Not only from the Scarlet Knights, but from any of the schools recruiting him.
Instead, it was Rutgers who was the first – and only – school to offer the 6-foot-3 Reddish a scholarship. He recently received the written offer.
"I was surprised by the offer,'' Reddish said. "I didn't know I would get one as a junior.''
Reddish is also jazzed by it.
"I think it is good,'' Reddish said. "Their school is (well-known), and the academics are really good. I'm pretty excited. I didn't know I would get an offer so soon.''
Reddish,w ho also plays safety, broke onto the scene with a strong junior season.
He made 30 catches for 763 yards, and added 11 touchdowns in proving to be one of the best players in Brooklyn. Defensively, he had 45 tackles, and intercepted two passes.
It not only caught the attention of the Scarlet Knights, but plenty of other programs.
"I'm going to the NIKE combine camp at Pittsburgh,'' Reddish said. "I'm going to the Rutgers camp in June, and also the Pittsburgh one, too. I wouldn't mind seeing Maryland.''
Reddish acknowledged the recruiting process is getting complex, and he is leaning on Fort Hamilton coach Vincent Laino for advice.
"He's telling me to wait and see who is sending me stuff, and then wait and make my choice,'' Reddish said. "I think I'm going to wait until after my senior season. I'll wait and see what other schools are going to come.''
