Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic defensive end Jamaal Jones was most impressed with the level of commitment he saw from the coaches during his most recent visit. Was it enough to sway him to commit?
"That staff is extremely commited to what they are building at Rutgers," he said. "It's easy to see that."
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound rush had a great time while at Rutgers and felt that there is a lot of team chemistry between the players and coaches.
"You can just feel that these guys are together on trying to build a winner and I think they will."
Does that mean Jamaal favors Rutgers?
"They are definitely in my top two. I visit Purdue on Jan. 17 and right now I have no other visits set. I'm still hearing a lot from Iowa and Indiana, but I haven't set a visit up with either."
