Rutgers looking at Maryland pair

With a bye this week, Rutgers coaches will be out reccruiting some known talent, and also scouring to uncover new gems. One of the stops on Friday will be at Meade Senior High (Fort Meade, Md.), where the Scarlet Knights will be checking out a pair of players. Find out the new names on Rutgers' radar.

Meade Senior High (Fort Meade, Md) coach Lance Clelland sent out video of two of his top players earlier this week, and the response has been tremendous.

So much so Clelland said a Rutgers defensive line coach Gary Emanuel would be at the school Friday to check out defensive end Mwanza Wamulumba and running back/receiver Teldrick Morgan.

"There will be (a lot more interest) because of the film,'' Clelland said. "Literally, I waited until I had a solid amount of film on both and sent it out. They both have had terrific years.

"UConn is coming next week, MAC schools are interested, Duke is interested and UNC will be interested. I just sent the film out Monday.''

Wamulumba is a 6-foot-2, 240-pound defensive end who is also the state wrestling champion at 215 pounds. He runs a 4.8 in the 40-yard dash.

During the summer Wamulumba was being recruited by Rhode Island, Towson and Massachusetts, but now Football Bowl Subdivision schools are getting involved.

"He is very explosive,'' Clelland said. "He has about 15 sacks this year.''

The 6-foot, 190-pound Morgan said he does not have any offers, but has been hearing from Wagner, Richmond, Monmouth, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, James Madison, Elon and Villanova.

"Teldrick is explosive as well,'' Clelland said. "I've seen him go through the middle and take it around the outside. He can do both.''

Morgan said he is looking for a school where he can get a "good education, a school where I can compete, a school where I learn and grow, athletically and personally.''

As for Rutgers, he knows the basics.

"I know there located in New Jersey,'' he said, "they're a Division-I program, they're in the Big East conference and they a solid football program.''
