True corner backs (CBs) are difficult to find and good ones taller than 5'10" are even more rare. When Rutgers received the commitment of Al-Majid Hutchins, the Rutgers coaching staff found a gem. The 5'11"-180lbs CB looks to provide even more size, speed, and athleticism to the secondary.
This aggressive CB selected the Scarlet Knights because of his comfort level with the school, coaches, and players. His official visit only cemented his feelings for the rising program. The success of the 2006 Rutgers season convinced those around him of the wisdom of his early pledge. Other New Jersey standouts were also convinced of the current and future success of the program enough to join Hutchins. Like many, Hutchins regards the class as the best in Rutgers history.
Hutchins' passion for the game has fueled his preparation efforts, which finds him at Parisi's speed training to improve on his strength and speed. These workouts have already produced some dividend in strength gains, where he has increased his bench press from 240lbs for 5 reps to 255lbs for 8 reps. After he signs with Rutgers, he hopes to make even more gains as he will start to workout at the Rutgers facility.
As many of the Rutgers freshmen, he anticipates that these efforts are rewarded with playing time as a true freshman. He stated that ":there are about two or three CBs, I so feel that I have a chance to compete as a freshmen. I am looking forward to getting to school, getting to know everyone, and hopefully win a national championship".
On the National Signing Day, Hutchin will hold a news conference at 11:00AM to address the media and sign his Letter of Intent with Rutgers.
He will be among a number of Rutgers players who have been selected to play in the Governors' Bowl.
Finally, Hutchins' message to the Rutgers fans is "I am a winner who loves the game. I can not wait to get down there and win a few championships for them".
