While college football coaches are continuing to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, Greg Schiano continues to make some significant strides on the recruiting front. On Friday, the Scarlet Knights received their 11th pledge in the 2021 recruiting class.
Three-star wide receiver Brayden Fox, a native of Akron, Ohio, verbally committed to Rutgers on Friday. He made his announcement with a post on Twitter.
“All in…committed to Rutgers University,” Fox wrote.

According to 247Sports, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Fox is listed as one of the top 200 wide receivers in the 2021 class and is one of the top 50 prospects out of Ohio. He becomes the third receiver to commit to Rutgers.
Fox received a dozen offers during the recruiting cycle, picking Rutgers over Air Force, Army, Michigan State, Western Michigan, Ball State, Akron and Liberty, among others.
With Fox’s pledge, Rutgers now owns the fourth-ranked recruiting class in the B1G. The Scarlet Knights now ranked 11th nationally.
