Davoun Fuse had pledged to Rutgers verbally on May 11th so it was merely a formality for him to make it official Wednesday. Signing the 3-star prospect from Pennsylvania is a lengthy addition to the 2022 recruiting class for Greg Schiano and the coaching staff.

Davoun Fuse is the latest athlete to sign with Rutgers Football. At 6-foot-4, he has the potential to play many positions. After being used on both sides in high school, the Scarlet Knights could use Fuse as a defensive player — whether it be linebacker or safety. Either position would allow Fuse to develop under the talent that is in place.
Rutgers is losing Christian Izien to the NFL Draft but returns some strong members in the secondary. Of course, this is led by Max Melton, who has a chance to play on Sundays in the future. Fuse has experience playing multiple positions and brings great athleticism to the mix. The coaching staff has plenty of possibilities with a player like Fuse.
