Rutgers sends a recruit a picture of its DC as a bodybuilder and it’s as awkward as it sounds

We’ve seen some weird recruiting letters this offseason — mostly from Mississippi State — but the one Rutgers sent to three-star athlete Noah Brown of Sparta, N.J., might be the strangest letter we’ll see for a long time.

The Scarlet Knights sent Brown a letter containing a photo of a weightlifter with the head of defensive coordinator Dave Cohen photoshopped onto the top of the body.

Go ahead, marvel at this masterpiece.

It then added the pitch: “If you can’t beat me, join me! We want you … Come to Rutgers!!

Brown posted the picture on his Twitter feed, but had to remove it after getting some colorful comments. He did note that he enjoyed the picture and didn’t find it as creepy as the rest of us.

Even though this letter is a little corny, at least it stands out. Brown currently has 12 offers but this letter from his in-state school could give the Scarlet Knights the extra muscle it needs to land Brown's commitment.
