Today, Rutgers offered Cornell sophomore guard Nolan Cressler, according to Corey Evans. The 6'4" sharpshooter is transferring, and has interest from Pittsburgh and Notre Dame, along with an offer from Vanderbilt.
Would be shocked if they could beat out Notre Dame, Pitt and Vandy. RT @coreyevans_10 Rutgers has offered Cornell transfer Nolan Cressler— Cornell_BB_Blog (@Cornell_BB_Blog) April 3, 2014
Cressler can light it up shooting 41% overall and 36% from 3. He played over 36 minutes per game last year. If he commits to Rutgers, he'd likely have to sit a year. He scored 23 points against Syracuse in the first game of the season this year. Cressler is the first player to land a Rutgers offer since the season ended.
It appears that Jordan wants to land at least one more guard this offseason, and that guard should be taller than 6 foot. Both Cressler and DC high school senior Jamall Gregory fits that bill. The offseason is still early, and spring recruiting is starting to heat up, so keep your eyes open here for more information.
Meanwhile, Jordan is still hot on the heels of Isaiah Briscoe and 6'5" Ewing Shooting Guard Trey Lowe, who seems to lead the world in high school scoring*. Both are 2015 players.

*That's probably hyperbole.
