Cager Talks Rutgers Camp

Baltimore Calvert Hall receiver has multiple June camps before his trip to the Opening to showcase his skills. Cager was a top receiver at the Rutgers Friday night skills camp, and discussed his experiences and where the Scarlet Knights stand.

At 6-foot-5, Baltimore Calvert Hall receiver Lawrence Cager easily stood out against his competition at Friday's Rutgers skills camp.

Cager returned to Rutgers for the first time since receiving a verbal offer. He gave the visit a positive grade.

"I think it was a pretty good experience," Cager said. "It was good to get out here and really try to dominate the competition. I wanted to show [receivers coach Ben] McDaniels what I have. It was cool. The defensive backs weren't great competition."

Cager received significant attention from the coaching staff, highlighted by McDaniels. Brother of New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels,

Ben McDaniels' experience includes time as the Denver Broncos quarterback coach and an assistant under Greg Schiano with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"I'm very comfortable with the coaches," Cager said. "I know coach McDaniels well, and he's a great coach. He's got that NFL background. He's a good coach for me, and I got to work with some of the players."

Rutgers receivers Leonte Carroo, Ruhann Peele and Carlton Agudosi helped McDaniels work the wide receivers in the camp.

"They were great because they've mastered the things I'm still learning right now," Cager said. "They seemed like great guys. They already know the staff that you're learning. They've already played at the next level, especially Leonte. He had a huge season last year."

Cager camped at Maryland Sunday, where he earned his ninth verbal offer.

"The coaches wanted to get me down there to see more of me," Cager said. "They wanted to offer me for a while, but they wanted to get me to camp. They're my home team."

Cager said he will trim his list to about five schools by the end of the summer, and aim for a mid-season decision.
