Cedar Grove WR Evidence Njoku Lands Rutgers Offer

Cedar Grove (N.J.) wide receiver Evidence Njoku picked up his fourth verbal scholarship offer Saturday during a visit to Rutgers for Junior Day.

Rutgers upped its recruitment of Evidence Njoku Saturday with a verbal scholarship offer out to the 2017 Cedar Grove (N.J.) wide receiver.

Njoku, whose older brother David Njoku was once a Rutgers verbal commitment, sits at four offers after his visit to Piscataway, N.J.

"It feels very good," Njoku said. "It's also very exciting for my family, friends and school, which is great."

Njoku spent in-depth time with new Rutgers receivers coach Jafar Williams during his visit to campus.

"I spoke with him for about 10 minutes and I think he is the type of coach an athlete can really develop a bond with," Njoku said. "He was the one that gave me the scholarship and I feel Ike he's a good guy."

Njoku was familiar with Rutgers as a younger player because the Scarlet Knights recruited his brother before he signed with Miami. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver described a different view of the school after he met with new head coach Chris Ash.

"I would say the new energy and vibe the coaches showed [stood out]," Njoku said. "It's like they're all hungry for the same goal, and that is to be successful."

Njoku also holds offers from Old Dominion, Maryland and Temple.
