Given time to sit, relax and think about things, the situation has gained clarity.
Aiken really likes Rutgers, and when considering which schools he would like to visit, there are only two he knows for sure.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Aiken isn't reacting to Rutgers because it is the first place he visited. He also went to Florida this summer and camped at Ohio State last season, but he experienced something different during his Rutgers trip.
"Now that I came back, it's still like, ‘Oh, I like those coaches,' " Aiken said. "I feel that they were really there for me. When I went to Florida, two days later I forgot I went to Florida. With Rutgers, I still like it a lot.
"With New Jersey, it wasn't even a visit. It was a camp. They gave me a tour, but I can only imagine how my actual visit would be. I actually didn't want to leave. I wanted to stay a couple extra days."
Chaminade Maddona's season begins Aug. 27 against Lely of Naples (Fla.), and Aiken is trying to work out visits during the early fall. He is talking to Rutgers receivers coach P.J. Fleck about dates to visit, and then will make decision.
"I'll definitely take some official visits," he said. "I'm hoping for a decision early in the season. I at least want to take a couple official visits. It won't be as late as signing day. I know that as a fact."
