Recruiting is on an uptick for wide receiver Ahmed Bah after he transferred this semester to Brooklyn (N.Y.) Grand Street Campus.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound receiver recently visited Rutgers, where the Scarlet Knights impressed with a New York feel.
“It was a great visit,” Bah said. “I got to meet the receivers coach and talk a lot about the school. We talked about my academics, and how I could do well and try to contribute early for them. They can benefit me in the future if football doesn’t go my way.”
With coach Kyle Flood as a native New York and Brooklyn players like Deonte Roberts enrolled, Bah said he felt comfortable on his recent visit.
“Deonte said he wants me to commit to Rutgers,” Bah said. “He said he loves Rutgers so far.”
Bah projects to return to Rutgers in search of an offer during the spring or summer.
“My coach said they’re close but they want to see more before they offer me,” he said.
A recent transfer to Grand Street, Bah attends the same school as two seniors headed for Rutgers – defensive tackle Kamaal Seymour and defensive back Alex Badine. Teammate Taysir Mack visited and has a Rutgers offer dating back to last summer.
“I think I’m a physical player,” he said. “I attack the ball. I’m not afraid of making contact or challenging the DB.”
