Rutgers’ future just got quite a bit brighter.
The Scarlet Knights’ men’s basketball team got a verbal commitment on Wednesday from Paul Mulcahy, a 3-star combo guard according to 247Sports.

Mulcahy ranks as the No. 171 player in the 2019 class and No. 7 player in the state of New Jersey. The 6-foot-4, 186-pound prospect is from Bayonne, N.J.
Mulcahy has 15 scholarship offers, including offers from Florida, Connecticut, Marquette and Xavier. The only Big Ten school that has offered him aside from Rutgers is Northwestern.
Jerry Carino, a writer for the Associated Press, believes Mulcahy is much more than what his rating projects him to be:

Rutgers’ 2019 class consists of solely Mulcahy. With his commitment alone, the Scarlet Knights own the country’s No. 25 class and the Big Ten’s No. 4 class according to 247Sports.
