TE Nwosu Impresses at Rutgers Camp

Duval High (Lanham, Md.) tight end Daniel Nwosu spent Tuesday camping at Rutgers, and working out under the watchful eyes of tight ends coach Brian Angelichio. After leaving the camp, Nwosu spoke to ScarletReport.com about his recruitment, whether he earned an offer and what he thought of his camp performance.

Rutgers' search for a tight end brought a few intriguing prospects to camp this week, including Duval High (Lanham, Md.) High's Daniel Nwosu.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Nwosu spent Tuesday working with tight ends coach Brian Angelichio in an effort to show he is worthy of an offer.

"It went well," Nwosu said. "They said I was probably the best at my position. I was catching every ball, every pass that came to me. They said I did really well. That's what the receivers coach and tight ends coach said to me."

Nwosu demonstrated soft hands and a willingness to be physical in his blocking.

"I think I showed them that I'm an explosive blocker," Nwosu said. "I showed I can catch the ball and have soft hands and make a lot of plays on the ball."

Nwosu has come onto Rutgers' radar recently, and made a last-minute decision to travel 3½ hours north to camp and see the campus.

"(Assistant) coach (P.J.) Fleck was telling me that I had a great day and they're going to talk about me when they get together and then he would call me back," Nwosu said. "I really feel I did real well. I felt I was pretty much on top of my game."

After finishing the afternoon session of the camp, Nwosu had a chance to look around the facilities.

"We saw the weight room, and that was nice," Nwosu said. "They have a track in there so they can practice their 40 (yard dash) in there. It's real nice."

Next on Nwosu's agenda is a July trip to Virginia.
