Shuler is a junior and played wide receiver for the Scarlet Knights’ football team.
Last season, he caught five passes for 71 yards, one carry for 25 yards, one kickoff return for 17 yards and one punt return for 23 yards, according to scarletknights.com.
Rutgers is loaded at wide receiver, with junior Brandon Coleman returning and the emergence of several threats, including senior Quron Pratt and sophomore Leonte Carroo, of Edison.
The report didn’t indicate any possible transfer destination for Shuler.
Shuler was a football standout at Long Branch. In track and field, he won state titles in the 100 and 200 meters as a senior, and the 100-meter at the Meet of Champions as a junior. He also achieved high marks in the classroom.
His departure leaves offensive lineman Ryan Brodie as the only Long Branch representative on the Scarlet Knights football team. He will be a freshman this season.
