Rutgers Offers Tyler Lee’s Chance Amie
East Texas' highest-rated quarterback added to his double-digit number of Division I FBS scholarship offers on Thursday evening.
Tyler Lee 2018 signal-caller Chance Amie reported an offer from Rutgers, he announced on Twitter.
Rutgers is the 11th FBS offer for Amie (6-3, 190), who also holds invitations from Arkansas State, Bowling Green, Central Florida, Colorado State, Iowa State, Southern Miss, Syracuse, Tulane, and Virginia.
Amie is also the first East Texas recruit in the 2018 class to be targeted by Rutgers.
Rutgers, located in Piscataway, N.J., is a member of the Big Ten Conference. The Scarlet Knights, who are coached by Chris Ash, finished 2016 with a 2-10 overall record -- winless (0-9) in conference in play.
Amie completed 97 of 180 passes for 1,556 yards and 10 touchdowns to seven interceptions in his first full season as a starter in 2016. He carried the ball 183 times for a net of 1,265 yards and scored 17 touchdowns.
Lee went 2-8 last season, but not due to a shortage of offense.
Two losses occurred in spite of the offense scoring more than 50 points. Four losses were decided by one possession.
Amie, like all college football prospects currently in their junior year of high school, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in February.
