A 6-1, 230-pound red-shirt sophomore and Michigan linebacker transfer, Drew Singletoncommitted to Rutgers head coach Chris Ash Sunday on the tail-end of this weekend's Rutgers official visit, his father, Dwayne, confirmed to NJ Advance Media first thing Sunday morning. However, he and his support system wanted to wait until Drew touched down in Ann Arbor to announce. The Singletons have been in talks with Rutgers almost since Singleton first announced he'd be moving on, meeting on at least two occasions prior to this weekend's official visit over the past month-and-a-half. At this point in his career, Singleton just wants to get on the field and make plays. So, picking Rutgers make sense, as the team can use all the play-makers it can get its hands on.
A four-star recruit out of Paramus Catholic in 2017, Singleton originally picked Michigan over almost 30 other schools. He arrived at Michigan after missing his senior year due to tearing his ACL. Although he flirted with the two-deep and starting roles over his two years in Ann Arbor, ultimately, he was moved around too much to settle into any one role. Rutgers remained one of his top schools throughout much of his initial recruitment. But this time around, Rutgers' odds were much better and the staff was able to seal the deal, adding an explosive component to its linebackers corps.
Currently a red-shirt freshman, Singleton has three years of eligibility remaining.
