    2011 Rutgers Scarlet Knights Team Preview

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Players To Watch - Offense

    QB DC Jefferson (Junior)
    2010 - 1021 Passing / 8 TDs
    (92 Overall) 81 Speed / 90 Throwing Power / 90 Throwing Accuracy

    [​IMG]

    This highly recruited prospect out of high school has been on a long journey to get to this point. As a freshman, he was switched to TE, only to move back to QB. Luckily for Rutgers, this kid has all the tools to succeed.

    HB Jourdan Brooks (Senior)
    2010 - 29 Carries / 114 Yards / 1 TD
    (91 Overall) 88 Speed / 87 Strength / 91 Acceleration / 93 Break Tackle

    [​IMG]

    After 4 years of waiting, the redshirt senior will finally get his chance to shine. This kid is a bruiser and Rutgers will lean heavily on the senior to move the chains and win the time of possession battle in 2011.

    WR Timothy Wright (Senior)
    2010 - 45 Receptions / 734 Yards / 4 TDs
    (88 Overall) 88 Speed / 93 Acceleration / 80 Catch / 86 Catch In Traffic

    [​IMG]

    This local product spent two years on the bench before exploding in 2010, leading the Scarlet Knights in receptions and yards. As a senior, Wright will be expected to increase those totals and take the defensive focus off the run game.

    Players To Watch - Defense

    MLB Eric LeGrand (Senior)
    2010 - 9 Tackles / 2 Forced Fumbles
    (89 Overall) 80 Speed / 89 Tackle / 89 Block Shedding

    [​IMG]

    Former DT made the switch to MLB early in college career. Now a starter, must anchor the middle of the Rutgers defense.

    ROLB Manny Abreu (Senior)
    2010 - 87 Tackles / 4 Sacks / 3 Interceptions
    (92 Overall) 84 Speed / 91 Awareness / 89 Hit Power

    [​IMG]

    A three year starter, this talented ROLB is the veteran leader the Rutgers defense and the head of a talented linebacker corps. Fast, intelligent, and a big hitter, you won't find too many linebackers as talented as Abreu in the Big East Conference.

    SS Khaseem Greene (Junior)
    2010 - 27 Tackles / 1 Sack / 3 Interceptions / 2 Fumble Recoveries
    (90 Overall) 94 Speed / 94 Acceleration / 90 Hit Power / 92 Zone Coverage

    [​IMG]

    Wow, this kid is a stud! One of the fastest safties in the game, he also knows how to lay the wood to receivers who venture across the middle. If he continues to improve, he has the ability to play on Sundays.

    Week 1

    Rutgers - 45
    Army -7

    Rutgers opened the season with a big win, but also one which left some huge questions on offense. DC Jefferson, the starting QB, looked pretty bad against a horrendous Army defense. Jefferson had plenty of opportunities but never looked comfortable under center. He finished 15 of 27 for 175 yards with 0 TDs and an alarming 3 interceptions. HB Jordan Brooks looks primed for a big season, as he started his senior campaign with 126 yards and a score on just 17 carries. WR Timothy Wright had 5 catches for 80 yards and 2 scores. On defense, SS Khaseem Greene led the way with 10 tackles and 2 sacks.

    I'm not sad to see Parks go, though it won't matter with Knight's skills at controlling the safety.

    So true Jaf - I get to find out if Park's replacement is the real deal later on today.

    Week 2

    #19 Rutgers - 42
    Arizona - 9

    Rutgers gave a solid all-around effort in their home opener against the Wildcats. Lets cut to the chase - this kid Jordan Brooks is a MONSTER. Arizona had no answer for the senior HB, as he thrashed the Wildcat defense for 261 yards and 4 scores on 27 carries. After sitting on the bench for 4 years, Brooks is proving to all that good things do come to those who wait. QB DC Jefferson improved on his stat line in this second week, but he still has a ways to go. He completed 12 of 21 passes for 139 yards with 1 score and 1 interception. Sophomore Aaron Heyward led the way for the Scarlet Knights in the passing game, catching 7 balls for 88 yards.

    #18 Rutgers - 49
    Ohio - 7

    Rutgers wins again, but it came at quite a cost. In the second quarter, Rutgers WR Timothy Wright suffered a ruptured disc and is lost for the season. Wright, the Rutgers leading receiver, will be sorely missed. DC Jefferson was horrible yet again, as he threw 3 interceptions and was replaced by Tom Savage. Savage had a good game, as he was 18/22 for 274 yards with a 4/1 ratio. In other news, the grass is still green and Jordan Brooks is still on fire. He ran for 162 yards on 25 carries with a score.

    15 Rutgers - 38
    22 West Virginia - 22

    It was really a tale of two halves. Rutgers jumped up 24-0 to end the half, only to watch their lead crumble due to a great performance by the West Virginia passing game. HB Jordan Brooks was phenomenal in this game. He ran for 183 yards and three scores on 24 carries. QB DC Jefferson was 10/12 for 139 yards with an interception (whats new). On defense, the only play of note for the Scarlet Knights occurred on the defense's opening drive, as Eric LeGrand picked off a West Virginia pass in the end zone.

    As stated earlier, some Mountaineers had huge games. WR Logan Heastie grabbed 8 receptions for 202 yards and 2 scores while QB Eugene Smith was 21/27 for 321 yards with a 2/1 ratio.

    Good game by Masler - if this game were not at home, I probably would have lost.

