Rutgers grabs 11th commitment

Rutgers picked up its 11th commitment of the 2010 reccruiting class when a local product pulled the trigger. The player said Sunday he was going to commit the next day, and after calling coach Greg Schiano, he called to talk about what transpired.

Sayreville High (Parlin, N.J.) middle linebacker David Milewski concluded his hectic month-long recruitment by calling Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and giving a non-binding oral commitment to the Scarlet Knights.

Milewski is the 11 th member of Rutgers' 2010 recruiting class.

"I'm really excited,'' Milewski said. "I was nervous when I went to call coach. I talked to him for a while and he welcomed me to the family. He then passed the phone to the linebackers coach (Bob Fraser), who also welcomed me. They were excited I committed.''

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Milewski chose Rutgers over Monmouth and Connecticut. The Scarlet Knights began recruiting him hard in the last few weeks, and offered him a scholarship less than a week ago.

"It's almost like a whirlwind,'' Milewski said. "The whole season has just gone so fast. The season is almost over. We're in the playoffs, and the recruiting went so quick. "I'm happy I have a home. It is something very exciting.''

Milewski said Rutgers coach Greg Schiano invited him to Thursday's game against South Florida, but he will not attend because Sayreville plays in the first round of the state playoffs the next day.

The Bombers are the top seed in the Central Jersey Group IV playoffs and will host Middletown North.

"I appreciated it, but there's no way I'm going to go to a game on Thursday night and then play Friday,'' Milewski said. "I wouldn't do that to my team. We've worked too hard and I want to win this. I know what it's like to fall short. We lost in the championship game last year.''
