Grand Street WR Duo Commits to Rutgers

Brooklyn (N.Y.) Grand Street Campus wide receivers Taysir Mack and Ahmed Bah kicked off camp festivities at Rutgers with a pair of verbal commitments to the Scarlet Knights and coach Kyle Flood.

The Brooklyn invasion continues for Rutgers, and this time it is a combo deal for the Scarlet Knights.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood picked up two verbal commitments Friday afternoon from wide receiver teammates Taysir Mack and Ahmed Bah of Grand Street Campus.

The Three-star Mack is Scout’s top New York prospect, and ranks as the 11th best player in the region at his position. He chose Rutgers over offers including Syracuse and Connecticut.

“With Taysir going into Rutgers, he’s going to prove to the Ohio States and Alabamas what he can do,” Eugene said. “Rutgers has put more receivers in the league than a lot of other schools. He’s a speed demon, and he wants to prove what he can do.”

Bah checks in at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, and ranks as the second best receiver in the Empire State behind his teammate.

“He can be great at Rutgers,” Eugene said. “They run a lot three receivers, one tight end sets, so he’ll be that big bodied possession receiver. He has deceptive speed. He can beat you when he needs to.”

Rutgers offered Mack during last camp season, where he was one of the top underclassmen in a 7-on-7 passing camp.

“He’s underrated,” Eugene said. “When you go out to these camps and these combines, you can see that he’s by far one of the top in the country or the region or whatever. That’s the thing that motivates him and drives him. He wants to prove to everyone that he’s one of the best.”

Bah added a Rutgers offer during a birthday visit at the spring game. He visited the next day with his parents, which was the decisive moment in his recruitment.

“He’s big and strong and physical and he plays that way,” Eugene said. “He can come in and assert himself and be dominant. … He can run and jump and uses his big body to shield the ball [in the red zone]. He’s a dual threat when it gets to that area.”

Mack and Bah become the second and third commitment of the week for Rutgers. They join another Brooklyn three-star in linebacker Elias Reynolds of Poly Prep as June commitments for Rutgers.

Rutgers holds commitments from three projected receivers, including Monmouth Junction (N.J.) South Brunswick’s Mohamed Jabbie. Regional standouts Trevon Diggs, Kelvin Harmon and Brad Hawkins will be among Friday night’s competitors at the skills camp.
