Page Sets Return Visit to Rutgers

Pennington Prep (N.J.) offensive lineman Jordan Page was one of a handful of recruits on hand yesterday at the first of three Rutgers spring scrimmages. Page enjoyed a 1-on-1 meeting with coach Kyle Flood and discussed plans for a return visit to campus.

Pennington Prep (N.J.) offensive lineman Jordan Page enjoyed many aspects of his Saturday visit to Rutgers, but a 1-on-1 meeting with coach Kyle Flood made the trip special.

Page, who reclassified to 2013, holds a Temple offer, spoke positively of his interaction with Flood.

"We've spoken before, but it was a different atmosphere with him now being the head coach," Page said. "It was good to talk to him as the head coach now. He's running it all now."

Page has received some form of Rutgers interest for most of his high-school career, but the 2013 reclassification and a devotion to the weight room earned him an invitation to Rutgers camp this summer.

Page dropped from 320 pounds to 285 in the last year and is now building back up with lean weight. His improved physique, he said, has helped garner interest from many Division I schools.

"A lot of schools are interested now, especially Temple, who offered," Page said. "I like Rutgers a lot though. I'm excited to camp there. It's an opportunity for me to work with [offensive line coach Damian Wroblewski] and Coach Flood and try to earn an offer."

While at the scrimmage, Page enjoyed the atmosphere at a Rutgers practice.

"It was different from other visits because they had drills and scrimmages inside of the stadium," Page said. "It was different from practices that I've watched. They had a lot of families there, a lot of support. It was a nice setting and everything.

"It taught me that you need to be ready at all times. There are a lot of guys that can fill your spot. I saw a lineman (Betim Bujari) get hurt early and they put someone else right in and replaced him. There was no panic or anything. You just have to be ready."

In addition to Flood, Page spoke with Wroblewski, who also impressed him.

"You'd have two offensive line coaches pretty much with Coach Wrobo there with him," he said. "He's going to take care of the offensive line, but Flood's going to oversee everything."
