes awry. This year, Spurrier said that so many recruits chose South Carolina that they wound up with two more players than they could take under conference rules. The team told Jordan Montgomery, a linebacker from Groveland, Fla. and Lorenzo Mauldin, a defensive end from Atlanta, that there wasn't room for them in this year's class.

Montgomery's high school coach, Walter Banks, said, "I told them this was foul. I didn't have a clue until 18 hours before signing day, and if they say anything else, they're lying."
