Rutgers has a new offense in 2016 and wants everyone to know it. The Scarlet Knights hosted more than two dozen prospects Saturday at practice to showcase its makeover, and at least one offensive lineman left impressed.
“It looked like I was watching Ohio State practice,” said Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph Regional offensive lineman Joshua Fedd-Jackson. “It was my second time there today, and I liked watching spring practice. Every time I go up there, it’s an eye opener because practice was hurried up.”
Fedd-Jackson enjoyed the competition with open spots on the offensive line. He also spent time with offensive line coach A.J. Blazek.
“He’s a great coach,” Fedd-Jackson said. “He really helps them. He cares about them and he corrects their mistakes.
“There is a lot of competition. I think they don’t have any set starters except for center, so there was some nice fight up there. Their offense is looking sick. Number 13 (Carlton Agudosi) is crazy dangerous and they have a guy No. 1 (Janarion Grant) that was doing a lot at running back.”
Fedd-Jackson stayed after practice to speak with coach Chris Ash before he went home. He leaves for North Carolina in the morning and hopes to see Pittsburgh and Notre Dame soon.
“We talked about being a guy to set it off,” Fedd-Jackson said. “He talked about not being a follower and being a leader. I liked [Rutgers] last year too, but I have to see how they look this season.”
