Rutgers football recruiting update for the week of 8/3

Uncommitted Players

Rutgers fans are eagerly awaiting NJ WR Leonte Carroo's decision on August 6th. Just try not to freak about his weekend tweets about Penn State (see below.)

Recruits are inevitably starting to bail on North Carolina, with NJ LB Dan Mastromatteo decommitting. Rutgers originally finished second for Mastro, just as it did for former PSU DT commit Jamil Pollard, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything for the South Jersey duo with so few free scholarships this year.

NJ ATH Devin Fuller isn't tipping his cap. For the love of Paul Robeson, don't contact recruits on Facebook or Twitter.

'13 NJ DE Garrett Sickels is taking early unofficial visits.

There's unfortunate news about NJ DB Kye Morgan, who was a victim of this year's scholarship crunch. Wonder if RU gets back involved later with him or other prospects they've pulled back from, and whether these guys want to stay home enough to wait.

Morgan, ranked the No. 51 running back in the nation, had been considering Rutgers but he and the Scarlet Knights have since parted ways and started looking in different directions.

Who's MD WR Ian Thomas looking at? VA DT Korren Kirven is thinking factory.

Can Delaware please make up their mind about whether Red Lion is allowed to recruit high school prospects or not?

MD LB Sam Lebbie committed to WVUcausing a fair bit of drama for Randy Edsall and Maryland in the process. All the stereotypes about Edsall are right, but it's hard to blame him here given Lebbie's grade issues. Speaking of controversial recruitments, NJ DL/LB Kaiwan Lewis committed to South Carolina and the quickly-reinstated G.A. Mangus. FL QB Bennie Coney committed to Cincy. FL QB Tyler Cameron committed to USF.
