Cedar Grove WR names top seven schools

Cedar Grove (N.J.) wide receiver David Njoku has Rutgers solidly in his top schools after a Saturday unofficial visit. Njoku went in-depth on his return to Rutgers and what stands out after spending junior day in Piscataway.

Cedar Grove (N.J.) wide receiver David Njoku has Rutgers on top after his unofficial visit Saturday drew rave reviews. Rutgers was first to offer Njoku and left a positive impression on him today when he returned for a second visit.

Focused on seven schools, Njoku said Rutgers is up top after a visit but still has more visits to take before looking at a decision.

"I loved every second of it," Njoku said on his visit. "It was very similar to my last visit, but I just get a great feeling when I'm there and get along very well with the coaches."

Njoku's top seven schools, he said, are Rutgers, Boston College, Maryland, Penn State, Wisconsin, Missouri and Michigan. Not all of the schools have offered, he said, but are visit targets and schools heavily involved in his recruitment.

"Rutgers has showed that they want me bad," Njoku said. "The brotherhood there is something that I can't get out of my mind. It's a great school."

The talented 6-foot-4 receiver will return to Rutgers next week to watch program's first scrimmage of the spring. After seeing the school in a private setting and on a junior day visit, he is excited for a third trip and a chance to show the campus to more family members.

"I'm just looking to have more of the same experience," he said. "I was scheduled to visit [Rutgers] just next week but had a change of plans so I could come today. I'm already excited to go back and I just left."

Njoku cited his 1-on-1 meeting with head coach Kyle Flood as the highlight of his Saturday.

"I had a great conversation with the head coach Kyle Flood," Njoku said. "He just seems so fatherly. He's a great man. I appreciate that."

Njoku recently visited Penn State and wants to take more visits before looking at a decision. He has no formal timetable for a decision, but is focused on the schools in his top seven.

Njoku scored 12 total touchdowns as a junior and caught 30 passes for 711 yards.
