Top In-State QB Choses Rutgers
From the DelcoTimes
- Four months before he’ll begin summer camp at Cardinal O’Hara, quarterback Tom Savage has wrapped up the recruiting process.
According to a source, Savage (6-4, 231) decided Wednesday night to take his talents to Rutgers University, where he’ll play for coach Greg Schiano. The junior chose the Scarlet Knights from a list that included Georgia, Tennessee, Miami, Virginia, Pittsburgh, Michigan and Louisville.
Savage will hold a press conference at O’Hara Friday afternoon to formally announce his decision. Ranked as the No. 6 quarterback prospect in the country by rivals.com, Savage was unavailable for comment Wednesday night.
So, a good in-state talent from the outskirts of Philly has chosen to go play at Rutgers. But what really stings is the short list. It included teams all around Penn State but not Penn State.
But can you really blame him? He probably wants to play in the NFL and make some $ and knows that playing for Tuh State Penn is not the way to go.
I'm sure Happy Jack nation will start to say he wasn't Penn State material, the whole bit. But, let's get serious here for a moment. 2009 is going to be a total cluster of a season...I'm talking a 6-6 season with a potential bowl game....
But hey, at least we have Grad Rates!
