Maryland OL to Camp at Rutgers

Archbishop Spalding (Severn, Md.) offensive lineman Shayne Sullivan is the next confirmed attendee for Rutgers' mid-June camp. Sullivan informed his head coach, Mike Whittles, of his intentions to camp Monday night. spoke with Whittles to break down Sullivan's skill-set and recruitment.

Shayne Sullivan, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound right tackle from Archbishop Spalding (Severn, Md.) will attend Rutgers' mid-June camp to continue making a name for himself. The rising senior picked up a verbal offer from Temple, but remains an under-the-radar recruit until he hits the camp circuit.

Archbishop Spalding head coach Mike Whittles told that Sullivan plans to camp at Rutgers and that that Scarlet Knights' coaching staff can expect a surprise when he hits the gridiron.

"He may be the best tackle I've ever coached here at Spaldung and I've been here for 13 years," Whittles said. "He has a great wingspan. The kid can just move."

Sullivan came into high school as a freshman weighing 140 pounds. In his three years at the football program, he is up to 285 pounds, but kept his speed, Whittles said.

"For a big guy, he moves pretty quick," Whittles said. "He has great feet. We really expect a lot out of him. It's really that speed and the feet that colleges like about him on film."

According to Whittles, Sullivan already camped at Marshall and has more camp plans, in addition to Rutgers, to help build on his Temple offer.

"He wants to go to the kind of school that runs the ball and not just a passing offense," Whittles said. "He likes attacking people. Wherever he ends up, he's going to make the someone that recruited him look like a genius."

Sullivan started at right tackle last season and projects as a tackle at the next level. After adding 145 pounds since his freshman year, he may not be done growing yet either.

"He had an absolutely outstanding year at right tackle and sometimes, I feel like if it aint broke, don't fix it," he said. "That's something we'll figure out in camp if we want to move him to left [tackle]."
