Rutgers had two big visitors on campus last week at the running back spot in Alonso's (Fla.) Ish Witter and St. Peters Prep's (Jersey City, N.J.) Jonathan Hilliman. Both offered positive reviews of their unofficial visits.
Hilliman told FOXSportsNEXT.com he planned to announce a decision that would "shock" people the week of Aug. 12. He has tentative visits scheduled for Miami and Vanderbilt before a decision.
Montclair (N.J.) defensive end Darius Slade did not visit West Virginia for camp this weekend for personal reasons but still plans to get to Morgantown before a decision. Slade also has visits set up for Rutgers and Michigan State.
Miami Norland (Fla.) receiver Kendrick Edwards plans to announce the first week of August with Rutgers as his leader and Louisville second. Edwards camped for three days at Rutgers and has never been to Louisville.
Village Academy (Delray Beach, Fla.) defensive end Kevin Bronson continues to list Rutgers as his leader.
