Top 2013 TE Breneman Enjoys Rutgers Visit

Top Class of 2013 tight end Adam Breneman took his second visit to Rutgers in four months. The Cedar Cliff High School (Camp Hill, Pa.) holds 10 verbal scholarship offers and has three visits on his plate for this week before his training camp begins.

Tight end Adam Breneman walked away from his second visit to Rutgers for a practice with an improved perception of the school.

Prior to the Cedar Cliff High School (Camp Hill, Pa.) star's visit, he held Rutgers in high regard, but said that he was very impressed with his experiences from today's training camp practice.

"[My visit] definitely improved how I feel about Rutgers," Breneman said. "It was a great visit. I got a lot more familiar with the school and what Rutgers is about. I was very impressed."

Breneman holds 10 verbal offers including Rutgers, Alabama, Notre Dame and Florida State.

Rutgers was one of the first schools to get involved with Breneman and he credits his relationship with tight ends coach Brian Angelicho for his strong interest in the program.

Angelicho, offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti and head coach Greg Schiano all spent time with Breneman during his visit with his family.

"It was a great visit," Breneman said. "I have a nice relationship building with everyone at Rutgers and had a good time out there. ... I got to spend some one-on-one time with Schiano. We talked for about an hour. I also spent a lot of time talking with Coach Angelicho and Coach Cignetti and talked about how I can fit into their system with the pro-style offense."

Breneman would like to attend a school where he can be a receiving threat at tight end. In his conversations with the Rutgers coaching staff, he said he feels like Rutgers gives him that chance.

"I will be used well and could play early," Breneman said. "I will definitely be a tight end there. I will sometimes split out and will be a receiving tight end."

While watching practice, Breneman said the energy level of assistant coaches like P.J. Fleck and Jeff Hafley caught his eye.

"I loved the practice and the intensity of it," he said. "Some of the coaches were so into it and they were running around with the team. I was really impressed by it.

"I definitely believe that it's a program on the rise. Coach Schiano is a great coach and it was exciting to listen to him. I feel good about where the program is going."

Breneman told that he will visit Penn State tomorrow after a stop at home. The Nittany Lions have not offered Breneman yet, but tomorrow is a likely opportunity for it.
