Jevon Tyree Commits To Rutgers Over UConn, Maryland, Georgia Tech

Jevon Tyree, the No. 49-ranked player at his position according to Rivals, committed to the Rutgers football program during Wednesday's National Signing Day 2012. Tyree, a three-star cornerback from South Brunswick, N.J., chose Rutgers over UConn, Maryland and Georgia Tech.

Tryee (5-foot-11, 170 pounds) was a late get for the Scarlet Knights and new head coach Kyle Flood, who's on pace to bring in Rutgers' greatest recruiting class ever. According to Tyree's Rivals' page, Rutgers had a low-interest rating in the defensive back, however, it seems that this special class helped persuade Tyree to head to Piscataway, N.J. It also might have helped that First-Team All-Big East wide receiver and former Scarlet Knight, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, is his cousin.

Currently, Rutgers has reeled in these defensive players: five-star defensive end Darius Hamilton (Ramsey, N.J.), four-star linebacker Quanzell Lambert (Sicklerville, N.J), three-star linebacker Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.) and three-star defensive lineman Julian Pinnix-Odrick (Montclair, N.J.).

Rutgers' recruiting class is currently ranked No. 23 overall by Rivals.
