Rutgers coach Kyle Flood broke down the second spring scrimmage, including standouts and room for improvement.
The Headline -- Rutgers did not make depth chart changes out of Saturday’s scrimmage, but the staff learned plenty from film sessions.
“I saw John [Tsimis] make some catches,” Flood said. “I didn’t realize that he had seven on the day. He and Carlton [Agudosi] had seven. That was as much as anybody. That was something that I didn’t notice. I thought John made some of the more spectacular catches when you watch him on film. He did a really nice job – really productive day for him.”
Worth Noting -- Junior college transfer Isaiah Johnson is not yet looked at as a starter, but his massive amount of first-team work in spring camp puts him in good position at middle linebacker.
“The first team always operates a little more smoothly than maybe the second team and third team do,” Flood said. “So if they’re operating around you more smoothly, the communication is better, I think that helps him come along. I think he’s done a good job. The best thing about Isaiah and what he’s done this spring is he’s learned how we play. He’s learned how we run to the football. I think he fits in very well with the rest of the players.”
Quote of the Day -- “I think overall, he’s had a good spring. I didn’t think he finished great on Saturday but it was good to see him come back today and hit a game-winning kick at the end of practice. We count on him to do that. He expects to get it done for us.” – Flood on kicker Kyle Federico.
Now sit back and take in Flood’s press conference.
