Success from the portal: Rutgers gets another huge addition, lands commitment from former Michigan DT
Greg Schiano is at it again. Not long after landing former Wisconsin wide receiver and kick returner Aron Cruickshank, the head coach was able to convince an ex-Michigan defensive tackle to commit to Rutgers.
On Monday, former Michigan defensive lineman Michael Dwumfour announced his commitment to the Scarlet Knights. He becomes the sixth player to commit to Rutgers from the transfer portal, and the third from a B1G team.
Dwumfour has spent the last four years at Michigan and will have one year of eligibility remaining. As a graduate transfer, he’ll be immediately available to play for the Scarlet Knights in the 2020 season.

Last season, Dwumfour played in 10 games, registering nine tackles and broke up two passes. His best season with the Wolverines came in 2018, when he finished the year with 21 tackles, three sacks and an interception.
In addition to Dwumfour and Cruickshank, Schiano has also landed transfers from Ireland Burke (DT, Boston College), Brendan White (ATH, Ohio State), Malik Barrow (DT, UCF) and Peyton Powell (QB, Baylor). The newly-appointed head coach at Rutgers has wasted no time in assembling his roster via the transfer portal.
Dwumfour is a native of Wayne, New Jersey.