    15 Rutgers - 48
    Pittsburgh - 14

    After playing a tough West Virginia team, Rutgers took the field at home against Pittsburgh. RU looked good throughout the contest, led primarily by the outstanding QB play of DC Jefferson. The junior QB was 16 of 20 for 271 yards with a score on the ground and through the air. His main target today, Brandon Jones, grabbed 6 passes for a clean 120 yards. On the ground, Jordan Brooks found a few holes and rushed for 114 yards on 22 carries with 2 scores. His backup, Brad Jackson, ran for 81 yards. On defense, Khaseem Greene led the way with 12 tackles for the Scarlett Knights. Despite the good outing, Rugters had no answer for HB Dion Lewis, who led the Panthers with 116 yards on the ground.

    #8 Rutgers - 59
    Connecticut -0

    This rivalry has lost some steam in recent years due to the ascendancy of Rutgers. Today was no different, as Rutgers manhandled UConn in every facet of the game, building a 42 point lead at half. Even when the second string came in, Rutgers continued to pound the rock at will against the Huskies. In fact, Rutgers ran for 480 yards and 5 scores on the ground against the Huskies. Next week, Rutgers travels to play another rival, the Syracuse Orange.

    Rutgers Stats:

    DC Jefferson - 5/6 - 94 Yards - 1/1
    Jordan Brooks - 24 Attempts - 223 Yards - 1 TD
    Joey Hodges - 18 Attempts - 134 Yards - 1 TD
    Khaseem Greene - 1 Interception Returned for TD
    Marcus Witherspoon - 1 Fumble Recovery Returned for TD

    5 Rutgers - 40
    Syracuse - 7

    In their second rivalry game on the road in as many weeks, Rutgers downed the hated Orange in the Carrier Dome. In front of a hostile crowd, DC Jefferson kept his cool and more importantly did not turn the ball over. Jordan Brooks found it tough to break the big run but still gained 100 yards on the day. WR Aaron Heyward left the game with an injury and will be out for a month. With WR Timothy Wright already out for the year, this is an injury the Scarlett Knights could have done without.

    Stats - Rutgers

    QB DC Jefferson - 7/15 - 123 Yards - 0/0 - 5 Attempts - 71 Yards

    WR Aaron Heyward - 2 Receptions - 60 Yards

    #8 Notre Dame - 17

    Wow! Rutgers walks away from the field feeling mighty lucky. Down 17-0 in the third quarter, Rutgers reeled off 21 straight in front of the home crowd to escape with the victory. Although the win was huge, Rutgers lost yet another player, as star QB DC Jefferson is out for the next 9 weeks.

    #2 Rutgers - 34
    USF - 29

    Man this game sucked. Rutgers, fresh off receiving their highest poll position in school history, almost blew it against a USF team with 1 win. I'm not sure what went wrong besides the QB play of Tom Savage. I do know what went right - the running of Jordan Brooks. Brooks broke Ray Rice's single game rushing record with 307 yards on a mind numbing 47 carries. I didn't want to do it to Brooks, but we had no choice.

    Stats - RU

    Tom Savage - 9/22 - 114 Yards - 1/2
    Jordan Brooks - 47 Attempts - 307 yards - 2 TDs

    #2 Rutgers - 35
    #4 Cincy - 27

    Rutgers wins the biggest game in school history, downing a top-5 Cincy team 35-27. The banged up Scarlett Knights again relied heavily on Heisman candidate Jordan Brooks, who responded by rushing for 143 yards and 4 scores. The game was close throughout, and Rutgers feels lucky to walk away with the win.

    Stats - Rutgers

    QB Tom Savage - 15/20 - 186 Yards - 0/0
    HB Jordan Brooks - 30 Attempts - 143 Yards - 4 TDs

    TE Pete Carrezola - 4 Receptions - 51 Yards

    #1 Rutgers - 35
    #21 South Carolina - 27

    A week after Rutgers claims the #1 rank in the country, they almost lose it all but hold on to defeat the South Carolina Gamecocks on the road. Winning close games is nothing new to this team, as this is the fourth week in a row that the Scarlett Knights have won a game by 8 points or less. Jordan Brooks continued his push for the Heisman, this time running for 200 yards and 2 scores against a determined USC front seven. Backup QB Tom Savage keeps looking more confident every week - against USC he played mistake free ball and generally moved the chains when called upon. Rutgers may not look like the top team in the nation, but they can stamp their ticket to the National Title game with a win on the road at Louisville next week.

    Stats - Rutgers

    QB Tom Savage - 17/25 - 224 Yards - 1/0
    HB Jordan Brooks - 38 Attempts - 200 Yards - 2 TDs
    TE Paul Carrezola - 5 Receptions - 59 Yards - 1 TD
    WR Aaron Hayward - 4 Receptions - 69 Yards
    SS Khaseem Greene - 11 Tackles
    FS Mohamed Sanu - 7 Tackles - 1 Interception
    DE Alvin Wall - 3 Sacks

    #1 Rutgers - 40
    Louisville - 20

    Rutgers ends the regular season on a high note - defeating Louisville 40-20 to stay undefeated. Rutgers and QB Tom Savage started out on fire and built a 31 point lead. Then Savage made poor decision after poor decision and Louisville stormed back to make it a 31-20 game at halftime. As a result of his poor play, Savage was replaced by third-string QB James Greene, who was steady but unspectacular. The star of this game was HB Jordan Brooks, who ran the ball 34 times for 194 yards and 2 TDs. Brooks set school records for most rushing yards in a season and most touchdowns in a season during this game. Now the waiting game begins. Will Rutgers stay in the top two to ensure a place in the national title game, or will Oklahoma and North Carolina edge out the Scarlet Knights? Stay tuned.

    Stats - Rutgers

    QB Tom Savage - 9/16 - 181 Yards - 0/3
    HB Jordan Brooks - 34 Attempts - 194 Yards - 2 TDs
    WR Aaron Heyward - 3 Receptions - 116 Yards
    OLB Manny Abreu - 11 Tackles - 2 Sacks - 1 Interception
