Snorweah played alongside Denman three years ago, and they have discussed playing together again ever since then.
"I ran with him my freshman year," Snorweah said. "J.J. had a big input on my decision with Rutgers. I'm just excited. Me and JJ have been talking about this for a while now. He's been a good role model for me since my freshman year in high school."
Snorweah added his Rutgers offer while on campus Friday for a full tour of the program. He ended the visit with a commitment to coach Kyle Flood.
"It was really excited," Snorweah said. "When I talked to him, it was a really exciting moment for me. I was excited to commit."
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound back ran for over 1,000 yards while splitting carries in a wing-T offense at Pennsbury. He sees the Big Ten as a fit for his style.
"I'm excited because I've been waiting for this moment for a long time," Snorweah said. "I think Rutgers fans, from me, can expect a fast, talented and athletic guy that is committed to working hard. I'm committed to getting better, and that's what I'll bring to the table.
"The Big Ten is known for big players and running backs. I'm excited to bring myself to the Big Ten. I think I bring my athleticism and speed to that conference."
Snorweah cited three factors in the Rutgers program that sold him on a commitment – education, family and competition.
"The three things are education," he said. "One is education. They have a great education close to home. Two is the family bond. When you're at Rutgers University, you feel like you're one of them. The competition is No. 3. Being able to compete at a high level in the Big Ten conference and being able to play for a national championship is great."
Defensive backs coach Daryl Wilson and running backs coach Norries Wilson led the charge on his recruitment, Snorweah said.
"They're open," he said. "They care for you more than on a football level. It's a family thing with both of them. They make you feel at home."
