6-foot-8 Offensive Tackle Will Visit Rutgers

One of the rising juniors in New Jersey is Rancocas Valley High (Mt. Holly, N.J.) offensive tackle Ray Korang, who holds one offer and is seeing increased interest from a number of schools, including Rutgers. Korang told ScarletReport.com he will be visiting Rutgers to watch a spring practice and meet the coaching staff. See what else he had to say.

Ray Korang's performances at combines, and word of his true size, are beginning to make the rounds, and it is no surprise interest is increasing when it comes to his recruitment.

The 6-foot-8, 285-pound Korang, who plays for Rancocas Valley High (Mt. Holly, N.J.), picked up a Temple offer last week and has visits lined up for Rutgers, Syracuse and Boston College in the coming weeks.

"Everyone wants to see my size, really," Korang said. "(At a combine), they didn't believe that I was 6-8, and that was what my coach was telling me. When I went to the Temple practice, there was not a single person taller there on the whole campus."

Miami and Connecticut are also recruiting Korang, but he is yet to set up a visit with either school.

Korang is heading to Syracuse and Boston College this weekend, and will be at Rutgers the following weekend.

"(Rutgers assistant coach) Phil Galiano has been talking to me on Facebook," Korang said. "We're probably going to go to campus (April 9). A friend of mine went there and just graduated from there, but as far as football, I don't know too much about it."

Last week Korang made his first visit to watch a spring practice. It came at Temple, and when he left, he received the first offer.

"It was my first one and I'm pretty excited," he said. "It came out of nowhere. I didn't see it coming. It caught me off guard. Temple was the first (spring practice) I've been to, and I'm just going to start basing things off of that and how they were compared to other schools."

Korang said more schools may be recruiting him ("My coach has a whole bunch of letters," he said) but he isn't sure which ones.

And before he can make a decision about a school's location or what type of program he desire, he knows more offers are needed.

However, academics are important, and he has an idea of the field he would like to enter. "I'd love to get a business degree," Korang said. "I've always liked working for myself. I think a business degree would be pretty cool."
