Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano described his 5'8 160-pound wideout's ability.
"Tim has game-breaking speed," Schiano told reporters after Tuesday
afternoon's practice. "You saw it today."
Brown missed the first half of spring exercises due to academics. On
Tuesday, however, he showed glimpses of what Scarlet Knight fans have been
hearing since his senior season at Miami Northwestern HS and what they've
seen with their own eyes since the sunshine state star has been a Scarlet
Running back Kordell Young also engaged in limited drills for the first
time this spring.
Schiano said Young is progressing slowly, but on target for the regular
"We just had him do some 7-on-7, skeleton work," Schiano said. "It's the next step in his rehab. He won't play at all this spring. Today was the first step that he did some 7-on-7. He's right where he needs to be."
While backing up Ray Rice last season, Young suffered a torn ACL and LCL.
Schiano discussed Young's positive attitude throughout the strenuous
"Very good," Schiano said. "Kordell's a very upbeat guy. He looks at the
glass half full."
However, Schiano expressed mixed feelings about the practice.
"(It) kind of felt like Saturday, too many mistakes, not aggressive
enough," Schiano said. "It was better today."
One player that stood out in Schiano's eyes remains fullback Jack Corcoran, who continues to battle with Andres Morales.
"Corcoran's taken over," Schiano said. "He's played better, more

yet, but he's the best that we got now."
In the defensive backfield, Glen Lee and Joe Lefeged continue to battle
for the starting safety role.
"Neither one has taken it," Schiano said, referring to the possibility of
starting alongside FS Courtney Greene. "The position is there and neither

In Case You Missed It: Defensive tackle Pete Tverdov broke free on a San San Te field goal attempt, showing the impressive ability to break through and create havoc, blocking the would-be field goal.
Schiano on walk-on quarterback/wide receiver Andrew DePaola: "He's a loyal guy that has ice water in his veins. He doesn't get shaken by much. He's not going to be the fastest guy in the world, but he made some plays."
Play of the Day: Linebacker Blair Bines read the quarterback's count perfectly, dropping RB Joe Martinek for a loss. Tverdov's blocked
field goal places second.
