As the Rutgers
program improves its recruiting, they also improve the quality walk-ons that
they have joined the program. In the past few years, Rutgers
has had some quality walk-ons such as Gary Brackett (now in the NFL) and
During interviews of the
current group of juniors, we uncovered a potential walk-on. Rob Crudup (OL,
6'2"-295 4.9 forty) might have been overlooked by college recruiters but
will walk-on to Rutgers. Rob Crudup was on the recruiting lists of Syracuse, Virginia
Tech, Notre Dame among others. However, he was unable to secure a scholarship.
As a result, Rob Crudup will walk-on to Rutgers in an effort to earn a scholarship.
Although he did not receive
a scholarship offer, Crudup is a solid player with a
lot of upside. He is very athletic for a 295-pound man. He runs the forty yard
dash in 4.9 seconds and squats over 550lbs. At Rutgers,
he will probably redshirt and will play either guard
Below are some photos of Rob
Crudup, James Williams, and Eugene Monroe:
