Foreman Verbally Commits to Rutgers

Massanutten Military Academy (Woodstock, Va.) 2014 forward Dwayne Foreman verbally committed to Rutgers and basketball coach Eddie Jordan today. Foreman held double-digit scholarship offers before ending his recruitment by committing to Rutgers.

Rutgers basketball coach Eddie Jordan continues to share his vision for the future of Rutgers basketball and Massanutten Military Academy (Woodstock, Va.) 2014 forward Dwayne Foreman was quick to commit to Rutgers after spending time talking to Jordan, who preached family and the chance to play close to his home in Spring Valley, N.Y.

"I feel great because I feel like I'm a part of the family now," Foreman said. "Ever since I talked to Eddie Jordan and the coaching staff, I knew it was the place for me."

Foreman visited campus to meet with Jordan and the assistant coaching staff and offered rave reviews.

"Coach Jordan is really great," he said. "He really focuses on being family oriented. He made me feel like I'm right at home at Rutgers and I'll be an important piece of the team when I get there the following season."

Foreman is currently enrolled at Massanutten Military Academy but comes from New York and spent time at Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.).

"I just felt that it was the best fit for me to excel as a playmaker and have a family-like program," he said. "They really convinced me that I can be a big part of what they're building."

He projects as a wing in the Rutgers scheme and can run the floor at 6-foot-7.

"I bring height and I bring a lot of aggressiveness," he said. "I play hard and I have a jump shot."

The move to the Big Ten was a big selling point for Foreman, who also held offers from Pittsburgh, Auburn, Alabama, Iowa State, Providence and others.

"I'm very excited to be heading to the Big Ten," he said. "It's the perfect conference for me."

Foreman is the second verbal commitment in the Rutgers 2014 class, joining Bishop Daniels.

"He's a 6-foot-7 athletic face-up four," said FOXSportsNEXT basketball analyst Evan Daniels. "He runs the floor well, pretty good athletically and plays well in transition."
