New York QB Coan Visits Rutgers

Rutgers hosted one of the hottest 2017 prospects in the region Wednesday in quarterback Jack Coan. Coan visited campus for the first time since his offer, and broke down the experience with Scout.

West Sayville (N.Y.) High 2017 quarterback Jack Coan is one of the hottest rising commodities in the Northeast with a spring offer list that includes Michigan, Rutgers and Miami.

He used Wednesday for an unofficial visit to the closest power five program to home – Rutgers.

“I really liked the Rutgers visit,” Coan said. “I met with all of the coaches, and I thought they were all great guys. I enjoyed seeing what it was all about.”

Coan visited Rutgers for a spring practice, and picked up an offer after offensive coordinator Ben McDaniels visited during the evaluation period.

“It was a little different from my last visit,” Coan said. “There was different stuff. I got to sit in on a meeting with coach McDaniels, kind of. He showed me how they watch film and talk to all of the coaches a little more. That was good.”

Rutgers stressed the importance of a quarterback that fits its pro-style scheme.

“I know Rutgers runs a pro-style offense, which I think really fits me,” Coan said. “That’s a benefit. … They said they really like my game. They really like my mechanics, and they think I’m a smart player. I’d say it was a really good visit. I definitely enjoyed being there.”

Coan, who said distance is not a primary factor in his recruitment, visited Michigan earlier in June. He has summer visits set to Florida, Stanford and Maryland.

“I’ve enjoyed this whole process of getting to know so many coaches,” Coan said. “I’m looking for a good college football program and great academics. I’m looking for a place where I feel comfortable. I want to like the coaches, and I want to like the people I’m going to be with.”
