Monday Practice Report: Final Week Begins

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers coach Kyle Flood met the media for the first time since his team's recent scrimmage to discuss what he saw on film and where the Scarlet Knights sit during the final week of spring practice.

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.
