Greg Schiano is gone as coach, but the Rutgers football program has kept its close recruiting ties to powerhouse Archbishop Wood.
Nick Arcidiacono, a 6-foot-4, 238-pound tight end, committed Thursday to play for the Scarlet Knights.
His brother, Brandon, a solid center for the Vikings, will leave for Rutgers on Sunday. Another member of Wood's class of 2012, running back Desmon Peoples, is set to begin his career in North Jersey.
"I wanted to continue playing with Brandon," Nick Arcidiacono said. "He talked highly about Rutgers. He wasn't pushing me, though. He wanted me to make my own decision."
Rutgers is coached by Kyle Flood, formerly in charge of the squad's offensive linemen.
