Rutgers gets commitment from transfer kicker out of Towson
Rutgers is adding even more depth to its kicking situation.
Monday, the Scarlet Knights received a commitment from Towson transfer kicker Eric Bernstein. He made his announcement with a post on Twitter. Bernstein made the decision to transfer after two seasons with the Tigers.
Huge thank you to @CoachScheier and @Coach_KBruno for welcoming me into their family. Also thank you to @OneOnOneNJNYPA @HKA_Tanalski and @CoachCahillShow for helping to get me this opportunity. Only the start! #chop #letsride ⚔️🛡🪓 pic.twitter.com/f0vCHbLp2v

A redshirt freshman, Bernstein will still have four years of eligibility to use in Piscataway. He joins a kicking competition that includes returning starter Valentino Ambrosio and Guy Fava.
Bernstein did not play during the 2019 season at Towson, his true freshman year with the program. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tigers elected not to participate in the fall or spring season at the FCS level.
Rutgers is coming off a 3-6 campaign in 2020 and will be entering the second season of Greg Schiano’s second stint with the program.
