Washington, DC - New Jersey defensive tackle Eric Wiafe is enjoying having the chance to bond with fellow Rutgers' commits at the Chesapeake Bowl, and is ready for the competition.

"There's a lot of competition here to go up against and a lot of Rutgers guys," but one important person is missing he noted. "Sebastian Joseph couldn't make it because he is injured, but we have already built a great bond."

Coach Flood and company already have expectations for the beast lineman."I am going to be playing defensive end, and focused on getting off the edge with speed and getting the quarterback."

Speed; however, remains his main focus during the offseason. "I used to be slow and run like a 4.9, now I am down to a 4.82, and I am happy with that speed."

Wiafe has visited Rutgers numerous times, but has not taken his official visit yet. He plans to do so in February. "I have been to Rutgers three or four times, but for the official I am looking forward to getting closer to the coaches and talking to Coach Flood personally and meeting the players."

Wiafe is very impressed with what Coach Flood has done in his first year as head coach of the Scarlet Knights. "To finish off 9-3 his first season as head coach is a great accomplishment."

Wiafe will join a handful of Rutgers commits on the field Saturday in the annual Chesapeake Bowl. Stay tuned for more.
