Jesse Cisco Commits to the Knights

Rutgers will look to continue their tradition of standout tight ends with the commitment of Jesse Cisco.

Rutgers has a tradition of producing good tight ends. Marco Battaglia and L.J. Smith are two examples of Rutgers contributions to the NFL. As a result of producing these players and their use of the tight end position, Rutgers has been able to attract players like Jeff Minemyer as a commitment for the 2006 class. These factors have helped the Scarlet Knights obtain their second tight end commitment for the class 2006 class - Jesse Cisco. This North Jersey product had strong interest from Penn State, North Carolina State, and Michigan State. had an opportunity to discuss Jesse Cisco's commitment with his mother. She stated that the family was impressed with the coaches and player interaction along with the team's recent success. The family has been paying a lot of attention to Rutgers recruiting on and was glad to see how the class was developing. The commitment of Jeff Minemyer was particularly interesting because he was a standout player at Jesse's position. During home visits and visits to the Rutgers campus, the staff discussed how they would utilize the talents of both players. This was another thing that impressed both Cisco and his parents. The fact that the school is 45 minutes away from the Cisco family home, along with Cisco cousin and best friend attending or going to attend the school were added bonuses. These factors led Jesse and his family to finalize his decision to commit and end his recruitment. Mrs. Cisco stated that "it is a great relief to have the process completed". A real bonus was having her son close to home.

Finally, Cisco will make his official visit this weekend and will not make any other visits.
