After taking an unofficial visit to the campus of Rutgers, Malcolm Bunche give his verbal commitment to the Scarlet Knights. "It was a gut feeling. I like the players, coaches and the program particularly it future. I feel that they will win a championship and I want to be a part of that. I am comfort with my decision"
The Rutgers coaching staff might have been the biggest reason why Bunche ended his recruitment."It is simple. Rutgers has the number one coach - Greg Schiano, the number one offensive line coach - Kyle Flood, and number one conditioning coordinator - Jay Butler. I might want to go to the next level and having them will help me to get there".
Bunche was also impressed by the facility especially the Dean of Rutgers College. "He is passion about education, Rutgers and football. He is serious about me getting my degree and not just playing football. Football has to end and I need to be prepared. Rutgers places me in the best position to success on and off the field".
The Scarlet Knights were high on Bunche's list before his unofficial visit but it helped to "close the deal". During the practice, he was even more impressed with how much of a great teacher Coach Flood is. "You can see that he really wants the players to get better". On his tour of the campus, he notes that "the campus is spread out but I am cool with it. The campus is nice". The stadium expansion was another impressive part of the tour. "The expansion is cool and will be done for my first year at Rutgers".
As for a position, Bunche does not mind where he plays on the offensive line. "I can play anywhere - tackles, guard and center. If I play center, I would only have to work on my shotgun snaps. I am willing to play any position that will get me on the field the fastest".
For Bunche, the commitment "took a lot off my shoulder and I'm excited. I will now focus on winning the state championship. This will be no more visit. I'm done."
Similar to many of the recruits, he plans on talking to other Rutgers prospects. His first target will be Justin Brown. "I plan to tell him about my experience and if he plans on winning the national championship, he better join me at Rutgers".
