Rutgers Keeping Tabs on Maryland DB

Defensive back Adrian Amos of Calvert Hall (Baltimore, Md.) holds offers from West Virginia, Connecticut and Temple, and is also being recruited by a number of other schools, including Rutgers. Amos recently spoke to about his recruitment, the interest level of the Scarlet Knights and which positiion he prefers to play in college.

Rutgers has sent out plenty of offers for the 2011, but it doesn't mean the Scarlet Knights aren't keeping tabs on other players yet to receive offers.

One of the players the Scarlet Knights continue to keep track of is Calvert Hall (Baltimore, Md) defensive back Adrian Amos, who holds offers from Connecticut, West Virginia and Temple.

"I get a lot of emails from them and I talked to their coaches a couple of times," Amos said. "They're showing me interest, but not as much as some other schools.

"I talk to UConn more than anybody."

Amos is 6-foot, 198 pounds and plays receiver and cornerback for Calvert Hall, but schools are looking at him to play in the secondary.

"Safety or corner," he said. "I like defense more."

Connecticut and West Virginia offered Amos as a safety, and Temple is looking at him as a combo defensive back who can play a variety of places in the secondary.

Although those are the schools to offer, he remains open in the process, and has interest in the Scarlet Knights.

He got a look at the Rutgers campus when he participated in a 7-on-7 event in February, but that was only the beginning of his busy spring and summer.

Amos did a number of combines and camps, including stops at Connecticut, West Virginia, South Carolina and Pittsburgh.

"That's basically where I got my offers from, from going to the camps," he said. It's been fun going to all these camps. Tiring after a while, but it's still fun."

And from those camps, Amos said he believes he is close to other offers, including ones from South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.
