NCAA Football: Morgan State at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

As we watch the Scarlet Knights week in and week out, we will continue to check in on the Knights of the future to track their success on the high school gridiron. The highlighted Class of 2018 commits will be listed by ranking according to 247Sports.

Zihir Lacewell - 3* Wide Receiver, Tottenville (NY)

Rutgers’ top 2018 commit had an absolutely monster game this past weekend, stuffing the stat sheet on both sides of the ball. According to the man himself, Lacewell had 100 yards receiving with a touchdown, a 60-yard punt return touchdown, 10 tackles on defense and a forced fumble.

Amad Anderson - 3* Athlete, Curtis (NY)

Anderson was able to add to his highlight reel this past weekend, snagging two touchdowns in his team’s 54-14 win over Kennedy. While his 62-yard touchdown beating the Kennedy secondary was great, it is hard to get any better than this one-handed touchdown catch he pulled in.

Isaih Pacheco - 3* Running Back, Vineland (NJ)

Pacheco played the game of a lifetime this past Friday, leading his team to a blowout 60-6 victory over Cumberland just hours after attending his older sister’s funeral. The emotional Pacheco rushed 13 times for 157 yards and three touchdowns. The NJ athlete also returned a punt 66 yards for a touchdown in the game.

Paul Woods - 3* Wide Receiver, Canisius (NY)

Woods showed his nose for the end zone in his team’s 35-14 victory over Cardinal O’Hara this past weekend, catching three passes for 60 yards, two of which were for touchdowns.

Jalen Chatman - 3* Dual-Threat Quarterback, Narbonne (CA)

Just a week after throwing for 523 yards and five touchdowns in a 56-50 loss to St. Louis (HI), Chatman had an bye week on his schedule. The versatile quarterback was able to travel across the country to watch a game in person at his future home.

Stevie Scott - 3* Running Back, Christian Brothers Academy (NY)

Scott’s senior season is on hold as of now, having suffered a foot injury on 9/16. Scott has not appeared in a game since.

Sean Chambers - 3* Dual Threat Quarterback, Kerman (CA)

UPDATE: Chambers decommitted from Rutgers on Monday

Chambers led his team to victory with a monster performance this past weekend, contributing five touchdowns on the day to continue his stellar senior season.

Deion Jennings - 3* Cornerback, Timber Creek (NJ)

Jennings was another Rutgers commit to visit his future home this weekend. The defensive back picked up five tackles and 64 receiving yards in the week prior to his bye week.
