'[Mike] Rice just did everything right'

Another sign that Mike Rice is off to a great start at Rutgers has surfaced.

Spefiicifically, this quote: "The other schools didn't do anything wrong, but coach Rice just did everything right."

Those are the words of Flora Macdonald Academy coach Derrick Bond (via Evan Daniels at Scout.com). They were an answer to a question about why Flora Macdonald Academy (that's a school in North Carolina, by the way) point guard Jerome Seagers committed to Rutgers over West Virginia, Cincinnati, DePaul, Arizona and Seton Hall this week.

Seagers is the fifth Class of 2011 prospect to pledge his allegiance to Rutgers since Aug. 1. He's now part of a recruiting class that could rank among the top 15 nationally on signing day next month, a part of a recruiting class that's already made Rutgers officials look wise for hiring Rice this past offseason.
