Star QB Drops commitment from LSU to become a Scarlet Knight.
The LSU Tigers have lost the commitment of D.C. Jefferson, the #1 QB in the state of Florida. Jefferson, who had committed to play for Coach Schiano over the summer, had a change of mind and committed to LSU in late October only to rejoin the Scarlet Knights 2008 recruiting class this week. Jefferson stands at 6-6.5 feet and 241 lbs. and is a star for Winter Haven HS in Winter Haven, Florida. This verbal commit is huge for Rutgers---as long as he doesn't change his mind again. The Scarlet Knights have also received verbal commitments from three other players in the past several days. They are Defensive End Marquis Hamm of New Brunswick, NJ, Athelete/Quarterback Wayne Warren of Salisbury, MD and Wider Receiver Morgan Carter of Woodbridge, VA. Hamm is a 6-4, 220 lb. DE from nearby New Brunswick High. Warren stands at 6 foot 1 and is a dual-threat athlete/quarterback. Carter is a Wide Receiver who stands at 6 foot 4, who turned down Michigan State and Connecticut among others to join the Scarlet Knights. With the recent verbal commitments, Rutgers has a solid 2008 recruiting class of 12 players that clearly addresses some of the team needs on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.
