Last month, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Steve Pikiell and his staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Papa Kante.

Kante comes out of South Kent, Connecticut and is currently unrated by 247Sports. However, his recruiting profile is certainly trending up. The recruiting site lists him at 6-foot-10. He previously comes out of Senegal. Along with Rutgers, he also has offers from East Carolina, Georgia, and TCU among others.
Rutgers currently has no commitments in its 2023 recruiting class, but that isn’t necessarily surprising given the timing of the recruiting cycle. Still, fans are hoping Kante will change that with a commitment in the coming months. This is particularly true given the program’s recent success and upward trend on the recruiting trail over the last few years. Of course, we will have to wait and see if that ends up happening as much about Kante’s recruitment is still very much up in the air.
