Despite his commitment to the Scarlett Knights, the Notre Dame coaching staff was hoping that Miles Shuler (5-foot-10, 175-pounds) would give Notre Dame one more look before signing day.
"I've been talking with them (Notre Dame) and I've been in touch with them," Shuler said. "But they understand that I'm a solid commitment to Rutgers…they understand.
"After the (U.S. Army All-American) game I had a chance to speak with them on the phone and I let them know that I'm going to Rutgers.
"They want me to at least take a visit, but I'm not going to take a visit out there," he said. "I don't want to create a controversy with Rutgers coaches. I'm a solid commitment to Rutgers."
Not only doesn't Shuler want to create issues for the Rutgers coaching staff, he also doesn't want to send the wrong message to the other Rutgers commitments.
"I don't want the (Rutgers) recruiting class to think that I'm thinking about other schools and think that I don't have confidence in the school," Shuler explained. "I have confidence in the school and the coaches that I picked."
