"I decided to attend Rutgers University," Abreu said. "I just felt real comfortable there. I think me an my family will be very comfortable there. I love my family and I need them close to help support me on and off the field. Rutgers is only 45 minutes away so that is what I wanted."
Abreu, a Union Hill HS standout, is the #6 ranked player in the state of New Jersey according to the StateofRutgers.com, and the top linebacker prospect in the Garden State. He is also a 4-star prospect (#9 nationally) according to Scout.com and becomes the 13th player to give Rutgers his verbal commitment for the current class.
Abreu, who received offers from many of the top programs around the nation, is an athletic prospect with impressive running ability that is able to cover lots of ground quickly. He has an unteachable nose for the ball, stays low on his tackles but perhaps his greatest attribute is his fluid lateral movement and quickness. Abreu also has an outstanding frame that will easily take on an additional 10-20 pounds of muscle.
