Union City (N.J.) lineman Ulises De Los Santos was one of the top 2016 performers at the Rutgers Big Man Academy, and the experiences with the coaching staff made an impact.
“I’d say they’re up top right now,” De Los Santos said. “I love everything about it.”
Rutgers was the first offer for the 6-foot-3, 260-pound lineman. The staff remains in contact with De Los Santos, who said Syracuse, Old Dominion and Georgia State are also aggressive in his recruitment.
“They’re a live coaching staff at Rutgers,” he said. “They wanted you to hustle all of the time, and I like that about them.”
De Los Santos camped on both sides of the ball after Rutgers offered him last year as an offensive lineman.
“I liked it,” he said. “It was fun. I feel like I can dominate on both sides of the ball, so I wanted to show that and do both. They want me at OG. They really want me on offense.”
“Rutgers camp was fun,” he said. “I learned some stuff, so it was a good day. It was pretty live. It was intense. There were a bunch of big boys just out competing.”
