Quarterbacks are coming off the board fast in the Class of 2019, with nine signal-callers in the ESPN Jr300 having committed. On Saturday, Rutgers added its name to the list of schools that have a verbal from a junior quarterback, with local product Zamar Wise deciding to stay home.
Significance of impact: Rutgers continues to work to add offensive talent and playmaking ability to the program. The best way to make big gains on offense is to catch lightening in a bottle at the quarterback position. With two signal-callers already committed in the 2018 class, adding Wise early in 2019 continues to build the numbers at the position for future competition. Along with being a talented quarterback, Wise committing early is a chance for the Scarlet Knights staff to change a mass exodus out of state. Wise picking Rutgers over offers from Maryland, Missouri, Syracuse and Miami is a huge win for the staff.
