Rutgers coach Kyle Flood announced on Friday that former four-star recruit Miles Schuler, who was part of the last recruiting class put together by Greg Schiano, will be transferring to another BCS school. As a sophomore in 2012, the 5-foot-10 Schuler had five receptions for 71 yards and one rush for 25 yards.
Schuler addressed the situation to The Star-Ledger, saying there were no hard feelings between himself and the Scarlet Knights:
I just feel like I have a better future at a different school. Don’t get me wrong, I love Rutgers, I love the University, I love the team, I went through training camp and they’re going to do really well against Fresno State and have a great season this year.
I’m 100 percent going to another BCS school.
Coach Flood also chimed in, saying the he understood Schuler’s urge to look for a different role at another program:
He would have had a fairly significant role here. That role would have been a combination of kickoff return, it would have been a combination of punt block. It would have been a flyer on punt and kickoff coverage. A role on offense.
In the end, for Miles, it wasn’t really the role he was looking for. We discussed a couple different options. But he felt this was something he needed to do. I respect that and I wish him well.
While it’s currently unknown as to where Schuler will land, the report indicates that he may be looking to transfer to a school out west since he has family in California.
