Thursday night proved to be a successful one for Rutgers football. The Scarlet Knights didn’t win a game.

But, they did get a win on the recruiting trail:

Tyreem Powell is a 6-foot-4 athlete recruit in the Class of 2020. According to 247Sports, Powell is rated as a 3-star prospect from Vineland, N.J.

Powell ranks as the No. 46 athlete in his class and No. 18 overall player from the state of New Jersey. He is also the highest-ranked recruit to commit to Rutgers for 2020.

A program has to start somewhere, and for first-year head coach Greg Schiano, he’s trying to get the right guys to commit to Rutgers from right at home.

There’s no better place to start than in your own backyard.
