Running back Savon Huggins verbally commits to Rutgers

Savon Huggins could have gone almost anywhere in the country to play college football. Instead, he'll simply head south on the Turnpike. The standout running back from St. Peter's Prep, rated the state's No. 1 player by Rivals.com, announced he is Rutgers-bound at a press conference this afternoon at the library of his high school in Jersey City. The 6-0, 190-pounder had taken official visits to Notre Dame, national champion Auburn, Michigan State, North Carolina and Rutgers, with the latter two emerging as his finalists.
