Teel has verballed to the
I caught up with Mike and asked about his verbal Rutgers.
What made you verbal at this time?
"I just felt comfortable down there. The things that they told me, the things that they showed me. Coach Schiano has done a great job recruiting since he has been there. He is going to turn that program around. I didn't go the camp. I just decided right now because it just felt right. I went to a bunch of schools in the Big East and the ACC to check them out and Rutgers just felt right."
Did the recent defections from the Big East concern you?
"At first it did but I talked to my coach about that. Boston College, Syracuse and Pitt are still in the league. They'll probably add a team from Florida. They are still a very competitive league."
What offers did you receive?
"Rutgers and Wisconsin offered me. Boston College, Virginia, Maryland and Michigan State all told me that they would offer if they liked what they saw in my senior year."
What will you bring to Rutgers?
"Hopefully, some more Jersey kids. Hopefully others will follow me and start something great at Rutgers."
