Anthony plays both fullback and linebacker, and could play either for the Scarlet Knights when he enrolls for training camp.
“I’m definitely going to Rutgers,” Anthony said. “… I can’t even explain my excitement. The players and coaches there are doing something really special. I fit in well with all of the guys on the team. The coaches were guys I want to play for.”
Walk-on tight end Charles Scarff hosted Anthony on his official visit.
“They gave me countless examples of players who walked on and went on to special things,” Anthony said. “[Scarff] loves his experience there. Coach [Kyle] Flood said that when you’re in the locker room, no one is going to know who is on scholarship and who is a walk-on. Everyone is treated with the same respect and gets the same opportunities.
Anthony’s visit ended with a 1-on-1 meeting in Flood’s office and a commitment.
“He seems like a great guy,” Flood said. “He’s down to earth, and just so nice. I can’t wait to play for him.”
Born in Morristown, N.J., Anthony moved to New York at five years old. The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder played for former Rutgers running back Joe Burke in high school before he moved on to a semester at Phillips Academy.
“I can’t wait to tell him,” Anthony said. “His name is up in the Hale Center where they have all of the NFL players. I saw his name under the Jets, which was a cool thing. I took a picture with it.”
