2023 College Recruiting - 3 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on April 1, 2022
Rutgers logo DL JaSire Peterson (Union City, NJ) commits to Rutgers  View Class

Peterson (6-4, 268) was an early commit to Rutgers in the 2023 class over a year ago, but he backed away to check out some other programs after getting a series of offers from Power Five schools. It looked like West Virginia might have been in a position to land Peterson, but another trip to Rutgers secured the in-state prospect for the Scarlet Knights. He is being listed by some as an offensive line prospect, but I think Peterson will be on the defensive line, likely on the interior.

JaSire Peterson's Player Grade: B
Rutgers logo RB Christopher Johnson (Fort Lauderdale, FL) commits to Rutgers  View Class

Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano has always had a great affinity for prospects from Miami-Dade and Broward County in southern Florida. The kids are just tougher there. Johnson (5-11, 181) is a little underrated as far as I'm concerned, and he comes from a Dillard program that produces a lot of productive college players. He has great speed, running around a 10.7-second 100-meter dash. Johnson will have to get a little bigger and run between the tackles more. Right now, he is a little eager to break everything to the outside. But there's a lot of upside here and Johnson has a nice high ceiling.

Christopher Johnson's Player Grade: B-
Rutgers logo WR Yazeed Haynes (Lansdale, PA) commits to Rutgers  View Class

Haynes (6-1, 170) is a prospect who has gotten a lot of attention from major programs in the past month. Rutgers was one of a host of programs that extended scholarship offers to him in early March, and the Scarlet Knights have gotten the nod over West Virginia. Credit Rutgers' wide receivers coach, Tiquan Underwood, with grabbing this commit. Haynes is projected outside receiver who can high point the ball and move the chains. I want to see more from him as a gamebreaker, but as a consistent outside target, Haynes fits the bill.

Yazeed Haynes' Player Grade: C+
