PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- It is next man up at outside linebacker, and with Rutgers starter Quentin Gause down with a shoulder injury, Myles Nash feels ready to go. The red-shirt freshman out of Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek is three practices into his first-team role and discussed the tremendous opportunity after Tuesday's practice.
Myles Nash is ready to give his first-team spot back to Quentin Gause when health allows. But until then, the red-shirt freshman outside linebacker plans to take advantage of every first-team rep through the rest of spring.
Rutgers shut down Gause with a shoulder injury for the second half of spring camp. Nash was eager to step into the role and learn alongside Steve Longa and Kevin Snyder.
Nash is almost one week into his new responsibilities, and dished the latest with ScarletReport.com. Nash also discussed the staff returns of Bob Fraser and Phil Galiano, who recruited him out of Timber Creek before leaving to join Greg Schiano in the NFL.
