QB Blake Rankin to Rutgers


Bloomsburg, PA quarterback Blake Rankin verbally committed to Rutgers yesterday at the team's spring game according to the recruiting sites. Rankin, listed at 6'4 and 195 lbs, completed 49% of his passes last fall for over 1,600 yards and 17 TDs. What's really notable for a QB of his size is that he also ran for 977 yards and 16 TDs. It looks like the Northeast is once again thin on quarterbacks this year after you get past Devin Fuller and Chad Kelly. Rutgers studied the other guys out there, decided they liked Rankin the best, and started aggressively recruiting him while other programs were still in evaluation mode. RU is probably done with QBs for this cycle unless Fuller has interest.
