Reve Says Rutgers Visit On Tap

Miami Northwestern safety Jermaine Reve was impressive when he camped at Rutgers in June, and the Scarlet Knights apparently thought so as well. The 6-foot, 180-pound Reve told he would take an official visit to Rutgers, and added two other Big East schools he plans on visiting. But Reve is under a tighter schedule than many other recruits. Find out why inside.

Four months is usually an eternity in recruiting, but not in the case of Miami Northwester High safety Jermaine Reve.

In that time he will practice for and play a season, take recruiting trips and decide on a school, all with the plan to enroll in January at his college choice.

And with such a compact schedule, Reve spent plenty of time deciding which schools he wants to find out much more about, and Rutgers is on that list.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Reve knows of three official visits he plans to take, and the Scarlet Knights are on the list.

"I plan on making my visits during the school year, so I plan on talking to a lot of coaches in the fall," Reve said. "I haven't lined any up yet, but I know I want to visit Cincinnati for sure, and I want to visit Rutgers and I want to visit Syracuse.

"Those are three I really want to go to because I've never been to New York, I've never been to Cincinnati. I want to go there."

Syracuse and Cincinnati already offered, but the Scarlet Knights are yet to do so. That could change if Reve performs well in the first few weeks of the season, especially since he played well at Rutgers camp in June.

"I think my recruitment is going to stay quiet for a long time," Reve said. "I'm graduating early, in December, but I'm not really thinking about schools right now. I haven't been talking to anyone lately because I've been focusing on things at Northwestern."

Reve, whose commitment to Central Florida is considered a soft verbal, has pressure on him this season not only to perform in hopes of gaining more offers, but also because of more responsibility on the field.

"I'm the one making all the calls, and making the adjustments," he said. "The coaches have given me that role, and I'm a real vocal leader out there on the field this year.

"It's something I like because I'm the one helping our team do better, helping all of us do better. Of course, when something goes wrong, I'm the first one they end up looking at. I have to know what happened that went wrong. I have to know what happened on everything."
