Jerome Messam has been widely considered as one of Canada's top recruiting prospects this year.  At 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds the young man from Brampton, Ontario runs a freakish 4.36 forty yard dash.  Messam was one of a number of recruits on hand this weekend for an official to Rutgers.

At 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds, Messam sounds like he has the perfect build for a fullback at the next level.  However, Rutgers was recruiting him as a tailback, alongside FB Brian Leonard.  Messam was one of eight prospects on hand this past weekend taking an official visit to Rutgers.

During his junior season, Messam tallied a whopping 26 touchdowns and rushed for over 2,600 yards during only 9 games.

"Jason Nugent was my host.  He showed me around.  I knew him from before and he really likes it there."

Messam's official trip to Rutgers involved a pleasurable getaway to the Big Apple, a destination he had not been to before this weekend.

"I had a great time.  I was loving it.  The weight room is awesome, it's all state-of-the-art.  The coaches are really down to earth and laid back.  Coach Schiano, when we met, made me feel real comfortable."

[The trip to New York City] "was fun.  I had a lot of fun.  We went to New York on Friday night.  We went to ESPN Zone.  We played a lot of video games and they fed us really good.  I was loving it."

Still involved in the picture for Messam are South Carolina, Akron, and Michigan State

Messam stated that he still plans on taking more visits in order that he be absolutely certain regarding a final destination.  Included on his visit list will be the program that he favored from the very beginning of his recruitment process - the Spartans of Michigan State.

"I have Akron coming up on the 10th.  And Michigan State, I will find out when I'll visit [them] this Tuesday."
