Rutgers by Birm -- Lettermen Row

Less than a week after decommitting from Syracuse, Wayne (N.J.) DePaul Catholic three-star EDGE Q’yaeir Price elected to stay in New Jersey and play for Rutgers.

Price is in Piscataway on Saturday for the Scarlet Knights game against Wisconsin.

Price decommitted from the Orange on Monday. He was the second highest-commit in the Syracuse recruiting class.

“I want to thank Syracuse University and its coaching staff for giving me an opportunity to play at a high level,” Price tweeted. “After talking to my coaches and family this is the best decision for me. I have decided to decommit and open my recruitment.”

According to NJ.com, Q’yaeir Price leads DePaul Catholic with 51 tackles with an otherworldly 25 tackles for loss and 11 sacks.

His dominant performance helped DePaul Catholic finish 7-2 in the regular season.

Q’yaeir Price is the 15th commit in the class for Rutgers

Rutgers entered Saturday with the 32nd-best recruiting class in the On3 Consensus Team Recruiting Ranking.

Q’yaeir Price will join Delran (N.J.) Delran three-star Kenny Fletcher and Leo (Ind.) Leo Junior/Senior three-star D.J. Allen as the EDGE commits for the Scarlet Knights.

Brooklyn (N.Y) Erasmus Hall four-star linebacker Moses Walker is the top recruit of the group in the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. Walker is the No. 185 recruit in the class, with Princeton (N.J.) Hun School four-star offensive tackle Jacob Allen just behind him at No. 195.

Price is Rutgers’ first commit since Hillsborough (N.J.) Hillsborough three-star cornerback Thomas Amankwaa on Sept. 20.
