One of the unproven players is class of 2012 dual-threat quarterback Brandon Napoleon, doubles as a cornerback, and is getting interest from West Virginia, Michigan, Miami, South Florida, Purdue and Maryland.
"They're all looking at me as a quarterback,' Napoleon said. "That's where I want to play. It's my natural position. I've been playing it since Pop Warner."
Rutgers is also recruiting the 6-foot, 175-pound Napoleon, but the Scarlet Knights' interest, to this point, is in the secondary.
Although Napoleon is unproven, he said the talent around him eases his responsibilities. "I see the wide receivers, the running backs …everybody is talented on this team," Napoleon said. "There's not one spot you can pick on and say it's the most talented. I think it's the whole team.
"The running backs are fast and our receivers our big and strong and have good hands. Without the line, the running backs wouldn't be able to run the ball and I wouldn't be able to pass. They're very good."
During a recent practice, Napoleon showed good arm strength and the ability to throw on the run. However, his accuracy needs to improve, but that should take a major leap with the reps he is now getting.
