Oden Wanders No More: Commits to Rutgers

Spring Hill Raiders quarterback Tylin Oden, on the verge of a visit to Rutgers University in New Jersey, decided before he even went to announce his commitment.

The 6-foot-5, 180 pound senior had previously been committed to Lousville,

Instead, in 2016 he will now be a Scarlet Knight.

“I mean, with this recruitment and stuff, things happen within a blink of an eye. Based on what I’ve experienced myself, things just happen so fast and you never know when a slot could be taken or something like that,” he told the school. “So I just went ahead and set it in stone. I talked with my mom and my dad and they loved Rutgers and what they have to offer and everything. So I went ahead and did it.”

Oden, a dual-threat quarterback, is an ideal fit for the up-tempo spread offense run by Rutgers.

Spring Hill, still looking for a coach after Tom Turchetta resigned in December, went 3-7 last year while Oden threw 63-for-117 for 918 yards, 11 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He also ran for 561 yards TDs and 6 on 69 carries.

Signing day is next week, when it can become officially official. We will be on the lookout to see where other local athletes, such as Nate Johnson, who committed to Michigan but seemed open to Notre Dame, will go.
