One McCourty brother has made his recruiting decision, and the other will try to do the same by the end of the week.
Nanuet (N.Y.) St. Joseph safety/wideout Devin McCourty verbally committed to Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano during an in-home visit Monday night. Devin had another offer from New Hampshire, but Rutgers was the place.
“I’m excited,” said the 5-foot-8, 158-pound prospect. “Rutgers has been in on me from the beginning and the school, coaches and players are great. It is going to be a good place for me.”
McCourty had 16 receptions for 262 yards and three touchdowns along with 55 tackles and three interceptions last year.
Now the decision in the McCourty’s household switches to Devin’s twin brother, Jason McCourty. The two-star running back/cornerback said he would like to decide later this week ,maybe Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Boston College is visiting Tuesday. He has already made official visits to his two leaders - Rutgers and Boston College.
“It is down to Boston College and Rutgers,” the 5-foot-11, 158 pound Jason said. “It is a tough decision. I really don’t know at this point. I’m just going to have to sit down and do what is best.”
Devin said he wants Jason to do what is best for him.
“I want him to go where he feels right,” Devin said. “I told him, ‘Go the place you feel the best about and is the best for you.’ He will make a good decision.”
Monday night Jason was helping Devin celebrate his decision.
“It was awesome to be there,” Jason said. “I’m happy for him.”
