Gause was hosted by fellow update New Yorker Jordan Thomas, who just completed his freshman season with the Scarlet Knights.
"The whole experience was great," Gause said. "I got to know more about the detail of what kind of people the staff is, and how coach (Greg) Schiano's staff is, and got to know more about the people of Rutgers and the students."
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Gause committed to Rutgers in May, and was a frequent visitor to games this season.
His visit included meetings with the coaching staff, and it was discussed how he would be used. "They showed me a little bit," Gause said. "They didn't get into it too much. They said outside linebacker."
The trip included hanging out with future teammates and other recruits, but it was the academic aspect that stood out the most to Gause.
"The most important thing is they had presentations about who you're going to be with," he said. "(Strength coach) Jay Butler did the presentation, there had the academic staff do a presentation, coach Schiano talked to us, we took a tour of the campus and we kept eating, and then ate more. It was a lot of fun."
Gause said he also stays in touch with several of the players Rutgers is recruiting, and talks to them about the process.
"I stay connected with other guys, like (St. Peter's Prep running back ) Savon Huggins," Gause said. "I tell them not to be pressured by other people trying to be in his ear. I think he knows what right."
