    Vincent Osazee, the No. 65 recruit in the class of 2026, according to Rivals, visited Rutgers on Saturday.

    The 6-8 combo guard of Reason Prep (MA) broke down the visit to ZAGSBLOG in an interview.

    “The visit was a great experience,” he said. “I got to meet all the coaching staff and also met the three guys that just committed there. The thing I liked the most though was the freedom coach [Steve] Pikiell gives his players and also the fan base they got over there.”

    In addition to the Scarlet Knights, he has visited High Point and holds offers from LSU, Arizona State, and NJIT, among others.

    Osazee’s recruitment is quickly picking up steam due to his early season success. He has been a double-double machine, averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds per game.

    UConn, Providence, Texas, Georgetown, Arkansas, Wake Forest, Auburn, Creighton, Iowa, Florida St. and NC State have all shown interest.

    His head coach, Timmance McKinney, believes this is just the start for the hybrid guard.

    “Vincent does a little bit of everything,” he said. “It’s not one thing he can’t do on the court. He’s what the game is today. A guy who can play multiple positions with his versatility and athleticism; he plays 1-5 for me. I think the sky is the limit, and I only say that because the kid is the hardest worker I [have] ever coached, not to mention the kid also has a 4.0 GPA.”

    While still early in the process Osazee has an idea of what he’s looking for in a program.

    “I’m looking for a coach that gives me freedom and lets me play my game,” he said.
