Your non-camp update

The New York Daily News finally noticed that Rutgers has 3 commits from Brooklyn this year.

An article on GBNreport discussed the pro potential of Mike Teel.

10. Mike Teel, Rutgers - 6-4, 220, SR.... 2007 Statistics: 203-349 (58.2%), 3,147 yards, 20 TD 13 INT

This is one player that I see shooting up the draft charts during the season. Teel, who looked overmatched as a sophomore for the Scarlet Knights, had a very good season in his junior campaign. He will have an even bigger year in 2008 after Rutgers lost school rushing leader Ray Rice to the NFL. With stud WRs Kenny Britt and Tiquan Underwood back, an improvement to all of his junior numbers is completely feasible. He has good size, and has improved in all aspects of his game over his time at Rutgers. If he can improve his decision making and mechanics over the course of his senior season, expect Teel to be a first day pick in next year’s NFL Draft.

Caleb Ruch recently won a strongman competition.

The Star-Ledger profiled Brandon Renkart yesterday.

A knee injury will keep Willis McGahee out of Baltimore's season opener. Their coaches are worried that it may be a lingering condition. Rice is the only healthy back in Ravens camp, and is in the familiar position of getting every single practice rep.

The Ravens have had their fair share of injuries at running back, and they can’t afford to lose star rookie Ray Rice. One fan may have prevented another injury as he caught Rice as he went out of bounds and helped him back onto the field. After the play, Ravens secondary coach Chuck Pagano said, "Sign that fan up. Get him a shirt and a hat."

A local paper in Tampa Bay did a story on Jeremy Zuttah's older brother, Jeff. His career was over at Michigan before it started due to sickle-cell anemia. He later transferred to Stanford. Don't feel too sorry for Jeff though. Like his brother Jeremy, Jeff graduated with an economics degree, and is currently an investment banker for Morgan Stanley in N.Y.C. The Zuttahs are truly a special family; we can only hope that the youngest brother A.J. finds his way to the banks down the road.
