Another crystal ball prediction has come in for the scarlet knights earlier today. This crystal ball prediction is Jacob Allen. Allen is a 4-star offensive tackle in the 2022 recruiting class, according to 247 Sports. If Allen does commit to the scarlet knights, this would be huge. For Rutgers 2022 recruiting class, they already have a hand full of great recruits. Such as their top commit dual-threat quarterback Gavin Wimslatt.
I think Jacob Allen will be a great addition to the Scarlet Knights 2022 recruiting class. Allen is an effective lead-run blocker, and he can stall defenders from getting to the running back and move them farther away from where the running back is going. Also, he shows pretty fast speed for an offensive tackle. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rutgers switched him over to a defensive tackle. Because if you take a look at their 2022 recruiting class already, they have two offensive tackles committed, so it will definitely be surprising, to say the least.
Another way Jacob Allen helps this Rutgers offensive tackle core is by giving them more depth. Right now, Rutgers only has one backup for each offensive tackle position. As I said earlier, Rutgers already has two offensive tackle commits in their 2022 recruiting class, which gives them a lot more comfort when it comes to injuries on the offensive line.
I don’t know about you Rutgers fans, but I would start getting excited about the near future. Rutgers could potentially be playing in the 2022 Big Ten Championship if they can keep getting these recruits. A lot of credit goes to Rutgers defensive backs coach Fran Brown. Brown has already gotten the scarlet knights one 3-star, and three 4-star commits for the Scarlet Knights in their 2022 recruiting class.
