Jonathan Pollock began his collegiate career early, but he apparently won’t continue it where it started.
After multiple media outlets had reported it, nj.com confirmed through Pollock’s father that his son has decided to transfer away from Chris Ash‘s football program. Pollock had committed to former head coach Kyle Flood, and remained committed after a conversation with Flood’s replacement, Chris Ash.
Now, though, he’s gone.
“He’s literally on a 6 o’clock flight out [of] there [Thursday],” Al Pollock told the website. “He loves Rutgers. He loves Chris. He loves his teammates. He’s going to miss them. He was committed there for a year and a half and he loved his time there.
“It just didn’t work out.”
Pollock was a three-star member of the Scarlet Knights’ 2016 recruiting class. He was an early enrollee who participated in spring practice a couple of months ago.
In addition to RU, Pollock held offers from, among others, Indiana, Mississippi State, North Carolina, SMU and USF.
