Cardinal O'Hara's Ted Field, a junior offensive lineman, committed Friday to play at Rutgers.

"I've always liked the family atmosphere at Rutgers," he said. "And the ability to play for a Big Ten championship is a great thing."

The 6-foot-5, 325-pound tackle, who played for Garnet Valley last season, took multiple unofficial visits to Rutgers in recent months.

"Coach [Kyle] Flood is one of the best," Field said. "Even before committing to the school, he and the other coaches make you feel like you're part of a family."
