SOR caught up with Mike Rosario in this exclusive one-on-one interview with the Garden State sharpshooter.

Rosario, the first ever McDonald's All-American to be recruited by Rutgers talked about some of the most important things he assessed when making his final decision. At the top of his list was his appreciation for his state and state school and what better way to show that pride than by taking his multitude of talents to Rutgers.

"I'm a loyal guy to New Jersey," started Rosario. "... Just to even stay in New Jersey and to show the people why I love them and build Rutgers up to a great program ...," he continued.

While so much attention is given to talented Garden State prospects that leave New Jersey, perhaps not enough has been said of Rosario, who seemed intent on staying home and assisting in the resurrection of Rutgers Basketball.

SOR caught up with Rosario to discuss the issue of staying home, his thoughts on playing for legendary Coach Hurley, and much more, in this latest video interview.
