It was reported Wednesday night by Bobby Deren of Rivals that redshirt freshman Ahmed Bah has transferred out of the program.
The former 3-star recruit had decommitted from Rutgers two months before National Signing Day over a year ago, only to flip back and ultimately sign with the Scarlet Knights. His former teammate at Grand Street in Brooklyn, New York, Taysir Mack, switched his own commitment from Rutgers on National Signing Day, ultimately ending up at Indiana.
While it’s unfortunate to see Bah leave the program, Rutgers just signed six receivers in the 2017 class, including 4-star recruit Bo Melton, in addition to having Jawuan Harris, Dacoven Bailey, and Ahmir Mitchell in the mix at the position after this coming season, among others.
This opens up another scholarship for the staff to use for the class of 2018, which currently has 14 players committed, including picking two new pledges this week in 3-star wide receiver Paul Woods and Aussie punter Adam Korsak. With less than 20 seniors entering their last season of eligibility, the 2018 class will be a smaller group than 2017. As of now, 247 Sports has the 2018 class for Rutgers listed 44th in the country in their composite rankings, as well as 10th in the Big Ten.
Best of luck to Ahmed Bah in the future.
