Rutgers Sees Florida TE David in Bye Week

Fighting fit after tearing his ACL last season, Chaminade Madonna (Hollywood, Fla.) tight end Orland David is back in the spotlight and receiving interest from multiple schools, including Rutgers. Rutgers came to see David during the bye week and the three-star tight end discussed where Rutgers stands among 10 offers.

Chaminade Madonna (Hollywood, Fla.) tight end Orland David said six schools are still in contact with him since he tore his ACL last season, with Rutgers being one of them.

Rutgers verbally offered David during his junior season and came to see him play last week in his second game back on the field.

"It said a lot that they came all the way from New Jersey to check me out," David said. "I'm blessed to be back and healthy. I'm just trying to stay humble."

David told during the summer that he plans to take an official visit to Rutgers, but has yet to schedule any trips.

"I want to get up there to see the atmosphere," David said. "I want to see how the players and coaches work together. I want to know what it would be like to join their family."

Alabama, Cincinnati, Marshall, Nebraska and Louisville are the other schools in contact with David, he said.

"It means a lot that those schools are still trusting in me after a devastating injury," David said. "I don't have favorites now. I think I also want to visit Nebraska and Alabama, but all the schools are in it."
