Seymour Solid with Rutgers

Brookyln (N.Y.) Grand Street defensive lineman Kamaal Seymour had multiple other schools in to see him Wednesday, but said his recruitment is over as he prepares for an official visit to Rutgers this weekend. Seymour committed to the Scarlet Knights last spring before his recruitment blew up at the end of his senior year.

After having both Penn State coach James Franklin and UCF coach George O'Leary in to see him, Brooklyn (N.Y.) Grand Street defensive lineman Kamaal Seymour told Scout he "definitely" remains committed to Rutgers.

Seymour received visits from both schools Wednesday, but expects this weekend's Rutgers official visit to be his final one before National Signing Day.

"I'm actually packing for my Rutgers visit right now," Seymour said during a Wednesday evening conversation. "...I'm done with visits after that."

UCF hosted Seymour on an official visit in December, and he recently cancelled a visit to Penn State that was set for the final week of January.

"I'm solid for Rutgers basically," Seymour said when asked what he told other coaches.

Seymour cited relationships with head coach Kyle Flood and defensive line coach Jim Panagos as reasons for an early commitment to Rutgers.

"I like the coaches, and like them academically," Seymour said. "They have a lot to offer. ... I like coach Panagos a lot. I would love to be coached by him.

"Coach Flood seems like a great person. You're not just a number to him. You're a person that he cares about. All of the players love playing for him."

Seymour arrives at Rutgers Friday afternoon with a full 48 hours on campus with more than 20 expected visitors.

"I want to get a more in-depth look at the school part," Seymour said. "I'm excited about it, and I want to show my parents everything about it when I'm there."

Seymour expects to attend Rutgers alongside teammate Alex Badine, who committed two weeks ago as a preferred walk on.

"I'm very excited about that," Seymour said. "We played on the same high school team. We've been friends for a while. It would be great to play with him."
