"I think that schools wanted to see him in this evaluation period and scout him in person," Trieu said. "Maybe a few wanted to see what he did as a senior too. He was a guy, if I had to bet, was going to really blow up during the spring evaluation period. To get him committed now before that happened, I think is big for Rutgers."
Wiegers committed to Rutgers partially because of its pro-style scheme designed by offensive coordinator Ron Prince. Prince brings NFL and head-coaching experience to Kyle Flood's staff and his pro-style look suits Wiegers' skillset well, Trieu said.
"You're getting a guy with all of the tools to be a really good college quarterback," he said. "His size, his natural ability, his ability to put the ball in small windows, when you watch him on film and in person, he has the framework. That guy has a chance to play top-level ball. He's got the physical look. You can tell that he's got a natural feel for the position."
Wiegers does not bring a dual-threat look to the quarterback position but is an impressive pocket passer with presence beyond his one year of starting experience.
"He's not a running threat but what he does have is that sixth sense in the pocket that you hear talked about," Trieu said. "He slides around in the pocket and moves well enough to escape pressure. His forte is sticking in the pocket and making good, accurate throws with really good touch. He's got really good anticipation. I think that's too often overlooked when you're looking for a quarterback"
