Graves is Solid

Three-star prospect Shamar Graves did not make it in for his official visit to Connecticut this weekend.

"I had to cancel my visit with UConn," Shamar Graves said. "I am going to stay with Rutgers."

"The day before I was supposed to visit I had a sit down with my mom, my brother, my youth pastor, and my coach, and I decided that Rutgers was the best fit for me. I had already taken an un-official visit to UConn, and I just did not feel like I needed to go again."

At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds Graves played both ways for Woodbridge (N.J.), and he is looking forward to getting on the field as soon as possible for Rutgers.

"Rutgers provides me a great opportunity academically as well as athletically. I really feel like we could be a BCS contender next year, and that is the goal that the team has set for themselves, and it is a goal that I feel that I can help them accomplish."

"At Rutgers it was just a great environment. The athletic environment was tremendous. I am from New Jersey, and that is my home state school. It is close to my family and it is just Jersey," Graves exclaimed!
