Even as the Rutgers football program adds transfers, Greg Schiano‘s new squad is losing them through the same process.
Friday evening, wide receiver Mohamed Jabbie announced on Twitter that he has decided to transfer from the Rutgers football team. Just a few hours later, teammate and offensive lineman Michael Maietti (pictured) used the same social-media platform to announce a similar decision.

Both Jabbie and Maietti will be leaving the Scarlet Knights as graduate transfers. The loss of the latter, though, will likely leave the biggest mark.
The past three seasons, Maietti has started 33 games at center for the Scarlet Knights. The New Jersey native earned Academic All-Big Ten honors each of the last three seasons.
Appearing in 27 games, Jabbie started 12 of those contests.
This past season, Jabbie set career-highs in catches (14), receiving yards (149) and receiving touchdowns (one). He will apparently finish his Rutgers football career with 182 yards and a touchdown on 18 receptions.
