Dylan Harper, younger brother of Scarlet Knights great Ron Harper Jr and son of NBA legend Ron Harper, has committed to Rutgers.

Harper chose the Knights over a myriad of programs including Duke, Kansas, Indiana and Auburn. At No. 2 in the country, previously No. 1 prior to the reclassification of Cooper Flagg, he’s the highest-rated commitment in program history.

Head coach Steve Pikiell put in the work on this one. If Harper was playing ball, Pikiell found a way to be there. Years of relationship building ultimately paid off once Harper made the commitment official on Wednesday.

He’s a high-level guard with good size who can thrive at the one or two spots on offense. There’s a lot of ways for him to score the ball and he’s also an excellent, heads-up rebounder from the perimeter.

He’ll join fellow five-star Ace Bailey and a trio of forwards to make Rutgers the No. 3 overall class in the country.
