So. Carolina RB talks about Rutgers visit

The recruitment of Irmo High (Columbia, S.C.) running back Mustafa Greene is in high gear, and it kicked off with his first official visit. Greene returned to Rutgers over the weekend, and discussed something he learned about the school that he previously did not know. He also talks about a relative newcomer to his recruitment, and just how serious things are with the new school.

When his football days are finished, Irmo High (Columbia, S.C.) running back Mustafa Greene wants to get into the world of business. Perhaps he will operate his own business, or at least move into the business sector.

So while he learned plenty about Rutgers during his official visit, one of the most important things was its alumnae in the business community.

"It has so many alums in the business world,'' said the 6-foot, 200-pound Greene, rated a four-star recruit by "I didn't know they had so many alumni in the business world. They said they can help students, and help find you a job after you leave.

"And there are (Rutgers) graduates in almost every big company, like Verizon and Home Depot.''

Greene , who has lived in South Carolina for six years, wasn't fazed by the weather conditions – rain, snow and wind – since he grew up in Brooklyn.

He also got a chance to return to his roots – well, a borough over – when the recruits were treated to dinner at the ESPN Zone in Times Square.

"We ate a lot,'' Greene said of the trip. "We got a tour of the school, went to ESPN Zone and had a good time. I got a chance to meet all the players.''

Did the trip surpass what Greene anticipated?

"I didn't know what to expect because it was my first visit,'' Greene said. "Hopefully, the others will be better or just like it. (When family asks), I will tell them it was a great visit for my first one.''

Now, Greene is focusing on his next trip, which is scheduled for this weekend to North Carolina State.

He said he is also lining up a January visit for North Carolina, and lately has been hearing a lot from Alabama.

"I've been speaking to (Alabama), and I'm going to take a visit there, too,'' said Greene, who was asked if had a leader. "Not really, but I do really like Rutgers.''
