2015 Intro: TE Jimmy Schulz

Tight end Jimmy Schulz was one of three Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep prospects on campus at Rutgers over the weekend. Spending time with familiar Don Bosco faces, Schulz broke down his first visit to Piscataway as a college prospect.

Finding a comfort level at Rutgers was easy for tight end Jimmy Schulz during his Saturday visit. The 2015 tight end from Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep went with two teammates, and saw plenty of former Don Bosco faces on his trip.

Schulz sat with Rutgers tight ends coach Anthony Campanile in meetings. Campanile came to Rutgers two seasons ago after coaching at Don Bosco.

Schulz also spent time with former Don Bosco quarterback Mike Teel and teammates Daivon Ellison and Anthony Malaguti.

"I spent my time today with my teammates at Bosco," he said. "It was great to see coach Campanile. I know him pretty well since he used to coach at Bosco but left after my freshman year, so I didn't really get a chance to play for him. He's an unbelievable coach that gets the most out of his players and loves his players.

"Coach Teel is another Bosco guy on the staff, and he was great too."

Schulz received a tour of the football facilities, and enjoyed meetings with current Rutgers players and coaches.

"My visit went great," he said. "I was very impressed with Rutgers. The facilities were great, the stadium was great, but the thing that struck me most was how much the coaching staff cared. They didn't care about you just as a football player, but even more so as a person or a member of their family, and to me, that really hit home."

Schulz did not receive an offer from Rutgers, but hopes to return soon.

"[They] didn't say anything specific [about an offer]," Schulz said. "They said that we will be in touch in the future, so we'll just take it a step at a time, keep getting better every day, and we'll go from there."

Schulz visited Penn State Feb. 15 and is also hearing from Connecticut, Syracuse and Villanova.
