Brothers, teammates and now - officially - Scarlet Knights.
St. John Vianney’s Micah Clark and Jamaal Beaty made their commitment to Rutgers University official yesterday by signing their Letters of Intent.
With the papers signed and sealed, the brothers are about two weeks away from officially enrolling at Rutgers, starting up classes for the spring semester. We’ve known that Clark and Beaty have been as close to a sure thing as it gets, but it’s still nice to see the Class of 2017 officially starting to take form.
Micah Clark has been the top recruit of the 2017 class since his commitment last April. A 6’5” 4-star offensive tackle, heading to the Banks a full semester early will give Clark a very real opportunity to fight for a job come next season.
Jamaal Beaty, a 6-foot-4, 270 pound guard in his own right, is a 3-star prospect who committed with Clark last year. Beaty is a little less polished as a incoming early enrollee, but has the potential to contribute as an interior offensive lineman down the road. How cool would it be to see a pair of brothers hold down one side of the line?
Here’s to the official beginning of LOI season. Check out here how Rutgers fares in the rankings less than a month out to national signing day.
