Spotlight 2014: TE Luke Carrezola

The next in the Carrezola tight end line, 2014 Neshaminy (Langhorne, Pa.) prospect Luke Carrezola, visited Rutgers Friday and participated in the skills camp under the lights. Performing impressively, Carrezola spoke with after his visit about his camp experience and close relationship with the Scarlet Knights.

Family was already on the mind of Neshaminy (Langhorne, Pa.) 2014 tight end Luke Carrezola when he arrived at Rutgers for Friday's skills camp. His brother, Paul Carrezola, is a junior tight end in the program and the school is already very familiar for the next prospect in the family.

Carrezola participated in Friday night's skills camp and received positive feedback from the staff for his performance.

"I think it was a very good experience," Carrezola said. "I learned a lot. I think I did pretty well and I got a lot of good feedback. I went out there and tried to play at the best of my ability."

Carrezola worked closely with his brother's position coach, Darnell Dinkins, and left with a great impression of the new coaching staff at Rutgers.

"I like Coach Dinkins," Carrezola said. "He taught me a lot about my routes, my footsteps. He's a great coach.

"I like Rutgers It's a nice location, right by where I live. I like the coaching staff and Paul likes it a lot too. I have no problem with Rutgers at all. It' a great place."

The fact that his older brother plays at Rutgers will not be a major factor in his recruitment, he said. Though he likes Rutgers, following in his brother's footsteps is not a must for the 2014 prospect.

"Paul just reminds me to always go out there and just try your best," he said. "Sometimes it's about the simple stuff like that and to focus on the little things."

At 6-foot-3, 227 pounds, Carrezola is a prospect that can grow into the size needed for a Division I tight end.

With interest from Rutgers, Penn State, Temple, UCF, Northwestern, Pittsburgh and Boston College, Carrezola does not have any offers yet, but can expect his recruitment to heat up this summer.

"I haven't been worried about offers yet," he said. "[Rutgers] just told me that they liked my effort and they were pretty happy with me. They said to just keep working every day and that's what I'm going to do."

Carrezola will return to Rutgers at the end of the month to take part in the full camp program and spend more time with his brother, Dinkins and the rest of the Scarlet Knights. He also has plays to camp at Temple in July and may take unofficial visits to other programs in the area.
