The Rutgers football coaching staff continues to put work on the recruiting trail and received their first defensive player commit of the 2020 recruiting class. The Scarlet Knights secured a verbal commitment from Nick Bags of DePaul Catholic Friday:
Rutgers was the first power five conference school (12 total) to offer Nick per 247sports, but he had other visits lined up including one to Virginia Tech next week he no longer plans to take. Boston College and Wake Forest also showed strong interest. At 6’3” and 280 pounds, Bags is a solid three-star prospect, the 32nd best in New Jersey for the 2020 class according to the 247 composite which includes other sources.
