"They're a good program that's building up," Nunez said about the Rutgers program. "The coaches are great guys and overall, it's a good school."
The 2009 Scarlet Knights' recruiting class has been very impressive racking up 19 total commits, including six four star prospects. Nunez likes the success the team has had on the recruiting front, but said he might be influenced by the number of defensive lineman they recruit.
"They have a lot of 2009 commitments, but they already have a few defensive lineman recruited," he said.
In 2008, Head Coach Greg Schiano recruited three star lineman Marquis Hamm, and in 2009 he's brought in three star d-lineman Andre Civil from Sheepshead Bay High School and Michael Larrow from Union Senior High School.
While he had a top five a while ago, Nunez said things have changed and he doesn't plan on making one until his football season starts. He said he didn't really have one at the time and was misunderstood.
He plans on making his final decision around midway through his football season and the three biggest factors in his decision will be playing time, the coaching style and academics. Nunez wants to make his decision during football season because he's still awaiting offers from schools like Michigan State and Tennessee.
Nunez doesn't have any visits scheduled for the summer. He's currently the No. 37-ranked prospect according to Scout.com's 2009 High School Football Rankings.
Knights Remain on Nunez's List
