PISCATAWAY — Unless Kyle Flood made up his mind about the starting quarterback before the Rutgers football team began its second scrimmage of training camp Saturday night, making a decision just got a little bit harder.Noting all week that it’s been a good thing that the on-field product of his two young signal-callers has made him hesitant to single out one of them as the starter for the 2015 season, the fourth-year head coach witnessed another solid showing from Chris Laviano and Hayden Rettig.The two sophomores went back and forth under the lights at High Point Solutions Stadium, splitting reps with the first and second team offense to wrap up the second week of camp here in Piscataway.“I wanted to give both quarterbacks the opportunity to play with both groups,” Flood said.
Charles Scarff is hard to miss.At 6-foot-5, 240 pounds, the sophomore tight end stands tall as he anchors the line of scrimmage.
Last August, few expected the Rutgers football team to be competitive. Senior Leonte Carroo — now a star after posting 1,086 receiving yards while catching 10 touchdowns — was a relative unknown and the nine-win season in 2009 was a distant memory.After impressing Big Ten opponents and shocking college football analysts in their first year in the league, the Scarlet Knights (8-5, 3-5) and their most potent playmaker have everyone's attention now. That attention will force defenses to design their schemes around Carroo, the nation’s leader in yards per catch in 2014 with an average of 19.7 yards for every reception.The emphasis on the other wideouts' contributions are crucial when considering double-teams are now a given, and even triple-teams can be expected for No. 4 in scarlet and white.But it is No. 1 and 'Dos' who could determine the Knights' fate this fall.Junior Janarion Grant (No. 1) electrified Rutgers fans as a kick returner in 2014, falling a mere 38 yards shy of the school record for kick return yards (910) while averaging nine yards per punt return.The return talents of the Trilby, Florida, native weren't completely unforeseen after he racked up 517 kick return yards in his first season on the banks.Grant is the type of player who's listed position is 'athlete.'He displayed his prowess at multiple positions for the Knights last season, finishing second on the team behind Carroo in catches (25) to go with 312 receiving yards.
After receiving very little interest coming out of high school, Charles Scarff rolled the dice on Rutgers. Since arriving as a walk-on last year, the sophomore tight end has made the most of his opportunity and could see valuable playing time in a wide-open position battle.

Confidence is the crutch on which healthy players lean.But a crisis in confidence can kill a college athlete's career.Missed tackles, dropped passes and busted assignments can sow the seeds of self-doubt. And what’s worse — all three can happen at anytime or anywhere on the field.
After submerging himself in an ice bath following the Rutgers football team’s practice on Wednesday, Julian Pinnix-Odrick made his way over to the media.The Scarlet Knights hit their ninth day of practice and it’s no secret that the grind has grown to be twice as grueling. After two days of double-sessions and a scrimmage
According to head coach Kyle Flood, junior speedster Janarion Grant can line up anywhere on the field. Grant fell 38 yards short of the school record for kick return yards last season, closing the year with 910 return yards while finishing second on the team in receptions with 25.
After a day of crunching down on the film and evaluating the performance of the Rutgers football team’s first scrimmage of training camp on Monday, there was some reason to believe that Kyle Flood’s decision to name a starting quarterback could come after Tuesday’s practice.But the fourth-year head coach, who gave a 7-10 day timetable from the start of the Scarlet Knights’ camp last week for naming Gary Nova’s successor, only revealed that the decision could be soon.“I think we’ve got a really close race at quarterback, and that’s exciting,” Flood said after practice.
From the moment Janarion Grant first touched the football in his Rutgers football debut, everyone watching had a reason to believe he could be special.As a true freshman on the primetime national television stage of his team’s season opener at Fresno State, Grant showcased his blazing speed on his very first play — a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Chris Laviano decided to get right to it.On the first passing play of the Rutgers football team’s scrimmage Monday, the sophomore quarterback hit Andre Patton with a bulls-eye throw right on a post route over the middle.From there, the junior wide receiver did the rest, galloping to the end zone with ease for a 60-yard touchdown pass.“It felt good, you know, to be the first one to score a touchdown,” Patton said afterward.
