Despite seeing its head coach depart for the NFL last week, Rutgers was still able to sign one of the nation's top players in Don Bosco Prep defensive lineman Darius Hamilton.

The senior, ranked No. 69 in the ESPNU 150 and son of former New York Giant Keith Hamilton, announced his decision Tuesday on the same day that fellow Ironmen and senior wideout Leonte Carroo solidified his commitment to the Scarlet Knights program.

Hamilton and Carroo weren't the only players from the reigning POWERADE FAB 50 champs to sign with Division I programs. Click here to see where five other Ironmen will be playing next fall.
