Maryland Transfer Dill Chooses Rutgers

Offensive lineman R.J. Dill, who chose to transfer from Maryland for his final year of eligibility, chose Rutgers as his destination. Aiming to help Rutgers win a conference championship next season, Dill has one year to play one and will enroll next semester to participate in spring practice.

Rutgers added a major veteran presence on the offensive line today when R.J. Dill announced his choice for his fifth year of eligibly.

After four years at Maryland and three as a starter at right tackle, Dill chose to transfer for his fifth year.

Dill will enroll at Rutgers for the spring semester and compete immediately for a starting job at right tackle.

The 6-foot-7 Dills hails from Mechanicsburg, Pa., — the same hometown as freshman linebacker Kevin Snyder — where he was a two-star recruit in 2008.

"I would like to thank all the coaches who reached out and offered me a place to further my academic and athletic endeavors," Dill said in a statement. "However I have decided to finish my collegiate career at Rutgers University. I feel that Rutgers offers me the best opportunity to better myself as a student athlete. I am excited to end this college search so that I can focus on getting my graduate degree in labor relations, and look forward to becoming part of the Rutgers football family."
