The Scarlet Knights have landed one of the best unsigned players in New Jersey.
On Friday, three-star receiver Famah Toure announced he had signed up with Rutgers.
Earlier in the week, Toure revealed he would end his recruitment and make a decision. The Irvington High School product took to Twitter Friday night to make it official.
The 6-foot-3 wide receiver is currently ranked 17th in New Jersey, according to 247Sports. He is the third-highest-ranked receiver in the state and the fourth-highest-ranked player yet to be signed. Toure is also ranked 134th wide receiver in the country.
Touré made an official visit to Rutgers on June 21, four days after his visit to Illinois. Over the past month, it has become clear that Touré will decide between the Scarlet Knights and the Illini. Temple was considered his third choice but sat far in the rearview mirror. In total, Touré held 15 offers from Ole Miss, Syracuse, Pitt and Boston College.
The coaching staff continues to work as a whole to get the job done on the recruiting front. Wide receivers coach Damiere Shaw and defensive line coach Marquise Watson were the main leaders when it came to recruiting Toure.
The Scarlet Knights add another Touré brother with this signing. Famah’s brother, Mohamed Toure, is currently a junior at Rutgers. He appeared in all 13 games for the Scarlet Knights last season, totaling 51 tackles and a team-leading 4.5 sacks.
Rutgers have been busy recruiting outside of New Jersey, but still hold commitments of four players in the top 30. JaSire Peterson and John Stone are interior offensive linemen currently ranked in the top 15.
Toure now joins Dylan Braithwaite and Jesse Ofurie as wide receiver commits in the Class of 2023. Overall, Toure is the 16th commitment Schiano and the Scarlet Knights have landed. This class for Rutgers is currently ranked 38th in the nation, according to 247 composite rankings, and 10th in the Big Ten.
