Justise Hairston (RB, 6'0"-210lbs) from New Britain High School in New Britain, Connecticut committed to Rutgers approximately a month ago. At that time, it was stated that he would be enrolling for the spring 2003 semester. Tonight, he informed us that due to the timing of documents to the NCAA Clearinghouse, he will not be enrolling into Rutgers until this Fall.
He assured me that he was fully qualified with the necessary SAT scores and grades for eligibility.
He stated that he will be visiting the Rutgers campus this weekend along with his former high school teammate and Rutgers commitment Marcus Mitchell (S, 6'1"-200lbs). He also stated that Mitchell should have the appropriate paperwork to allow him to enrolled for this semester. For both players, Rutgers will be the only visit that they will be taking before signing their national letters of intent on February 5th.
