Rutgers has been recruiting a true freshman linebacker since March, and that’s with the hope of bringing him to New Jersey in the next few months.
After a three-year stint at Indiana, Kevin Whitehead, a junior linebacker for the Fighting Irish, decommitted from the Big Ten after the 2013 season.
He went to Ohio State, where he started all 13 games for the Buckeyes.
After an outstanding recruiting haul in 2014, Whitehead decided to play his final season at Rutgers and transfer.
He signed with Ohio State in January 2015 and went on to start 11 games for Ohio State.
During the 2014 season, Whiteheads father, Jim, signed with Rutgers in February of that year.
After his junior season, Jim signed with Michigan and became a full-time member of the Scarlet Knights coaching staff.
Whitehead’s arrival in New Jersey was the catalyst for the Rutgers football recruiting drive.
Whiteheads dad, Jim Whitehead , said on Monday that he hopes to bring his son back to Rutgers in the future.
In January, White heads to Ohio for his final time with the Scarlet Knight program.
Whitehead is expected to sign with the Buckeye program in the near future.
After three years in Bloomington, Ohio, WhiteHead has already earned a degree in communications from Ohio State and has been a fan favorite on the recruiting trail for years.
The Ohio State fan base is very passionate about Whiteheads football ability and experience, and he’ll certainly be a great addition to Rutgers football’s recruiting ranks.
