Author Comments:

Visitor List for 1/21/2005.  The million dollar question is how many of these recruits have legitimate offers.  The easy answer would suggest that they all would - after all, why would a recruit go on a visit otherwise?  However, with the current recruiting class filling up, and with at least one spot being left open (Jerome Hayes), not all can have a scholarship offer from Rutgers.

One prospect that does have a Rutgers offer is Arthur Jones.  Jones was rumored to be "looking around" once the Orange got off to a shaky start this season.  A sour conclusion to the season, a coaching change, and a couple of de-commits later, has Jones taking a serious look at the Scarlet Knights program.
