PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Eric Wiafe enrolled in January, and the Rutgers defensive tackle is hoping that will allow him to get on the field as a freshman.
Eric Wiafe's path to Rutgers wasn't easy.
He arrived for summer sessions in June 2013, and thought he met NCAA eligibility requirements, only to learn days before training camp he did not.
So he packed up and attended New Berlin (N.Y.) Milford Academy last fall, gained his eligibility and enrolled at Rutgers in January.
After going through spring practice and learning the defensive line responsibilities, the freshman defensive tackle believes he is ready to play this season, and he spoke to ScarletReport.com about it.
