Millis (Mass.) Hopedale two-way lineman Jon Baker received an offer Wednesday night from Rutgers University, his coach, Dale Olmstead, told ESPNBoston.com.

Rutgers becomes the fourth FBS school to extend an offer to the 2014 prospect, joining Boston College, UConn and UMass -- all three of which offered him last spring when he was a sophomore. Harvard and Yale have also offered from the FCS ranks, while Stanford, Michigan and Vanderbilt have expressed interest.

The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Baker is considered one of the top prospects in New England, and generally projects as a center in college. This past fall he registered 78 tackles with four sacks at defensive tackle to earn a spot on ESPNBoston.com's annual All-State team. He also earned Tri-Valley League Lineman of the Year honors for the second straight year, as the Mohawks made their second straight MIAA Division 4 playoff appearance.
