Rutgers football recruiting update for the week of 6/28

Committed Players

Hooray, PA OL Chris Muller is a Scarlet Knight. For those worried about PSU, they whiffed on Blake Bars (who was rationalized as PSU lean after the Muller commit.) Then they took a couple DL verbals, and the popular thinking is that a few of their current DL commits (like Brian Gaia) will move to OL now.

Uncommitted Players

Rutgers held its football camp over the past few days, and Matt Sugam from the New Brunswick Patch has the pictures from the 7-on-7 tournament..

Could Don Bosco DT Darius Hamilton, son of former Giants stalwart Keith Hamilton, stay home to play his college ball at Rutgers? Hamilton will if Jeff Hafley has any say in the matter.

With Muller in the fold, now Scarlet eyes turn to Long Branch's Ryan Brodie.

DC OL Derrick Nelson is another guy the staff is looking at.

MD DE Charles Tapper doesn't seem interested in RU.

NJ DE/LB Kaiwan Lewis is interested in Florida.

FL ATH Trey Dudley-Giles returned from mono.

Isn't social media fun? Supposedly a Michigan State fan is pretending to be a Michigan fan on Twitter, for the purpose of harassing UM recruits enough that they will rescind their verbal commitments.

NJ OL Jim Cashman committed to BC. DC ATH Albert Reid and MD WR Deontay McManus committed to WVU. FL DB Chris Bivins committed to WVU, so some other Big East teams are starting to load up in recruiting too. NJ DT Austin Johnson came out of nowhere to commit to PSU last week. He claims an offer, and there's really no way to know for sure either way. PA TE Jack Schwaba and OL Adam DiPietro committed to Northwestern. NC K Paul Griggs committed to Purdue. OH K Ross Martin committed to Duke.
