Standout offensive lineman Eric Shrive has been to the Rutgers campus numerous times so wanted to get more out of his trip to the Garden State for its Junior Day.

"It was a good Junior Day," Shrive said. "I've been there a few times. I knew the facilities, so I spent more time with the coaches and built relationships with the recruits. I really like how [the program] is progressing."

With the coaching staff, the five star prospect learned about the team and some of the schemes they run.

"We talked about the team," Shrive said. "We went over X's and O's with the O-line."

One of the recruit's the West Scranton, Pa. resident has become close with is four star quarterback Tom Savage out of Cardinal O'Hara High School. Savage has said Shrive will spend the night at his house and they will go to Rutgers spring game on April 19.

"We've built a good relationship," Shrive said about his friendship with Savage.

Shrive has already made a visit to Notre Dame and will visit Illinois on April 14.

Currently, the West Scranton High School lineman is on a visit with the Hurricanes in Miami.

"I got to see practice and tour the facilities," Shrive said.

Shrive has family in the area so he plans on staying in the Sunshine State and vacationing for the next few days until he visit's the Gators on Friday.

"My brother Jason and his fiancée Jennifer live down here so I'm going to vacation for the rest of the week and visit Florida on Friday," Shrive said.

The offers have been pouring in for one of the nation's best lineman as he has well over 20 scholarships with the most recent one coming from South Carolina.

"I don't know much about them right now so I'm going to have to do some research," Shrive said.

Shrive is the No. 3 rated offensive lineman according to Scout.com's 2009 High School Football Rankings.
