The Garden (State) Strikes Back: Scarlet Knights Steal One of NYS Finest….

After weeks of sitting back and watching as their neighbors stock-piled blue-chipper upon blue-chipper, New Jersey struck back hard on Tuesday night, landing one of the top unsigned talents in the Empire State when 2009 NYS DI runner-up, Steven Rodrigues of Fox Lane High School in Section I, announced on his facebook that he had given a verbal commitment to Rutgers University. The landing of Rodrigues, the #8 prospect in New York’s senior class, marks the second consecutive year that Scarlet Knight Head Coach, Scott Goodale, has enticed a top-10 student-athlete from the N-Y to take his respective talent to the New Brunswick based campus. Last season, Goodale, now in his fourth year at the helm of the rising EIWA contender, won the sweepstakes for eventual 2010 NYS DI State Champion, Anthony Volpe…Now including the #4 national recruit, 3x NJ State Champion Andrew Campolattano, who for the time being is considered the exclusive property of the Scarlet Knight football program, Rodrigues becomes the second member of the class of 2011 to select Rutgers from among his many suitors. He joins 2010 New Jersey State placewinner (6th) Anthony Perrotti of West Essex Regional High School, who announced his college intentions in mid-October.
