2012 WR Agudosi Knows Rutgers Well

One of the more impressive underclassman receivers to camp at Rutgers was 6-foot-6, 195-pound Carlton Agudosi of Franklin High (Somerset, N.J.). He was already on Rutgers' radar for the 2012 class, but the interest intensified after his camp performance. Agudosi already is well-versed in Rutgers, and he spoke with ScarletReport.com about the school, his recruitment and his preferred position.

It was impossible to miss Franklin High (Somerset, N.J.) receiver Carlton Agudosi at Rutgers camp last week, and not because he is 6-foot-6, 195 pounds.

During the Tuesday afternoon session, Agudosi was dominant. The class of 2012 prospect routinely went over, past and in front of defensive backs in one-on-one drills, at one point making eight catches in a row. He was so good cornerbacks began lining up to for their turn to try and stop him.

Rutgers' coaching staff certainly noticed it because plenty of its members talked to Agudosi during the camp.

"I talked to (assistant) coach (Bob) Fraser a lot," Agudosi said. "He was telling me I had a lot of potential to do great things at Rutgers, and he's going to keep on looking at me, and he wants to see me at Rutgers.

"He basically hinted that they will offer me."

Agudosi cannot receive a written an offer until Sept. 1, and even before the camp the Scarlet Knights were recruiting him. He is also getting interest from Pittsburgh, Massachusetts and Delaware. And each gave him a similar message about his style.

"They say they really like my size," Agudosi said. "If you would see me walking down the street you wouldn't think I would be fast and be able to jump or anything like that, but when I start playing they're surprised I can move with my size."

But the Scarlet Knights have a built-in advantage since Franklin High is seven minutes from Rutgers Stadium.

"I know a lot about Rutgers," Agudosi said. "I like the fact they play young players early, freshmen early. I like the fact that they play in a bowl game every year. I like their new facilities, I like their coaching staff, how they make you feel at home, and I like the fact that they put people in the NFL."

There is the potential for Agudosi to add weight and muscle and transition to tight end in college, but he is not interested in that.

"I see myself as a receiver because I'm more of a play-maker," Agudosi said. "When I get the ball in my hands, I think I can make plays. Just throw it up and I'll catch it."
