On Saturday, one of college football's blue-blood programs will visit High Point Solutions Stadium for a primetime clash under the lights. And Michigan will be there too! (seriously folks try the veal, and tip your bartenders).
Rutgers will play its second-ever game in the B1G, and the atmosphere, even with a somewhat hobbled Michigan program, should be electric. Coach Flood and company will take advantage of the prime time stage to host a number of visitors. Check back throughout the week, as OTB will update this list as we confirm new visitors.

Naseir Upshur, 4* 2016 TE from Philadelphia, attended the ttfp game. UPDATE: Now he's not coming. Damn. See Todderick's tweet below.
Attending another Rutgers game.. Rutgers vs Michigan ❗️— Pop (@NaseirUpshur) September 22, 2014
Imhotep's game time Saturday was moved to 6pm, so Naseir Upshur and company will no longer be able to make the #Rutgers-#Michigan game.— Todderick Hunt (@TodderickHunt) October 1, 2014
Jonathan Pollock, 2016 3* LB from Orlando, FL, attended the ttfp game, and has a lot of RU interest. Keep in mind, this will be the second trip from Florida in less than a month at his own expense. I caught up with him in the Blue Lot before ttfp, and he was walking around with big Ted Field, RU's class of 2016 Ambassador-in-Chief. All good.
Orlando's Jonathan Pollock @kingpollock will be back at Rutgers for the blackout game at Michigan, he tells me.— Sam Hellman (@SamHellmanScout) September 18, 2014

Jordan Fuller, 4* ATH from Old Tappan is expected to visit for the Michigan game. Fuller was also expected for the ttfp game, but missed it so he could watch his brother Devin and his UCLA team play Texas.
