"I'm excited," he said. "Rutgers is a football powerhouse up there and they have everything going on pretty good and it's a great school. It's worth checking out the campus and all of the facilities in person and meeting all of the coaches. I have a pretty good relationship with coach [Damian] Wroblewski, the offensive line coach."
The Rutgers move to the Big Ten, Raulerson said, is a "big time" cause for interest because of the academic opportunities and prestige of being an offensive lineman in the conference.
"It's really exciting, knowing I have a chance for Big Ten football," Raulerson said. "It's great."
Wroblewski is the main recruiter for Raulerson at Rutgers, he said, but he expects to spend time with the entire offensive staff and head coach Kyle Flood next week on his visit.
"[Wroblewski] is a great coach," Raulerson said. "He's come down to Plant a few times and I've met him and we talked. He said he likes my athletic ability and versatility. Overall he's a pretty cool guy."
"I want to see great athletic facilities and get an overall feel for every program recruiting me," Raulerson said. "It's very important, the overall atmosphere on the team. …Both of the Florida schools were really nice. They both had great facilities and campuses and everything. I liked both of them."
Louisville, Cincinnati and Missouri are the latest to offer Raulerson and are all candidates for visits later in the process, he said.
