Ready For The Next Step

Michael Larrow, residing from Union, NJ inked his name with Rutgers after letting it be known in June of his verbal commitment. With offers from Oregon, South Florida, Illinois, and Temple, Larrow decided that Rutgers was his final destination.

"The closeness to home and having my family be able to come see me play was important. I felt comfortable with coming here. The environment and coaches made Rutgers the right choice," stated Larrow.

Larrow kept in contact with fellow recruits throughout the process, including prospects such as Tom Savage, Aaron Hayward and Abdul Smith. They helped him gain perspective on the camaraderie within the class.

The recruiting process as a whole was enjoyable for the NJ product. "I really enjoyed the coaches coming into school, but sometimes it got stressful especially towards the end with schools coming after me."

Indeed, though his decision had been finalized during the early summer, several schools continued their pursuit of the Garden State lineman. The schools that continued recruiting Larrow until the very end included South Florida and Illinois.

"Right now I feel relieved. It's over and now I can concentrate on preparing for the next level," continued Larrow.

As for the next level Larrow sees himself, depending on how his body develops, as either DT or DE. One thing that Larrow wants Rutgers fans to know is with this being one of Rutgers' best classes ever he's come to RU with one goal in mind: to win a National Championship.
