As Rutgers looks to capitalize on their first bowl bid in 27 years, they begin the December visits by hosting six high school standouts

As Rutgers looks to capitalize on their first bowl bid in 27 years, they begin the December visits by hosting six high school standouts. Please see the list of prospects below:

Shamar Graves - a 3-star prospect with close to 20 offers from schools like Iowa, Kentucky, Syracuse, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Rutgers, Connecticut, West Virginia, and Notre Dame. On the college level, he can play either WR or LB. Rutgers is recruiting him as a WR, where he has star potential. The departure of Tres Moses and Chris Baker might provide him with early playing time.

Matt Hardison -a 2 star prospect, who has played a variety of positions in high school. Once he has the chance to focus on one position, his athleticism and speed should make him a standout performer. Rutgers is likely recruiting him as a DE which is a position of need with the graduation of Ryan Neill. He is coached by former Rutgers standout Rashard Swinger.

Jetavious Best - Last year, he signed with West Virginia. However, academic issues resulted in him enrolling in prep school. Since West Virginia is limited on scholarships, Best has reopened his recruitment. He will be visiting Rutgers for the second time in as many years.

Garrett Brown - DTs are held at a premium and this 2-star prospect is among the best in the Metro area. He fits the mold of many of the DTs that the Scarlet Knights have recruited in the past two years - a strong player with good leverage and speed.

Craig Stevens - One of the most heavily recruited LBs in the state of Florida. This 3-star LB lists offers from Alabama, Tennessee, and UCLA. His size and speed might enable him to play as a true freshman.

Ryan D'Imperio - Another multiple position standout - FB or LB. This 3-star prospect is likely being recruited as a MLB by the Scarlet Knights. He has been favoring the Knights for sometime and a commitment might be imminent.

Stay tuned for more updates...
