TV: 1-on-1 with OL Marquise Wright

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Marquise Wright is six months into a move to the offensive side of the ball and making strides for Rutgers in spring practice. Recruited and developed as a defensive tackle, Wright moved to guard during bowl practices and continues to adjust to offensive line.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- When redshirt freshman Marquise Wright was asked to move to offensive line, he was not a happy camper.

Recruited to play defensive tackle, Wright was not in the mix for playing time at the position and moved during bowl practices to guard. Initially unhappy, Wright's mind changed when he realized how good he could be at the position.

Rutgers found success in similar position changes -- starters Antwan Lowery, Taj Alexander and Andre Civil are converted defensive linemen -- and Wright wants to be next. Playing behind Lowery, Wright discussed lessons learned about the position and hopes to make an impact in training camp.
