What did RB Davis Learn at Rutgers?

Rutgers target Charles Davis, a running back from Neptune (N.J.) High, was seen at practice Saturday wearing a Rutgers jacket. What did it mean? And why did he have it on? Also, what did Davis learn on his latest trip up Route 18 to see the Scarlet Knights? Davis provides all the answers to the questions, and what he is thinking about when it comes to making a decision.

Neptune (N.J.) High running back Charles Davis caused some chatter when he was seen at Rutgers practice Saturday wearing an unmistakable Scarlet jacket with an "R" embroidered on it.

Given previous statements about his affinity for Rutgers, it caused even more speculation as to whether he would commit soon.

Alas, the jacket was a loaner, provided to Davis so he could keep warm during a chilly practice. And while he got a chuckle out of the commotion his wardrobe caused, committing somewhere isn't on his mind.

Instead, Davis is focused on learning more about several programs, including Rutgers, so he was focused on what was transpiring on the practice field.

"I liked the practice a lot,'' he said. "I want to see the coaching staff and if I get along with them. I just want to go where I'm comfortable and I fit in for four years.

"I look at things than can help me better in my season, and I could learn. From my understanding, they run a pro-style offense, so I try to pick up things during practice.''

After the practice Davis said he and many of the other recruits, including close friends St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) running back Savon Huggins and Long Branch (N.J.) High athlete Miles Shuler, ate lunch, spent time in the player's game lounge and met with the coaching staff.

"We basically got to talk to the whole coaching staff,'' Davis said. "We talked to a lot of them.''

Whether Davis heads to other schools to see spring practice is uncertain. He participates in track and field, competing in the 100, 200 and 400 meters, and his schedule could preclude him from going far for an unofficial visit.

However, it looks like Saturday won't be his lone visit to Rutgers this spring.

"I will definitely go up to a lot of spring practices,'' Davis said. "I live close by, so I figure why not.''
