What We Learned?

Of course, the three-man quarterback competition continues and will likely not crown a winner until Saturday. As for the group protecting the quarterback, there is a bit more clarity.

With Reggie Sutton out with an injury, Rutgers added some members of the offensive line in the transfer portal. Willie Tyler III, JD DiRenzo, and Curtis Dunlap Jr. all have a chance to be starters for the Scarlet Knights this season. Hollin Pierce will man one of the tackle spots while Ireland Brown is slotted as the center.

Defensively, the secondary looks solid with Max Melton, Avery Young, and Christian Izien returning. The linebackers have been a big question mark but it seems as though Tyreem Powell and Deion Jennings have emerged as the frontrunners.

As the week goes on, there will have to be a decision made under center and at many other positions. What we do know is that there is a guide to how Rutgers might look when they take the field on Saturday against Boston College.
