A Last Look at the RU Campers

This was unlike any previous Rutgers Football Camp, with a record number of high school athletes having attended the now desirous and chic camp. In this photo shoot, we take a look at some of the athletes most fans are already familiar with and some rising athletes to keep in mind for the future.

Devon Watkis, RU OL commitment, prepares for his 40-yard dash.

Devon Watkis, likely the biggest prospect on hand, barrels down the Rutgers field.

Despite his commitment, a couple of schools have continued to keep in touch with Watkis, though he assures Rutgers fans he's as solid as solid gets.

A surprisingly fluid athlete, Tim Huckabee, by way of Timber Creek HS, passed the eye test with flying colors.

Bryce Martin, a physically impressive athlete by way of Bergen Catholic [Oradell, NJ].  At 6-foot-2 and 220-pounds Martin has played a number of positions in HS, including QB, but projects as an Ath at the next level.

Jacory Harris, by way of Northwestern HS [Miami, FL] is a Miami QB commitment as of earlier this past June.

Sancho McDonald is a rangy QB by way of Booker T. Washington [Miami, FL], that helped lead his HS squad to the Championship game of the Greg Schiano Shootout.

A highly coveted prospect at the time ... however, less than 24 hours later after the conclusion of the RU Camp, Timothy Wright, by way of Wall HS, gave his pledge to Coach Schiano and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

J.T. Tartacoff is a rising Sophomore by way of Montgomery H.S in Skillman [NJ]. Tartacoff, who has not yet come close to full physical development, stunned onlookers by flying through the 40-yard dash with a sub-4.5 second time.


D.C. Jefferson, one of the sunshine state's top overall recruits, looks more like a first year college defensive end than a senior HS QB. With a rifle for an arm and incredible size, D.C. will make some program very happy when he puts an end to his recruitment.

Devon Watkis extends his arms and pushes the oncoming defender aside.

Bryce McClain, by way of Philipsburg HS has very good size, a nice frame, and put on a good show at the RU Camp.

McClain takes his initial steps as he attacks the opposition, before ...

he turns and puts on a textbook spin on his opponent.

Mike Cole is a name NJ HS Football fans will become very familiar with over the next couple of years. The local product is only a rising Junior, but is already receiving interest from a number of high-major programs.

Cole, by way of North Brunswick Township, [6-foot-2 and 240-pounds] dominated his group and will be a recruit a number of colleges will be keeping a close eye on this fall and beyond. Cole has barely tapped his physical ability but still impressed onlookers with 23 reps (185-pounds) and a 4.4 shuttle at the NATS Combine held this past spring.
