Recent NCAA ruling has disallowed College Coaches from attending such events. However, The BigTime Showcase will be distributing, to over 300 College Coaches across the nation, an exhaustive list of invited players and a comprehensive report of their performance.
The event will offer the opportunity to pit the best against the best at each position. Therefore, each player in attendance will have the chance to attract the necessary eyeballs that will help them get recruited.
The young stars of tomorrow will be cached by the stars of today. Current and former NFL players will help coach different positions with the goal being that their position wins the Positional War. For example, former New York Jet and Fox Sports Announcer Ray Lucas will be in attendance and will be coaching the quarterbacks. Former Rutgers All-American honoree and forer Pittsburgh Steeler Marco Battaglia will coach the Wide Receivers and Tight Ends. Current players such as L.J. Smith, Gary Brackett, and New York Giants Super Bowl Captain Sean O'Hara, Brian Leonard, and Ray Rice, all former Rutgers Scarlet Knights, may also be in attendance.
Although the event is by Invitation Only, geared toward the top athletes on the East Coast, interested athletes yet to receive an invite may contact Chris Melvin, (732-822-8163), of EliteRecruits.com, to request invitation.
A number of regional and national media organizations, in addition to CBS Sports, will be in attendance reporting on the event.
StateofRutgers.com will also bring a trio of its analysts to the event and will provide fans with a comprehensive summary, including individual player analysis, of all performers.
