Report: Rutgers starting safety planning to transfer
Rutgers’ secondary depth appears to be taking a hit.
Wednesday night, 247Sports reported that starting safety Jarrett Paul has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. He played in 11 games for the Scarlet Knights during the 2019 season, making eight starts as a sophomore. In 2018, he appeared in all 12 contests for Rutgers.
Last seaosn, Paul was credited with 44 tackles, which included 23 solo stops, and a pass break-up. The Scarlet Knights finished the season with a 2-10 record, failing to win a B1G contest.
In 2018, he had just one tackle.
Paul is a former 3-star recruit and was a member of Rutgers’ 2018 recruiting class. He picked the Scarlet Knights over scholarship offers from Virginia and Buffalo, but had opportunities to walk on at other programs.
Rutgers is scheduled to open the season on Oct. 24 on the road against Michigan State.
