However, many HS prospects have yet to take that final step and continue to inch closer to their college decision, the most important of their young lives thus far. The shrinking list of prospects listed below all have Rutgers on their short list of suitors. In an all-encapsulating perspective we try to bring everything together and provide a brief summary of the way things stand this moment.

Today's Recruiting Hot News

Notable Subtractions:

Chris Barney - Narrows his list with Miami (FL) likely to be his future destination.

Dario Arezzo - Committed to Cornell.

Kyle Wilson - Committed to Boise State.

Robin Lindor - The big lineman, who is better known for being a teammate of Chris Chancellor, is no longer receiving interest from Rutgers.

Baxter Grisby - One of a few FL prospects that were expected to make official visits to Rutgers this past weekend but did not.  Grisby is no longer receiving interest from Rutgers.

Alex Suber - Suber was an early Rutgers target.  The general rule is that if a prospect does not visit a school, the prospect will not attend said school.  Suber is no longer receiving interest from Rutgers.

Antwane Cox - Sources indicate that, although Cox did make the trip to Rutgers for an official visit, RU is no longer targeting the south Florida corner.


Notable Additions:

Kevin Haslam - Recently tripped to Georgia Tech with his family.  Left impressed with facilities and academics.  Will visit RU this weekend.  Listed Ga. Tech and S. Florida as his Top 2, before deciding whether he would visit Rutgers officially.

Garrett White/Gary Watts - Do the standouts from Miami Norland HS come as a pair?  One just recently committed ... Or does only one show up ... remains to be seen.
