Rutgers Basketball: Jahlil Tripp Commits to Rutgers

New, 8 comments

Tripp is the first 2016 commitment for Eddie Jordan.

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

After being burned by Kwe Parker in November, it's been a slog for Eddie Jordan to try and land a player for his next class.  He may have finally broken through.

Tripp is a 6'5" shooting guard, who will likely be one of the players to fill a spot vacated by Bishop Daniels and Omari Grier. Tripp had offers from Quinnipiac, Manhattan, UNC-Wilmington, and Fairfield, per Rivals and 247. Tripp was beginning to get interest from St. John's, Minnesota and Seton Hall as well. At one point, high majors were taking a look at Tripp, but he was tragically shot during a girl's basketball game at his high school in 2013.

Also visiting today, officially, is 6'5" wing Maishe Dailey.  Dailey has a ton of Big Ten interest, but-apparently-no official offers yet from any team in conference besides Rutgers.
