Ryan Blaszczyk (6'5" 290 pounds) has given Greg Schiano and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights a verbal commitment. 

Blaszczyk becomes the seventh prospect to pledge to Rutgers for the incoming class of 2005.

Rutgers' newest commit had received offers from Connecticut and Townson.  He was also receiving interest from Virginia and Maryland.

We had a chance to catch up with Ryan, who is currently vacationing in Virginia, to discuss his pledge.


Have you committed to Rutgers?

Yes I have.  I committed this past Friday, two days ago.


Did you attend Greg Schiano's Camp this summer?

Yes, I did this year.  I also attended Pen State's camp.


How were your performances?

I thought I did pretty well.  I don't remember any numbers, but Rutgers had been recruiting me already.  They had offered me before the camp.


Where does the staff envision you, in terms of position, during your years at Rutgers?

Yes, we've talked about this.  Definitely on the offensive side, at Guard.  We're going to score a lot of touchdowns!

Ryan was Second-Team All-Conference this past year.
