Derrick Nelson verbally commits to Rutgers


After years of recruiting misfires up front, the Rutgers football program is a Ryan Brodie away from landing its dream 2012 offensive line class. The Scarlet Knights always seem to sign one player out of D.C./MD/VA every year, and that quota has been met with Archbishop Carroll guard Derrick Nelson. So much for waiting. RU fans have to be elated to see another good linemen ready to wear Scarlet. It took a while, but expect last year's team weakness to develop again into a strength over the coming years now that Rutgers is successfully recruiting highly-recruited linemen again.
