Rutgers football offers four-star quarterback Bryce Jay Underwood, a member of the class of 2025

Bryce Jay Underwood pulled in an offer from Rutgers football this week, putting the Scarlet Knights in a steep competition for one of the best quarterback prospects in the nation.

A four-star recruit out of Belleville High School (Belleville, MI), Underwood is the No. 3 player in the nation in the 247Sports Composite. Last season, he was named the MaxPreps National Sophomore of the Year.

In 2022, Underwood passed for 2,762 yards and 37 touchdowns; he also rushed for 632 yards rushing and eight touchdowns.

Rutgers football joins a recruitment that includes the likes of Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Missouri, Notre Dame and Ohio State among others.

Underwood tweeted about the offer on Sunday night:


Rutgers is beginning to recruit Michigan more extensively. In the class of 2024, they landed four-star running back Gabriel Winowich, the second commit in this current recruiting class. They are also doing well with linebacker Montele Johnson, a three-star from Michigan.


Gabriel Winowich updates his recruitment: 'I’m absolutely still 100 percent committed...nothing that could change that'

Johnson holds Power Five offers from the likes of Boston College, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Missouri, Purdue, Rutgers and West Virginia among others.
