Blacknall confirmed his commitment in a text to ScarletReport.com.
Blacknall ended his recruitment by committing to the Scarlet Knights during a visit to campus. He was also considering LSU, Alabama and Ohio State. It was his second straight Saturday on the Rutgers campus, and during the latest visit he took in the scrimmage and spent time speaking with Rutgers receiver Brandon Coleman, who did not participate.
"Rutgers is like home to me," Blacknall said after last week's visit. "The coaching staff is loving and it's just a warm feeling there. You can't go wrong on Rutgers. They were never not in the mix. I don't know why people would think, ‘Oh, I don't know why he's not looking at Rutgers?'"
Blacknall, who is 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, is the No. 13 receiver in the 2014 class, and is the top-rated player to commit to the Scarlet Knights in the class.
