Rutgers Picks Up Penn State Linesman From West Deptford
A defensive linesman from West Deptford has changed his mind about attending Penn State and will instead play for Rutgers this fall.
Jamil Pollard will take advantage of the NCAA's sanctions against Penn State and will become the latest Nittany Lion to change schools without penalty according to the Courier-Post. Pollard will join the Scalett Knights next week.

The 6-foot-5, 280-pound defensive lineman, considered one of New Jersey's best high school prospects, made an "unofficial" visit to Rutgers last weekend according to Clyde Folsom, his high school coach. “We tried to encourage him to stay at Penn State for a lot of reasons, but he was really adamant about the opportunity to go to Rutgers. I think that’s where his heart had been even prior to a week ago," Folsom told the Courier-Post.
