BREAKING NEWS: Biruta to stay at Rutgers

After meeting with Rutgers AD Tim Pernetti Thursday morning, basketball recruit Gilvydas Biruta elected to stay at Rutgers, according to Adam Zagoria of  Just last Saturday, Biruta listed five schools that he was considering attending next year after he requested a release from his LOI.  Maryland was one of the five schools that Biruta listed as a possibility.

Lots of story lines with this one.  How hard did Maryland go after Biruta?  We’ll probably never know since Biruta is staying at RU.  What did Pernetti tell Biruta in their meeting to convince him to stay?  Few Rutgers fans, if any, were expecting Biruta to be a Knight next year after he flat-out listed schools he wanted to attend other than Rutgers.  Did Pernetti give him a hint at who the new coach might be?  I hope we get some insight into that meeting at some point.

    First off-I don’t have facebook etc.-I am an old man
    w/o modern tech skills. I think we really could have used Biruta as MD. needs to get to a consistant of a Top 15 BBall and Football School. MD. has to put a priority in recruiting starting from the AD’s office.
    The School has so much to offer -location-conference-educational programs etc. – we need to bring in some super stars. If we just got our fair share of the DC-VA-MD top athletes we would be there but we are loosing too many.
