The latest Rutgers football offer went out to Florida offensive lineman Jake Guarnera this week, a player with ties to the Big Ten university.
A class of 2024 offensive lineman from Ponte Vedra High School (Ponte Vedra, FL), Guarnera is a 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive lineman. Rutgers is his second Power Five offer and second offer from a Big Ten program.
Penn State football offered Guarnera earlier this year.
His three current offers now stand at Penn State, Rutgers and South Florida. The Bulls offered him in mid-May.
He also plays baseball where he pitches and also lines up at first base, third base, catcher and outfield.
Guarnera tweeted about the offer on Thursday morning, including his connection to Rutgers via his parents:

His father was Jim Guarnera, who played for Rutgers in the 1990s as a defensive lineman.
Last season as a freshman, the younger Guanera participated in the prestigious Football University Freshman All-American Bowl. The FBU bowl game features the top athletes in the nation who are coming off their first season of high school football.
