Pascall Set for Return to Rutgers

Cherry Hill (N.J.) West defensive back Chris Pascall enjoyed his recent Rutgers visit so much that he will be back this Friday. With the Big Ten Network set for a live broadcast on that day, Pascall is looking forward to another solid visit with the Scarlet Knights.

Cherry Hill (N.J.) West defensive back Chris Pascall visited Rutgers for its first practice of training camp. He will return to campus for practice No. 8 this Friday.

“It’s a school I really, really like,” Pascall said. “I feel comfortable there, and with them going to the Big Ten, that’s huge. That makes me really like them.”

Pascall visited alongside offered 2016 receiver Kelvin Harmon. The 6-foot-3 safety is cousins with former multi-year Rutgers starter Logan Ryan.

Pascall camped at Rutgers in the summer, but has more to show the coaching staff before an offer can come.

“They want me to be more physical as a corner,” Pascall said. “They want me to show more aggression out there. They want to see a lot of tackles out of me my senior year.”

Rutgers gave Pascall and Harmon a tour of the Rutgers facilities before Friday’s practice and invited him to return next week when the Big Ten Network visits campus. Pascall also spent time with defensive backs coach Darrell Wilson, who is also his recruiter.

“What stood out to me is that the coaches were very personable,” Pascall said. “They seemed like they really wanted to help me get to the next level.

“I really like the school. I’ve been up there a few times, and every time I come up there they just make me feel like I’m at home.”

Pascall was one of the senior standouts for the Next Level Greats – a South Jersey 7-on-7 team. Playing alongside rising seniors like Irvin Charles and Alex Hornibrook, Pascall qualified for the national tournaments played in Florida.

“If I can compete against some of the best athletes in the nation and be successful, then I can definitely handle it at the next level,” he said. “I’m confident in myself.”

Temple, Old Dominion, Central Connecticut State and Stony Brook are also in the mix for Pascall, he said.
