Multiple Fort Myers (Fla.) Dunbar High standouts camped and competed at Rutgers Saturday for the final skills camp of June. Linebacker Shanon Reid and 2019 athlete Seneca Milledge both hold verbal offers from the Scarlet Knights and got their first taste of the Chris Ash era on the visit.
Dunbar arrived for a camp before a behind-the-scenes look at Rutgers.
“It's really beautiful,” said Reid, who holds more than 20 verbal offers. “We really see the inside of everything and learn about where they're going with the education of it.”
Rutgers assistant defensive backs coach Aaron Henry, from nearby Immokalee, Fla., connected with Dunbar in spring evaluation and led the charge during their Rutgers visit.
“I didn't really participate as a camper because it was such a long trip but the environment was really good,” Reid said. “The coaching staff was welcoming, especially coach Henry. He can relate to us guys that are from down South. It's good to have a guy on the inside that can guide you along.”
Reid said that Mississippi State, Michigan Rutgers, Syracuse and Miami are recruiting him the hardest.
Milledge is already a track star. Rutgers was one of his first offers after a connection with Henry during the spring evaluation period.
“Coach Henry is a really good guy,” Milledge said. “He keeps it real. He put me at DB some and receiver some, but he said they mostly want me at running back. I like that best.”
Milledge camped for Rutgers at Saturday's skills camp before he joined teammates on a full Rutgers tour.
“It was a great visit,” he said. “I got to see a lot of new things. There's some good things going up here in New Jersey. I don't know all of the coaches yet but it was great to meet the head coach. They're standup male figures.”
