Rutgers football is the latest Power Five offer for Maryland four-star edge Cortez Harris

Cortez Harris was offered by Rutgers football this week with the four-star edge rusher from Maryland pulling in another Big Ten offer.

Ranked the No. 197 recruit in the nation by ESPN, Harris is a 6-foot-3 and 210-pound defensive end from Riverdale Baptist (Upper Marlboro, Maryland). He is an explosive presence off the line and has untapped potential to develop at the next level.

On Monday night, Harris posted on his social media about his offer from Rutgers:


The Rutgers 2025 recruiting class is off to a solid start with three total commitments including two commitments in February. Two weeks ago, Talibi Kaba, a three-star linebacker from New Jersey (who had offers from Boston College, Duke and Georgia Tech) committed to Rutgers.
