Bishop Kearney High (Rochester, N.Y.) three-star linebacker Quentin Gause took in Syracuse's game against Connecticut on Saturday, but the Rutgers commit said in no way does that mean he is wavering with his commitment to the Scarlet Knights.

Gause said he remains "fully committed" to Rutgers, and his father, Richard Gause, added Quentin was "totally committed to Rutgers."

Quentin and Richard Gause spoke to at length Monday night, and both said nothing changed in his recruitment, and he wasn't looking at other schools.

"All I did was go to a game, to go to a game, with some friends from (the area)," Quentin Gause said. "I'm fully committed to Rutgers."

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Gause added his only official visit will be to Rutgers the weekend of Dec. 10-12.

"My son is totally committed to Rutgers. He wants to be a Scarlet Knight," Richard Gause said. "As a dad, I feel comfortable sending my son to coach (Greg) Schiano. We're a Scarlet Knight family. The only official visit we're going on is to Rutgers."

Gause is the 22nd-rated outside linebacker in's 2011 class. He committed to Rutgers on May 21, and has been a regular visitor to campus for games and has been active in helping recruit other players into the class.

The Gause family spoke to Rutgers assistant coach Bob Fraser (he recruits Bishop Kearney) on Monday night to reiterate the pledge to the school, and to ensure him he was firmly committed to Rutgers.
