SIGNED:Piscataway Running Back Elijah Barnwell is a Scarlet Knight

Piscataway (N.J.) Township running back Elijah Barnwell signed with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Projected Position – Running Back

In His Words – “I had an offer from Rutgers, but I wasn't comfortable yet. I was still thinking about it. Then I was speaking with coach Lester Erb and coach Jerry Kill and they told me how important I would be to their offense. They told me how they need a guy like me to change their offense around and how I would be in the running early. I believe them because they have two seniors and that's mostly it.”

Scouting the Scarlet Knight – “Barnwell is best suited to run between the tackles. He does a good job of running with a low pad level, and he runs with power. He needs to continue to improve his footwork, but he shows an ability to get through the hole quickly and he has the size to be tough to bring down at the second level.” Scout National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn.
