Rutgers running back Charles Snorweah has played his final game as a member of the Scarlet Knights, announcing that he’ll be leaving the program.
Snorweah made his announcement through an Instagram post. He will be a graduate transfer with one year of eligibility remaining and will be immediately available to play in 2019.
“First, I would like to thank Coach Kyle Flood and his staff for giving me the opportunity to compete here at The Birthplace of College Football and coach Ash and his staff for developing me into the man I am today,” Snorweah wrote on Instagram. “To my academic support staff and strength staff, thank you for the everlasting support and encouragement, and last but not least my brothers. Throughout this journey, we build amazing relationships that I’ll cherish and carry with me forever.
“With that being said, I’ll be utilizing my final year of eligibility elsewhere while studying towards a masters degree. This program has given me such an amazing four years, I’m so grateful for the experience and excited for what the future will hold.”
Snorweah played extraordinarily well in Rutgers’ Scarlet-White spring game earlier this month. However, with Raheem Blackshear and Isaih Pacheco ahead of him on the depth chart, the number of carries the senior would see would probably be minimal.
Last season, Snorweah played in seven games and had five carries for 23 yards. He has appeared in 15 career games for the Scarlet Knights.
Snorweah plans to find a landing spot to complete his college football career and pursue a graduate degree. There were no potential destinations mentioned.
