Rutgers Opening Recap: Top Targets and Interviews

The Scout national recruiting team swarmed Oregon this weekend for the Opening, and brought plenty of coverage on the key Rutgers names involved at the biggest recruiting event of the summer. If you missed any of the action, including interviews with top recruits, check out the coverage in one spot.

Two Opening prospects have Rutgers high on their lists and discussed the program during their weekend in Oregon.

Rutgers also remains in the fight for the best non-committed prospect in New Jersey – Paramus (N.J.) Catholic four-star linebacker Drew Singleton. Sngleton visited Rutgers both for the June camp circuit and multiple spring practices in Piscataway.

Singleton already knows one official visit and the Scout 100 prospect had plenty to say at the event about the schools still involved in his recruitment.

In the southern part of the Garden State, a pair of prospects remain high on the Rutgers board and interested in the changes under Chris Ash at Rutgers.

Cherry Hill (N.J.) West cornerback Harrison Hand is the top player at his position in the State.

Rutgers targeted Hand early in the process, and hopes he joins other top New Jersey cornerbacks Edwin Lopez, Bryce Watts and Naijee Jones. Virginia Tech and Temple round out the competition for Hand.

Hand camped with Rutgers at its Fairleigh Dickinson top prospect event. He earned an Opening invitation after he locked down competition at the regional event in Florham Park, N.J., and likely returns to campus for training camp.

Bridgeton (N.J.) four-star athlete Markquese Bell rounds out the Rutgers targets at the event. Close to the new Rutgers staff, Bell spoke with Scout about where the Scarlet Knights stand after he camped with the program at a June satellite event.
