The Scarlet Knights secured a commitment from Wide Receiver Stanley King, out of Woodrow Wilson in Camden. His signature was announced by Rutgers on twitter minutes ago.
King is at worst a solid three-star prospect who will compete hard in practice and provide depth at tight end and wide receiver. At best, he is the big, superstar wideout the Scarlet Knights have not had since Brandon Coleman. He played cornerback in high school as well which is impressive for such a tall young player. He moves very smoothly on both sides of the ball, but will need to get stronger. He showed growth and was absolutely dominant in 2018 leading the state in most receiving categories. In the winter season, he competes on the hardwood.
Position: WR (6’5”, 175 lbs.)
High School: Woodrow Wilson
Hometown: Camden, NJ
Most notable other offers: Louisville, Virginia, Maryland
Rutgers has been the worst passing team in the country that was not primarily option running offense the past two seasons. The underclassmen have not performed whatsoever. Anyone who can get open against press coverage or reliably catch a football will play immediately and possibly put up huge stats.
Floor: Tejay Johnson
Most likely: Kevin Brock
Best case: Andre Patton
Here are some of King’s highlights:
Welcome to the banks Stanley!
