One Commitment, One Departure for Jordan

Tuesday morning kicked off with multiple developments on the Rutgers basketball front after relative silence heading into the Big Ten. ScarletReport.com looks at the latest inside.

Rutgers assistant coach Kyle Triggs is out, which leaves a second full-time vacancy on Eddie Jordan's bench, sources told ScarletReport.com. The departure was first reported by New Jersey Press Media.

Triggs' departure makes for two full-time assistant coaching vacancies under Jordan, to go along with Austin Johnson's move out of a graduate assistant role. Jordan was close to multiple hires on his staff in May, and the urgency increases with enroll freshmen now on campus.

In recruiting, Pittsburgh signee Shaquille Doorson is close to his enrollment at Rutgers. Doorson flipped to Rutgers after not reporting for Pittsburgh's summer league program, and is expected to enroll in Piscataway this week.

The 6-foot-11 Doorson projects as a center and hails from the Netherlands. He played at the Canarias Basketball Academy in Spain under coach Rob Orellana.

Doorson, 19, will be an instant competitor to replace Wally Judge as the starting center for Rutgers in the Big Ten.
