Jaelyne Matthews chooses Rutgers football over Georgia, Miami, and Tennessee

Offensive lineman Jaelyne Matthews from Toms River North in New Jersey made waves in the college football world on Tuesday when he announced his commitment to Rutgers. Despite having Georgia, Miami, and Tennessee as his final three options, Matthews surprised many by picking Rutgers, a school that was not initially in the running.

Standing at 6-foot-7 and weighing 337 pounds, Matthews is a formidable force on the field. He has been ranked as high as No. 93 player in the nation by ESPN and is considered one of the top 25 offensive tackles in the nation according to the On3 Industry Rankings. His selection to play in the Under Armour All-America Game further solidifies his status as a top high school football player.

Matthews’ commitment is a significant one for Rutgers, boosting their recruiting class which is already in the top 15 nationally. It follows commitments from two other four-star recruits in the past three days, demonstrating Rutgers’ ability to attract top talent. With Matthews on board, Rutgers now has six players committed from their home state for the 2025 class, making it a major turning point for their program and adding depth to their roster for upcoming seasons.
