Rutgers Football Recruiting Sets Its Sights on Youngest Stars
by Anthony Caruso on July 17, 2012
Rutgers University made national headlines last month when it offered scholarships to two New Jersey football players, before they even entered high school. Incoming freshmen quarterbacks Jordan Fuller of Old Tappan and Bergen Catholic’s Jarrett Guarantano both received scholarship offers from the university.
Although the players are some of the youngest to ever receive college scholarship offers, Rutgers did not violate any NCAA recruiting rules. Nonetheless, verbal scholarship offers, while common, are not recognized by the NCAA and are not binding on the player or the school. In fact, Fuller and Guarantano will likely not fully commit to a school until the winter of their senior year, when they sign a national letter of intent.
