Tyler Hayek is the latest Rutgers player to hit the transfer portal, the wide receiver making the move to transfer from the Scarlet Knights official on Friday night.
The redshirt sophomore has played in 18 games during his three years at Rutgers, all on special teams. He did not play in 2020.
In high school, Hayek was a three-star recruit and the No. 43 player in the nation according to 247Sports. A star athlete at Wayne Hills in New Jersey, he was a commit to former Rutgers head coach Chris Ash.

Last week, Rutgers running back Kay’Ron Adams, second on the team in rushing yardage last season, announced that he will enter the transfer portal. He ended up committing to UMass this week.
His brother, Hunter Hayek, is a junior wide receiver at Rutgers. He has 11 catches for 79 yards over 27 games in his three seasons with the program.
