Rutgers is getting closer to twenty commits with its 2021 class and there’s still seven months until the Early Signing Periord.
Greg Schiano landed another pledge on Friday, this time from three-star cornerback Steffan Johnson out of Venice, Florida. He’s the third prospect from the Sunshine State to commit to the Scarlet Knights in the class.
With Johnson’s pledge, Rutgers is now up to 18 commits in the 2021 cycle. He made his announcement with a post on Twitter.
