Rutgers added a major piece to its offense late Wednesday night.

The Scarlet Knights earned a commitment from JaQuae Jackson, who was one of the most highly-recruited wide receivers still available in the transfer portal. Jackson had offers from programs like Miami, Texas A&M and Michigan State.

Jackson is transferring from California University (PA) where he was a Division II All-American last season.

Jackson made 77 catches for 1,178 yards and 13 touchdowns last season en route to All-America honors. The 2022 campaign was his best during his time at California University.

He spent 4 seasons with the Vulcans and was a contributor in 3 of them. In 2021, he caught 58 passes for 744 yards while starting all 10 games.

He becomes the 6th transfer to join Rutgers this offseason. He’s the 2nd wide receiver transfer to join the Scarlet Knights as they’re hoping to bolster their passing offense for 2023.

He’s listed at 6-foot-3, 175 pounds. He attended Serra Catholic High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Jackson was originally a member of the 2018 high school recruiting class. He has 1 year of eligibility remaining.
