OL Korang Camping at Rutgers

Rancocas Valley High (Mount Holly, N.J.) offensive tackle Ray Korang is getting ready to make the rounds on the camp circuit and one stop will be in Piscataway, N.J. The 6-foot-8, 300-pound Korang spoke to ScarletReport.com about his recruitment, whether he thinks he is closing to adding more offers and his timeline for making a decision.

While many high school juniors are readying to hit the camp circuit and tour campuses, Rancocas Valley High (Mount Holly, N.J.) offensive tackle Ray Korang is in a much different situation.

School doesn't end until June 19, which cuts markedly into his camp schedule.

"We're in there for a while, which stinks because there's all these other camps going on during our school," Korang said. "It's right around finals, so it's not like we can leave."

However, one school that will get an up-close look at what the 6-foot-8, 300-pound Korang can do on the field is Rutgers, where he will camp this month in hopes of earning an offer.

"I just want to outperform everyone," Korgan said. "That's kinda what I want to do."

The low-keyed Korang said he gets "a couple messages here and there, and keeps in touch" with Rutgers assistant coach Phil Galiano on a regular basis.

"He likes my size," Korang said. "He wants to see me move at camp when I go up there."

Korang added 20 pounds during the offseason as his frame continues to fill out. He holds offers from Louisville and Temple and is also getting interest from a Big Ten schools.

"I think Wisconsin is pretty close (to offering)," he said. "I've been talking with their coach."

Being new to the recruiting process and just now starting to get guidance for how to approach it has hampered Korang a little bit.

"I don't really know what to expect because we didn't have anybody before getting looked at," Korang said. "We didn't have a coaching staff helping out (before this one), so we don't really know what to expect."

The only other camp Korang is set to attend is Notre Dame, which is June 23, but it will be a while before he makes a decision.

"I'm probably going to hold my breath for a while," he said. "I don't want to jump a school (quickly)."
