Not long after Rutgers capped off its 2021 recruiting class, its 2022 class landed a coveted prospect.
Offensive lineman Taj White from Hudson Catholic announced on Twitter Wednesday night that he had committed to the Scarlet Knights, becoming the fourth member of Rutgers’ 2022 recruiting class.
Landing White is a big victory for Greg Schiano and the Rutgers coaching staff.
The 6-foot-5, 270-pound White had offers from Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Maryland, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Syracuse, among others.
White is rated a three-star prospect by 247Sports’ Composite rankings and the No. 18 recruit in New Jersey.
Competing in the Big Ten requires a strong offensive line, and White’s addition should go a long way toward Rutgers achieving that.
White joins wide receivers JoJo Bermudez from Cedar Creek High School in South Jersey, Rashad Rochelle from Springfield High School in Illinois and Addison Copeland from Western New York Maritime Charter School to make up Rutgers’ 2022 class so far.
