DL Twitty On Rutgers' Radar

Rancocas Valley High (Mount Holly, N.J.) defensive lineman Dom Twitty has made several trips to the Rutgers campus. He does not hold an offer from the Scarlet Knights, but he knows what he needs to show on the camp circuit and in his senior season to get that offer. Twitty spoke to ScarletReport.com about it.

Offers already came from Syracuse and Temple, but Rancocas Valley High (Mount Holly, N.J.) defensive lineman Dom Twitty said other schools, including Rutgers, are waiting to see him in camp before making a decision about an offer.

The 6-foot-2, 270-pound Twitty is also being recruited by a number Stanford, Connecticut and Pittsburgh.

"They say they want to see me at camps, and see me during my senior season.," Twitty said. "Temple and Syracuse already offered, and Pittsburgh may offer soon."

Twitty made 45 tackles and had seven sacks from his defensive end position last season, and he will play defensive end again as a senior.

However, in college Twitty believes he will play defensive tackle.

"I believe I'll be the most comfortable at defensive tackle in college because I'm not really that tall," he said. "I see a lot of tall defensive ends, 6-4 and taller, and I'm only 6-2."

The school Twitty knows the best is Rutgers, where he is a frequent visitor. He was also told by the Scarlet Knights' staff what he needs to do in the future to earn an offer.

"I've been to Rutgers at least five times, so I know a lot about it," he said. "They want to see explosion off the ball and using my hands more in the games."

Twitty also visited both schools that extended offers.

"I've been to Syracuse and Temple," he said. "I like Syracuse a lot. It reminds me of my home town. I like that a lot. It's really a nice place."

Twitty, along with offensive lineman and Rancocas Valley teammate Ray Korang, was invited to camp at Rutgers next month and is expected to attend.
