Federico camped at Rutgers last month and earned an offer after his performance. Earlier in the spring he was one of the top kickers at the Auburn campus.
"I just got off the phone with coach (Greg) Schiano to say I am committing," Federico said.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Federico told ScarletReport.com Wednesday morning he was going to commit to Rutgers after enjoying his camp experience, and his visit. As a junior, Federico made 8 of 13 field goal attempts.
The need for a placekicker in the class was huge since San San Te is a fifth-year senior and will use his eligibility up in 2011.
Federico is also a standout soccer player, scoring 13 goals as a junior.
