Rutgers received one of their best commitments of the class of 2014 today in safety Kiy Hester.

“blessed to say i jus committed to rutgers !!! #chopnation,” Hester tweeted.

“Huge in-state get,”’s recruiting analyst Matt Hladik told “For a while he was set on leaving New Jersey but the staff and [fellow Rutgers commit and DePaul teammate] Justin Nelson stayed on him and it paid great dividends.

“He is a fluid athlete, can do a lot at safety whether it is against the run or the pass. He has good size too, and can be utilized in a variety of ways.”

The DePaul Catholic product is rated a four-star recruit by both Rivals and Scout.

Hester is the 19th commit of the 2014 class.
