Nash Announces for Rutgers

Rutgers picked up an important commitment Wednesday when Timber Creek Regional High (Erial, N.J.) athlete Myles Nash announced at camp he committed to the Scarlet Knights.

Myles Nash long favored Rutgers, but took a step back in February when there was a coaching change.

After spending a few days around the program while camping this week, his feeling the program solidified again.

Nash, a 6-foot-4, 200-pounder from Timber Creek Regional High (Erial, N.J.), announced this morning he committed to the Scarlet Knights.

He is expected to play outside linebacker, although he will also play quarterback for Timber Creek this season.

Prior to his commitment, Nash said he was enjoying the experience.

"The coaches are spending a lot of time with me, I'm having fun," he said. "It's a good chance to do a lot of things and it's going to help me get better."

Nash spent time working at quarterback and linebacker during the camp, including a stint with linebackers coach Dave Cohen.

"Coach Cohen, he's definitely fired up," Nash said. "He's a character, but he's going to keep it real with you. (Quarterbacks) coach (Rob) Spence, he's more of a laid back coach. He'll tell you what you did wrong and make 100 percent sure you correct it. Both are good coaches and if I were to come [to Rutgers], I would definitely feel good in their hands."

Nash is the second Timber Creek player to commit to Rutgers in as many classes. Middle linebacker Quanzell Lambert enrolled at Rutgers this week, and spent time with Nash and class of 2014 receiver Adonis Jennings while at the camp.

"That was cool," Nash said. "Me and Adonis were just hanging out for a while. Quanzell really likes it up here. He's going to be really good for Rutgers and I would love to play with him again because he's a great teammate."
