While Rutgers welcomed 3-star quarterback Cole Snyder to the program on the first day of the early signing period, the position was still lacking depth for next season. After Jalen Chatman transferred out last week, it left Artur Sitkowski as the only scholarship quarterback on the active roster. The coaching staff showed how hard they are working to rectify that issue later on Wednesday. Brian Dohn of 247 Sports broke the news that Johnny Langan is transferring from Boston College to Rutgers.

The former Bergen Catholic star redshirted as a freshman last season for Boston College. Per this article from Todderick Hunt of NJ Advance Media, Langan has applied for a hardship waiver to bypass traditional transfer rules that require a player to sit out the following season. If Langan is granted the hardship waiver, he would be eligible to play next season. He would have four years of eligibility remaining if his request is approved by the NCAA, which is never a guarantee.

The former 3-star recruit threw for 2,103 yards and 23 touchdowns in leading Bergen Catholic to a Non-Public Group IV state title in 2017. He also rushed for 825 yards 12 touchdowns his senior campaign. He of course played at Bergen Catholic for then head coach and current running backs coach at Rutgers, Nunzio Campanile.

Per Langan’s 247 recruiting profile, he held offers from Syracuse, Rutgers, Temple, Georgia State and Buffalo, in addition to Boston College and was receiving some interest from programs like Clemson, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin.

Here are highlights of Langan’s senior year at Bergen Catholic, who was ranked the 43rd best pro-style prospect in the class of 2018.
