South Jersey is among the key areas for Rutgers and Alex Silvestro is among the best players in that area. Silvestro was among the 10 prospects to visit the Rutgers campus on the weekend of December 8th. During the previous weekend, he visited South Florida and left the sunshine state impressed with the visit. But what were his thoughts of his visit to his state university - Rutgers?
From a scale of 1 to 10, Silvestro rated the visit a "10". He stated that "it was planned out well, with good food, the players were great, and the coaches were nice and down to earth guys". His host was another former South Jersey standout, Ryan D'Imperio. Since they were both from the same area, the two really got along well from the start.
Similar to many of the visitors to Rutgers, one of the highlights of the visit
was the trip to the ESPN Zone where he played video games and even played some
games against the coaches. The fact that the coaches played the games against
him really emphasized how down to earth they were and how open they were to
the players. Another highlight of the trip was a visit to one of the icons of
the Rutgers campus the Grease Trucks, where he enjoyed the fine cuisine.
He is deciding on which school he should take his next visit. Some of the possibilities are Tennessee, Michigan, Iowa, and Minnesota. For now, he is not sure which school to visit. But it is sure that Rutgers is definitely his leader. As for a decision, he stated that it could come before Christmas or shortly thereafter so stay tuned to Stateof Rutgers.com for the latest on Alex Silvestro and all of the news on the Rutgers recruiting effort.
