OL Dennerlein Hearing from Rutgers

Northern Valley (Demarest, N.J.) offensive lineman Skylar Dennerlein entered Rutgers camp with three offers last month and is seeking a fourth from the Scarlet Knights. Dennerlein remains on the radar heading into training camp and discussed the latest in his recruitment with ScarletReport.com.

Northern Valley (Demarest, N.J.) offensive lineman Skylar Dennerlein is a two-time camper at Rutgers and has been hearing frequently from the school during the summer before his senior year.

Rutgers has limited offers out to offensive linemen in the state and Dennerlein hopes he showed enough at camp to earn one down the road.

"They're very interested," Dennerlein said. "They keep calling me here and there. My recruiting coach (Dave Cohen) calls me. It was great to see him [at camp]."

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound offensive lineman could play inside or out, but projects best as a guard at the FBS level. He worked closely with Rutgers line coach Damian Wroblewski at guard and said he feels very comfortable with the new Rutgers staff.

"It was a great camp," Dennerlein said. "[Wroblewski] is a great coach. I love him. I came to the camp last year too. It was a great experience both times. I had lots of fun."

Dennerlein built a relationship with head coach Kyle Flood during last year's camp, when Flood led positional drills with the offensive line as an assistant.

"I can see him being a head coach," Dennerlein said. "He's a really good guy. He coached my position last year and I learned a lot, so I think he's going to be really good for the head coach."

Teammate of top 2014 recruit Andrew Trumbetti, Dennerlein holds verbal scholarship offers from Buffalo, Florida International and Colgate.

"All I can really say is it's three great programs," Dennerlein said. "It's really an honor to be considered by them. Buffalo and FIU are both Division I schools that like me and Colgate has great academics. ... I like all of the coaches that are recruiting me a lot and it is a very humbling conversation to receive a scholarship offer"

Dennerlein said he has no leaders of his offers or timeframe for a decision.

The beginning of his senior year will be key as he tries to put out impressive film for the schools, like Rutgers, that have him on their radar.

"Nothing right now," Dennerlein said on a decision. "I want to keep trying to earn offers. I won't rush anything, but if something feels right, that's when I'll decide."
