Turay Too Dominant in Second Scrimmage

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Sophomore Kemoko Turay sat out of third-down pass rushing situations for Rutgers after an overly dominant start to Saturday's scrimmage at defensive end.

The Rutgers defense, and Kemoko Turay specifically, struck back against the offense in Saturday's scrimmage with five sacks, a defensive touchdown and a safety.

Turay was so dominant at defensive end that coach Kyle Flood removed him from blitzing downs in favor of Myles Nash to make it more fair for the offense.

"Whatever we've got to do just to keep our team getting better, that's a good thing," Turay said. "I feel like Myles Nash has got potential. For him working with the ones, that was a good opportunity for him to get better."

Turay sacked the quarterback three times in his limited work at defensive end, and rides his momentum into the spring game as one of the top defensive performers of camp.

"That was good, but then again I felt like I had more work to do just to learn," Turay said. "I'm just sitting the sidelines learning, focused and watching my teammates.
