PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Freshman defensive end Sam Blue flipped to Rutgers from Georgetown in the final weeks before National Signing Day. The North Carolina defensive lineman is six weeks into college, and two weeks into training camp.
As soon Sam Blue enrolled at Rutgers in June, he planned to attach himself to defensive line coach Jim Panagos to learn everything he can.
A statistically dominant defender in high school, Blue is in a transition to the Rutgers "R" position. The R position is a hybrid defensive end position, which places an emphasis on pass rush and coverage.
Blue playing time came primarily in developmental periods so far, and he discussed the progress made during Sunday's media day at High Point Solutions Stadium.
