Super Bowl week begins today with Rutgers well represented. Anthony Davis is set to start at right tackle for the San Francisco 49ers while Ray Rice will start at running back for the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens also have defensive lineman Alex Silvestro on the practice squad.
Rutgers hosted multiple big-name prospects on its official visit weekend. Uncommitted prospects included University School (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) linebacker Skai Moore, Pasco (Fla.) receiver Janarion Grant and ASA guard Ali Kassem.
Commits in attendance this weekend were linebacker Myles Nash, defensive end Nick Internicola, guard Dorian Miller, receiver Andre Patton, defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph, receiver John Tsimis and tight end Taylor Marini.
The Feb. 1 weekend will be the final official visit weekend before National Signing Day. For Rutgers, it will feature a series of committed prospects, walk-on targets and Dwight Morrow safety Naiquan Thomas, who could earn an offer.
It was a rough week for Rutgers basketball, which lost a pair of games to St. John's and Connecticut. Now on a three-game losing streak, the Scarlet Knights fall to 3-5 in Big East play.
Sophomore guard Elijah Carter struggled in both games. Benched for Connecticut after a 1-for-14 performance against St. John's, Carter scored 13 off the bench, but committed five turnovers and four fouls.
Rutgers (12-7, 3-5) returns to action Wednesday at Cincinnati.
