Green Talks Rutgers Skills Camp

Cranford (N.J.) athlete Reggie Green returned to Rutgers Friday night for a skills camp and hands-on work with the coaching staff. Up to eight verbal scholarship offers, Green discussed the latest in his recruitment and impressions of another up-close look at Rutgers.

Cranford (N.J.) athlete Reggie Green was one of a select few at the Rutgers camp to work on both sides of the ball with the coaching staff.

Being recruited as a safety and outside linebacker Hybrid, the talented 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect worked at safety and receiver with Rutgers under the lights at High Point Solutions Stadium.

"I liked doing both," Green said. "I like that Rutgers is giving me a chance on both sides. If I had to pick, I'd probably want to play offense, but I have no huge preference. I'm just trying to work hard on both sides of the ball."

Rutgers was the second school, following UMass, to verbally offer Green a scholarship. Since the offseason coaching change, Green and Rutgers have been in steady contact.

"I'm feeling good [about Rutgers]," Green said. "I hadn't been there in a while, so coming back and competing felt good. I think I'm going to come back there soon. I know [linebackers coach Dave Cohen] wants me to come back just to see everything with him, so I might do that."

Green spent time working with Cohen, special teams coach Joe Rossi and offensive coordinator Dave Brock while camping Friday night at Rutgers.

"It was nice," Green said. "You always get to meet them when you're around, but we actually got coached by them and that's when you see how they really are. It was really good to be coached by them. It was really good for me because I got to work with the offensive coaches and the defensive coaches and kind of get a feel for everybody."

Green enjoyed the competition with other top prospects in the area, including childhood friend Anthony Cioffi of Dayton (Springfield, N.J.), who committed to Rutgers earlier this year. "There was great competition and it was good going against a lot of the guys that I know and the really good players from New Jersey. It was just a chance to get better."

Green said he would like to make a decision by the end of the summer and plans to visit Pittsburgh and Michigan State this month along with his return trip to Rutgers.
