Connecticut Big Man Talks Rutgers

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New Canaan (Conn.) three-star offensive lineman Lucas Niang spoke with Scout last week about where Rutgers stands among his schools after a recent visit to campus.

New Canaan (Conn.) offensive lineman Lucas Niang enjoyed a recent Rutgers visit where head coach Kyle Flood hit home on the program's goals and ideals.

"On that visit, I learned a lot,” Niang said. “Rutgers is kind of like a big family. In practice although they're a big family, they were very competitive. They're They were all working hard. They don’t take plays off, but when they do, they get yelled at just like you’d expect.”

The three-star, 6-foot-5 offensive lineman does not want to decide soon with visits targetted to Miami, Kentucky and Virginia in addition to ones already taken to Syracuse, Connecticut and Penn State.

"There's not one most important part," Niang said. "I think it's a balance of football and school for me."
