In a stunning turn of events, four-star quarterback Artur Sitkowski has de-committed from the University of Miami. Shortly after, Sitkowski, born and raised in New Jersey, announced on his Twitter early Wednesday evening that he didn’t want to “…let the opportunity to play for [his] ‘hometown School’ slip past [him]” and officially committed to Rutgers.

Sitkowski also said that he flipped over to Rutgers because he believes in Coach Chris Ash’s program and that it’s been his dream to play for his home state.

Originally from Old Bridge, New Jersey, the 6’5, 215-pounder has been playing his senior year down at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida; a boarding school dedicated to helping its students prepare for next level in sports, especially football.

While Sitkowski has the measurements of a traditional pocket passer, his abilities show that he is so much more. He possesses great arm strength, throwing the ball into tight spaces where only his receivers can catch them. He has also shown to be very patient in the pocket, smart enough to buy enough time with his legs until he can get a second or third choice receiver open.

His timing and footwork are impeccable. He shows great technique in the pocket, with fluid motions ala Michael Vick.

He has also shown to be quite the speedster. He can read the option perfectly and has the speed to outrun defenders for long gains (and even touchdowns).

Ash and the Scarlet Knights should consider themselves so lucky for landing Sitkowski. As the new crown jewel of the 2018 recruiting class, he brings a new glimmer of hope for the future of Rutgers Football.

There’s an old saying in sports fandom; “If you’re a fan of a winning team, you’re a fan of the winning. If you’re a fan of the losing team, then you’re a fan of the team.” And as an NYCFC, Mets, Jets, Knicks, and Rutgers fan, I might as well have that quote tattooed on my back in big bold letters. Winning is not a sports culture I’m familiar with. I haven’t felt the sensation of seeing my team hoist a championship, make a deep playoff run, or even just qualify for a playoff spot since I became a sports fan eight years ago. I’ve felt disappointment, heartbreak, frustration, and even fits of rage cheering for these teams (special shout out to the Knicks for that last one). But I can say with pride that my faith in these teams hasn’t wavered through the years, and it never will! No matter how hard I try.
