Quick Hitter: Rutgers offers OLB/DE Hayward

Wicomico (Salisbury, Md.) athlete Derrick Hayward picked up his third verbal scholarship offer today in the form of Rutgers. Hayward visited Rutgers for the spring game and is from the same high school that safety Wayne Warren attended.

It did not take long for OLB/DE Derrick Hayward to pick up his Rutgers offer after a visit to campus.

The Wicomico (Salisbury, Md.) 2013 recruit visited Saturday for the spring game and got word today of a verbal scholarship offer from the Scarlet Knights.

"I'm just thankful that God gave me the ability and opportunity to go the a school of my choice," Hayward said. "The offer from Rutgers was great because I really enjoyed the visit."

For now, Rutgers is recruiting him as an athlete, he said, with the possibility of playing linebacker, defensive end or wide receiver.

Boston College and Maryland were Hayward's first two offers with the Golden Eagles recruiting him at defensive end and the Terrapins at outside linebacker.
