Greg Schiano has added another wide receiver in the Class of 2022.

It began with the commitment of Addison Copeland out of Buffalo, NY then Rashad Rochelle from Springfield, IL. This time, the Scarlet Knights landed an in-state commitment.

Cedar Creek’s JoJo Bermudez announced his commitment to Rutgers on Thursday night. The news came just one day after he received his official offer.

“I learned about their culture on the phone call,” Bermudez told Rivals. “Coach Fran [Brown] and Coach [Tiquan] Underwood were also on the call. He talked about always telling the truth and sacrificing for your brothers. My former head coach [Tim Watson] would teach us those same things in the classroom. He would teach me how to be a better person on the field and off the field.”

Bermudez is a three-star recruit, according to 247Sports. He is a speedy wide receiver with great playmaking ability. The Scarlet Knights have made it clear that they want to add offensive firepower in the future and Bermudez is one of the best in New Jersey.

The Egg Harbor product chose Rutgers over Central Michigan, UConn, UMass, Syracuse, Yale, and Princeton. At the end of the day, the Scarlet Knights’ pitch was far better than other schools.

“I like other schools too,” Bermudez told NJ Advance Media. “The way Rutgers recruits compared to the other schools, it’s way different. Other schools, they offer me but don’t really talk to me. Rutgers, they got me on a Zoom call — me and my sister. They were asking us a bunch of questions and teaching me about Rutgers. No other school did that.”

Rutgers currently has the 40th ranked recruiting class for 2021 and are well on their way in 2022. The Schiano factor continues to roll.
