Preview: Rutgers Passing Camp

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood will host his first passing camp Saturday as teams from around the region flock to Piscataway, N.J., and ScarletReport.com has the names you need to know for those attending the event.

The fields across the Busch Campus will be filled with burgeoning high school stars Saturday as coach Kyle Flood and his staff oversee the Rutgers Passing Camp, which will be filled with a day of instruction from the staff and 7-on-7 passing games.

A change in NCAA rules prohibit strict passing tournaments, but allow for college coaches to instruct in such passing camps,

For Flood and his staff, this will be the first chance many of them get to see and work with a multitude of New Jersey prospects, and the field is star-studded.

Attending the day-long camp will be a host of New Jersey powerhouse schools, as well as schools from New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania, and it is filled with prospects Rutgers is recruiting hard.
