Rutgers received a commitment from Shane Rector, a 6-foot-1 point guard who attends South Kent (Conn.) High School.
“He has the ability to create for himself and others off the dribble,” South Kent coach Kelvin Jefferson said. “I think that’s what attracted Rutgers to him.”
Providence and Xavier were among the other suitors for Rector.
“I want to play basketball at the highest level,” Rector said, “and with Rutgers going to the Big Ten, that’s a great league right there.”
