PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers' secondary was under siege in 2013 because of its extreme youth, but the byproduct is a much more experienced secondary in 2014, and cornerback Nadir Barwell spoke about it after Tuesday's practice.

Rutgers cornerback Nadir Barnwell played in 12 games as a freshman, including four starts, and it was a sometimes rocky go.
