Andrew Turzilli watched Mike Teel excel as a Rutgers football senior, and now has him as a coach. A Jersey native back home after four seasons with the Kansas Jayhawks, Turzilli said it was an honor to join the Scarlet Knights.
Turzilli is the lone senior receiver playing for Teel and wide receivers coach Ben McDaniels this season. He brings size and college experience to the position in need of depth after losing both Brandon Coleman and Quron Pratt.
Head coach Kyle Flood made Turzilli available for comment for the first time Sunday, and the 6-foot-4 receiver was happy to discuss his new home.
