January is an exciting month for South Brunswick (N.J.) 2016 receiver Mohamed Jabbie, and the fun started last week with a visit from his future coaches.
Jabbie, one of three committed to the Rutgers class of 2016, received a visit from the majority of the offensive coaching staff on Thursday at school.
“It was pretty cool to see them all,” Jabbie said. “It shows they care about me, and wanted to see me before they went on the road to go on recruiting trips. I thought it was really cool that they stopped by.”
The Rutgers offensive staff hit the road to see many 2016 targets last week, including stops at Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic, Wayne (N.J.) DePaul Catholic, Palmyra (N.J.) and South Brunswick.
“I felt honored that they stopped by,” Jabbie said.
Jabbie’s January continues Monday when he and friend Dwayne Haskins unofficially visit Rutgers. Haskins is a four-star quarterback from Potomac (Md.) The Bullis School with multiple ties to Rutgers and Central Jersey.
“We’re obviously good friends, so I’m excited to just hang out with him and check out Rutgers again,” Jabbie said. “I tell him every day that it would be great to play together. I want to be catching touchdowns from him.”
The 2015 International Bowl pits the Under-18 U.S. National Football Team against Team Canada from AT&T Stadium on Jan. 30.
“I think it’s a really sick experience,” Jabbie said. “I’m playing at the Dallas Cowboys stadium. I’m playing with some of my best friends. I get to represent Rutgers.”
“I talked to him about it but a field’s a field,” Jabbie said. “… It was cool watching how well he did this year, but they have to win a playoff game before I start making any more noise.”
