High Level Recruit Decommits From Rutgers After Feeling Disrespected
New Milford Academy (Berlin, NY) Tight End Jordan Forchs has backed out of his verbal commitment from Rutgers University to go play in Indiana after his Official visit their past weekend.
According to NJ.com, Forchs who is a four star recruit signed financial aid papers in Indian which due to Big Ten rules means he is not allowed to attend any school within the Big Ten.
An NJ.com source claims the cause of the split was that the coach that recruited Fochs Rob Spence was fired in the middle of Forchs official visit. No one from Rutgers told him or his family about the firing and he had to find out from Twitter.
Also sources say that there was some type of disagreement that caused the Fuchs family to end their visit early before they got to have their scheduled meeting with Rutgers Head Coach Kyle Flood.
Fuchs Father Michael was quoted by NJ.com saying he felt disrespected and is disappointed that this incident will cause his son not to play close to home. “A little respect and common sense goes a long way, said Michael Fuchs, “I am very disappointed. I wanted my son to play in the NYC area.”
Jordan who originally went to Christ the King (Middle Village NY) before going to New Milford Academy for a semester says that neither he nor his family has spoken to Rutgers about the situation.
Rutgers and Indiana are within the same conference in the Big Ten, do not be surprised to see bad blood between the two teams.
