Rutgers football: Nikolai Bujnowski enters the transfer portal

After joining Rutgers football in early April, Nikolai Bujnowski announced over the weekend that he will not be joining the program.

In January, Bujnowski entered the transfer portal after two seasons at Virginia Tech. Bujnowski played for Paramus Catholic and then joined the Hokies as a Preferred Walk On (PWO) as part of their 2020 recruiting class.

Coming out of the portal in April, Bujnowski told Rutgers Wire that Boise State and Pittsburgh were also showing interest.
