The success of the Rutgers football team has opened in-roads in various areas especially recruiting. The Scarlet Knights have taken full advantage of this success with the best start to recruiting ever. This pass weekend the Scarlet Knights hosted one of the best DEs on the east coast, Robert Quinn, on an unofficial visit .
Robert Quinn is a 6'4"-255lbs physical specimen, who holds more than 15 offers. As his scouting reports states, he is "quick off the ball with great leverage off the ball showing fast hands getting a good punch into the offensive lineman and crashing into the backfield where he has solid reaction time towards the ballcarrier".
Beyond the fact that Rutgers is winning, why would a 4-star DE from South Carolina have this kind of interest in Rutgers? Quinn's mother grew up in Somerset. He still have family who live in the area. Therefore, he has a link to New Jersey. The success that the Scarlet Knights have enjoyed along with their style of defense has fueled this interest.
Please check out what he has to say about his recruitment and his trip to Rutgers in the video below.
