Hart does not have an offer from Rutgers coach Kyle Flood, but received one recently from Buffalo and will camp in Piscataway, N.J., this summer to showcase himself.
"So far I really like Rutgers," Hart said. "The coaches are great, really funny. They are always talking to me and showing me a lot of love in recruiting."
A 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect, Hart projects as a wide receiver but could grow into a tight end role with his frame and athleticism. He will camp at both Rutgers and Temple as a wide receiver.
"I wouldn't go to a camp if I didn't think I'd have a chance at them offered me," Hart said. "If I go to Rutgers and Temple, it's because they said they want to offer me and see what I can do."
Now a two-time visitor to Rutgers, Hart said he feels a comfort level with the staff that he did not see on visits elsewhere.
"Rutgers is one of my favorite places to visit," Hart said. "When I'm there with [my teammates], they show us more love than any of the other prospects there. It's a great coaching staff."
Buffalo was the first program to offer Hart. Since receiving the offer, more than a dozen schools expressed interest in seeing him this spring.
"The first offer is really important to me," Hart said. "I feel like I was waiting and waiting and a weight was lifted. I got the first offer and more should come."
Buffalo is recruiting Hart exclusively as a wide receiver.
"They really like me there," Hart said. "They feel that I can come in and maybe start early. I can be a real threat for their team."
