After racking up greater than 70 tackles and over a dozen sacks during his Junior season, Al-Ghaffar Lane's stock quickly rose and Garden State and northeast High School football fans rapidly took note. SOR was on the sidelines this past weekend and caught up with Rutgers' newest Loyal Son.
Al-Ghaffar Lane (6-foot-3 and 200-pounds) recently gave Rutgers his verbal commitment, becoming the 12th such pledge of the 2006 class for the Scarlet Knights.
Lane, an athletic player that possesses an impressive burst off the edge was in action this past weekend as his Paterson Catholic Cougars defeated Garfield 47-0. After PC's 4th victory to open up the 2006 season - and 1st victory in league play - SOR caught up with one of New Jersey's top overall players.
