Leonte Carroo is not intimidated by the big names and big crowds of the Big Ten conference. Carroo got used to the spotlight quickly as a national champion in high school and impact player for New Jersey's top college football team.
On his largest stage to date in 2014, Carroo has 648 yards to lead Rutgers from scrimmage. He's on pace to be the first 1,000-yard receiver at Rutgers since Mohamed Sanu, and his five touchdowns are second behind Paul James for the top spot in Piscataway.
Carroo's latest shining moment came against Ohio State as time expired in the third quarter. Carroo leapt over his defender and muscled an under thrown ball out of the hands of a cornerback for a 40-yard reception -- the longest play from scrimmage for Rutgers.
Carroo described his big catch after Wednesday's practice and looked ahead to Nebraska.
