It was a big weekend for Rutgers football as the Scarlet Knights hosted dozens of top players from their Big Ten footprint as well as their recruiting hotbeds.

Spring practice is always a busy time for recruiting, but Rutgers certainly made this a very busy week.

Visitors from this current recruiting class all the way to freshmen were on campus on Friday and Saturday for the spring practice. A number of local players from New Jersey programs including Bergen Catholic and DePaul were on hand. Players were also in from Long Island and even Ohio.

The class of 2023 is coming along for Rutgers football and includes four commits. Two top 10 players from New Jersey, four-star defensive lineman JaSire Peterson and three-star offensive lineman John Stone, headline this class. In addition, a pair of three-star skill players, Florida running back Christopher Johnson Jr. and wide receiver Yazeed Haynes of Pennsylvania, add some intriguing athleticism to the group.
