A visit, that Guerrier says, left him incredibly impressed.
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound running back had 18 carries for a team-high 122 yards, averaging 6.8 yards a carry in the season opener for Port Charlotte (Fort Myers, Florida) two weeks ago. According to 247Sports, he is a three-star recruit and the No. 95 running back in the nation.
The weekend visit allowed Guerrier to see campus but also experience Sunday’s season opener, a 24-7 win by Rutgers over Big Ten opponent Northwestern.
“So, my visit was nice. I loved the campus,” Guerrier told Rutgers Wire on Tuesday.
“I loved the energy. I loved the gameday environment. I loved how motivated the players were to play and I love how everybody was locked in, coaches included.
“The visit was nice and definitely somewhere I want to be.”
He held an offer from Louisville in addition to Bowling Green, South Dakota State and Tennessee Tech among others at the time of his commitment.
The visit this weekend left Guerrier “100” percent committed to Rutgers.
“Because they were showing me mad love and good energy and intentions,” Guerrier said.
“The way they’re all a family and have tight bonds.”
His official visit also left an impression from what he saw on the field. Rutgers played balanced offensively and was efficient, scoring three times in their opening three possessions to stake a 17-0 lead.
“I like the way the offense was run and they gave the running backs a good amount of touches,” Guerrier said.
When asked if he will be taking any more visits, Guerrier said that “I’m locked down, 100 percent.”
