Bermudez earned his Rutgers Football offer yesterday, but you can tell from the minute he got the offer he was excited about the potential in this new look Scarlet Knights program.

“I was going over F.A.M.I.LY., TRUST, CHOP with Coach Schiano before he offered me,” said Bermudez last night. “I learned about their culture on the phone call. Coach Fran [Brown] and Coach [Tiquan] Underwood were also on the call. He talked about always telling the truth and sacrificing for your brothers. My former head coach [Tim Watson] would teach us those same things in the classroom. He would teach me how to be a better person on the field and off the field.”

The South Jersey native is the third verbal commit in Rutgers' 2022 recruiting class and is currently ranked as a three-star prospect, as well as the No. 23 overall prospect in the state of New Jersey for his class.
