On Sunday, Rutgers football received its fifth commitment of the week as 3-star wide receiver Sage Clawges announced he had pledged to the program. Per Bobby Deren’s interview with Clawges’ high school coach, he is reclassifying as part of the 2023 class and will enroll this summer.

The 6’4″, 185 pounder native of Morgantown, West Virginia was originally scheduled to take an official visit to Iowa this weekend. However, Rutgers got him to visit Piscataway instead. It worked out well as Clawges committed while on his official visit. In addition to Rutgers and Iowa, Clawges holds offers from Penn State, Syracuse, and UConn among others.

Clawges plays at St. Thomas More in Connecticut. He has a composite ranking per On3 which lists him as the No. 9 recruit in Connecticut, the No. 177 receiver in the country and No. 1209 recruit overall in the 2024 class.

His speed and athleticism will give Rutgers the option to use him as either a wide receiver or a defensive back in the future. However, the indication is Clawges will begin his career at safety.

Rutgers has had a busy week and a productive June on the recruiting trail. The Scarlet Knights received pledges from 3-star safety Noah Shaw, 3-star linebacker Samarian Robinson, 3-star EDGE Elijah King, 3-star athlete Antonio White and now Clawges all in the past few days.

With 18 commitments currently, the class remains ranked No. 23 nationally and No. 7 in the Big Ten per 247 Sports composite rankings. With spots in the 2024 class now at a premium, it will be interesting to see how the staff plans to finish out this recruiting cycle in the coming months.

Watch below for junior season highlights for Clawges.

    I was happy to see we finally get someone on the offensive side of the ball. Then this article says indications are he likely begin his career at safety not WR. Seems like Schiano is neglecting the offense.

      I don’t think that’s true. Three of their top four recruits are a RB, WR and QB. Nine of the 19 commits are on the offensive side of the ball. It’s also the first year of the offense. Once recruits see what the offense will be like under Ciarrocca, that will help too.

        Thanks Aaron. I must have been skewed by recent additions.
