Tyler Devera, a Class of 2019 college football recruit, has de-committed from Rutgers University. He de-committed after his brother, Brendan, was dismissed from the program.

The older Devera, who was a linebacker on the team, along with safety K.J. Gray were kicked off the team for violating team rooms. The school said that they are not one of the eight Rutgers players, who are under investigation for credit card fraud.

Chris Ash, Scarlet Knights head coach, along with his coaching staff, reportedly reached out to the younger Devera and told him that they would still like for him to play for Rutgers.

The younger Devera de-committed from Rutgers on Thursday. According to NJ.com, he has more than 15 offers.

“Definitely what happened with my brother and everything,” the younger brother said. “He was a big factor into why I wanted to go there. None of the coaches have contacted me since he’s been removed from the team to even say we still want you or anything like that. They just kind of led me away and made me feel like I wasn’t wanted there.”

Devera is a three-star recruit, who is just weeks away from playing his senior season. He had committed to the Scarlet Knights just last month on June 21st.

He also reportedly has offers from Air Force, Buffalo, Kent State, Miami (Ohio), Old Dominion, UMass, and Western Michigan. According to College Football Talk, Boston College, Minnesota, and Penn State have also expressed interest.
