Kadeem Jack took an unofficial visit Monday to the State University of New Jersey.
The 6-foot-9 Jack tripped to Rutgers with his mother, Louisa Hall.
“Me and my mother had a good time,” he said by text. “We met with Mike Rice and took a tour of the school.”
Jack, a former Rice High School star, will prep at South Kent (Conn.) this season alongside 6-9 Derrick Randall, a Brooklyn native who recently made a verbal commitment to Rutgers for 2011.
Jack is also considering West Virginia, Miami and Arkansas and said he’s trying to set up an official to West Virginia.
On Saturday, Jack scored 11 of his 16 points after halftime as Queens beat The Bronx, 76-74, in OT in the Battle of the Boroughs title game.
