Givens to Rutgers, maybe

Mike PettiganoCorrespondent IJune 14, 2016

It looks like former Penn State commit Darrell Givens is headed to Piscataway. Although ESPN first reported the potential move, the Star-Ledger brings up a problem for Rutgers that was the same problem for Penn State: Givens' grades.

"A person with knowledge of the team's thought process said that while the Scarlet Knights are pursuing the cornerback, there are "obstacles and hurdles to clear," the Star-Ledger article reported.

That leads me to wonder, just how bad are Givens' grades that even other schools are struggling to get him accepted? Rutgers is not a bad school. But this should raise a red flag on Givens.
