SIGNED: Defensive End Mike Tverdov is a Scarlet Knight

Union (N.J.) defensive end Mike Tverdov's National Letter of Intent is signed for Rutgers.

Projected Position – Defensive End

In His Words – “[Strength and conditioning coach Kenny Parker] was like half the reason I committed to that school in all honesty,” Tverdov said. “As far as taking care of you in the weight room and off the field, I can talk to him. I'm going to spend more time with him over the next four years than almost anyone. It's definitely good to have a guy like that with you.”

Scouting the Scarlet Knight – “Tverdov may not be the sexiest name on Rutgers' recruiting board, but he was a must-get. His brother played at Rutgers, he built a strong relationship with the coaching staff and keeping him home sends another message throughout the state. He will need two years of development to be ready physically, and to improve his technique, and that leaves three years of eligibility. He should be a solid contributor for those three years.” – Scout National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn.
