"I verbally committed to Rutgers," Fuchs told ScarletReport.com.
Fuchs made his commitment on the way to his final game at New Berlin (N.Y.) Milford Academy and will officially visit Rutgers Dec. 7.
"I'm excited to be joining Rutgers, and look forward to making big things happen in the future," Fuchs said.
Fuchs, who is teammates with Rutgers commit Eric Wiafe, committed to Rutgers as a tight end, and said he will also look to walk on as a basketball player. Rutgers assistant basketball coach Van Macon recruited Fuchs out of Christ The King (New York).
Fuchs de-committed from Connecticut after signing a football Letter of Intent on National Signing Day. Fuchs had also planned to walk onto the Connecticut basketball team before his release.
