Standout Red Bank Catholic defensive lineman Josh Klecko will take his football talents to Rutgers University in the fall.
Klecko, a Colts Neck resident, is among the many highly rated prospects to choose the Scarlet Knights on National Signing Day.
Klecko had a dominant season for the Casey's, posting 48 tackles and 8.5 sacks en route to being named the All-Shore Defensive Player of the Year. He helped lead RBC to a perfect 10-0 record and berth in the NJSIAA Non-Public Group 3 semifinal, where the Casey's were ousted by St. Joseph's Regional of Montvale.
The defensive tackle, 6'2", 260 lbs, is the son of former All-Pro New York Jet Joe Klecko and the brother of Dan Klecko, a former Temple standout and NFL veteran.
