SIGNED: Wilson Defensive Back Edwin Lopez is a Rutgers Scarlet Knight.

Camden (N.J.) Wilson defensive back Edwin Lopez signs with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Projected Position – Safety

From His Words – “I really need to stay home and I feel like I can do big things when I get there. [Me going to Rutgers] is a big moment. It's something new to a lot of us out here.”

Scouting the Scarlet Knight – “Lopez is a very good prospect who does a lot of things well. He is aggressive and will play physical as a cornerback, and he has the size to play safety. He will enter college as a cornerback, though. He breaks on the ball well, has plus change of direction, he tracks the ball well, he comes up in run support and he moves laterally. He is low and comfortable in his back pedal, and he transitions well into turning and running. Lopez has quick feet.” – Scout National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn.
