Leonte Carroo talks Ralph Friedgen's offense at Rutgers
Rutgers' Leonte Carroo has had only one practice in new offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen's system, but the junior had nearly all offseason to digest it.
Carroo says Friedgen's offense features a lot of different route combinations, several of which run vertical.
“I feel like it gives the receivers more opportunities," Carroo said. "It allows us to open it up. We opened it up today and it’s just the first day. I know he has a pretty great package that he has for us. I love the fact that we’re opening it up and it’s only the first day.”
Head coach Kyle Flood lured Friedgen out of retirement in late January with a $500,000 salary for each of the next two seasons. Flood's base salary rose to $950,000 this season.
Friedgen is Rutgers' fifth play caller in as many seasons.
"He’s a very smart guy," Carroo said, "and I know he has a great plan for us.”
