Nash to Be 'Ambassador' of Rutgers Class

Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) three-star linebacker Myles Nash informed his team of intentions to play for Rutgers today at the end of camp. Nash went 1-on-1 with after his commitment to discuss his reasons and goals to recruit more to the program.

The work has just begun for Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) linebacker Myles Nash. Announcing his Rutgers commitment this morning to his teammates, Nash has high aspirations when it comes to recruiting more to the Class of 2013.

"I think I can be the ambassador of this class," Nash said. "I'm going to get some commits who went away and get them to come play with me at Rutgers. We're going to start something special here and I promise you the Rutgers nation will be with you 100 percent of the way. I'm not going to disappoint anybody."

Nash has a simple message to New Jersey stars looking elsewhere instead of at the home-state school.

"Come join us," Nash said. "We're going to get this thing right. We're going to win a championship. We're going to be undefeated if you all come join me here. These guys are going away from New Jersey making other teams great when they should play where they're from and make Jersey proud. Rutgers is a great place and I know people are going to see it. I'm going to make them see it."

Nash decided yesterday that he would commit to Rutgers, but waited until camp broke to inform his team and pump everyone up. After completing a 7-on-7, Nash asked his teammates to take a knee and delivered the news.

"This commitment definitely meant a lot," said Nash, who was between Rutgers and West Virginia. "This is the place to be. It's home. I was trying to wait until September, but I always said to myself that I wouldn't wait when it was the right time. Yesterday I Just knew. It felt right."

While at camp for four days, Nash bonded closely with the new staff, spent time with incoming freshman Quanzell Lambert and gave his mom a chance to meet the coaches.

"Just being here convinced me that it's where I have to be," Nash said. "I've been with the coaches and it's amazing. This is the right place. I can't wait to tell Quanzell. I can't wait to play right next to him as a Scarlet Knight."

Nash is the 11th solid verbal commitment in the Rutgers Class of 2013 and second of camp after Lake Mary (Fla.) tight end Taylor Marini committed last night.

He projects as an outside linebacker for the Scarlet Knights, but stars as the quarterback of Timber Creek.

Cousin of 2014 star receiver Adonis Jennings and close friend of uncommitted prospects like Dajaun Drennon and Cedar Creek quarterback Damon Mitchell, Nash hopes to help Rutgers coach Kyle Flood make a splash in his first year.
