South Jersey OL Korang Set to Camp At Rutgers

Rancocas Valley High (Mount Holly, N.J.) offensive lineman Ray Korang visited Rutgers last weekend, but it won't be the last time the 6-foot-8, 280-pounder gets on campus. Korang told he was going to camp at Rutgers in June, and he also detailed what he is hearing about a possible offer.

Rancocas Valley High (Mount Holly, N.J.) offensive tackle Ray Korang visited Rutgers for practice a week ago, and he left with the belief he has a chance to earn an offer from the Scarlet Knights in early June.

The 6-foot-8, 280-pound Korang, who made the visit with teammate (and lineman Dom Twitty) said he will attend Rutgers' lineman camp June 11 after his recruiting coach, Scarlet Knights defensive line coach Phil Galiano, told him about it.

"I talked with Phil Galiano, and he was the one that invited me and Dom to the camp," Korang said. "I could tell he was interested in me and Dom. I guess were gonna battle for an (offer)."

Korang's visit to Rutgers provided an up-close look at the program, and gave him the opportunity to speak with the coaching staff, and continue to build relationships.

He also paid close attention to the way offensive line coach Kyle Flood interacted with his unit.

"The practice was one of the most intense practices I've seen at any of the schools I've visited," Korang said. "I saw the offensive linemen doing cut block drills, and I want to get my line coach to implement them into our practice."

The only offensive lineman in the state to earn an offer from Rutgers is Long Branch High's Ryan Brodie. But could Korang be the next?

"They didn't say anything about an offer," Korang said, "but they're coming (to school) in May for two days to watch our practice."

Rutgers isn't the only Big East school showing Korang interest.

Louisville offered earlier this week and Temple also offered. Korang is also hearing from Connecticut, Syracuse, Boston College and Wisconsin, and is setting up visits.

"I have Syracuse this weekend, and after that I believe were going to take that weekend off," Korang said. "If we don't, it's fine with me. I'm lovin' it all."
