Former Rutgers guard Justin Sofman visited Monmouth on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
“We spent a lot of time on campus and met all the players,” said Steve Sofman, Justin’s father. “We spent some great time with the coaches learning what’s in store for the program and their future, and also got a full tour of the campus, which is a beautiful campus. Justin thorougly enjoyed the visit.”
The 6-foot-4 Sofman previously visited Albany and plans to see Iona, Marist and Fairleigh Dickison next week.
A former Herald News All-Area pick from West Milford, Sofman decided to leave Rutgers after his freshman season and will have to sit out the 2008-09 season as per NCAA transfer regulations.
“We hope to have a decision by May 10,” Steve Sofman said.
