Rutgers CB, former 4-star recruit, enters NCAA transfer portal
After one season at Rutgers, Alijah Clark will look at continuing his college football career elsewhere.
Clark tweeted Monday night that he is entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Entering the portal does not bind a player to go through with a transfer elsewhere, but Clark’s announcement, below, has the tone of a farewell note. He thanked Coach Greg Schiano for the opportunity.
