Agudosi Concludes High School Career

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Rutgers wide receiver commit Carlton Agudosi had his high school football career come to an end when Franklin High School lost its season finale on Thanksgiving to Piscataway Township. Agudosi, who verbally committed to Rutgers in the spring, spoke about preparing for college football.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — The next time 6-foot-6 wide receiver Carlton Agudosi laces up his cleats for a meaningful football game, he expects it to be for Rutgers.

One of three receivers verbally committed to the Scarlet Knights, Agudosi's high school career ended in a Thanksgiving rivalry game making the short trip from Franklin High School (Somerset, N.J.) to Rutgers his next football stop.

"It's exciting to know what my next step is," Agudosi said. "I can't wait for my next game to be as a Rutgers Scarlet Knight. I can't wait to start working out and learning everything I can to get ready."

Agudosi was the fourth 2012 prospect to verbally commit to Rutgers, doing so at a small ceremony at his high school. The three-star prospect has been open about needing to improve his academics to make it to Rutgers.

With football complete, Agudosi has even more time to focus on the classroom. Agudosi will be one of many commits and top prospects to officially visit Rutgers in the weeks leading up to a bowl game. For someone that goes to more home games than most fans, Agudosi is excited to see the program from a different perspective.

"I want to get to know my teammates more," he said. "I want to see more about the program. I've been around Rutgers for a long time, but the official visit is supposed to be totally different."

Since committing, Agudosi became friends with fellow incoming receivers Ruhann Peele and Leonte Carroo and spent a day at the Rutgers summer camp with quarterback Blake Rankin.

At the Rutgers 20-3 win over Cincinnati on Senior Day, Agudosi met future offensive linemen Chris Muller and Derrick Nelson for the first time.

"I liked both of those guys," Agudosi said. "We were all getting along and pumped up for a big win. Obviously the loss yesterday was really disappointing, but I'm excited to see them in a bowl game after last year."

Agudosi plans to stay in shape by playing on his high school basketball team. Franklin's season begins tomorrow where the 6-foot-6 Agudosi plays both center and wing because of his athleticism.
