PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Just over a week into training camp, the two biggest questions surrounding Rutgers are who'll be the starting quarterback against Texas State and how will the investigation of credit-card fraud impact the roster.
Three quarterbacks are vying for the starting nod in senior Gio Rescigno, sophomore Johnathan Lewis and freshman Artur Sitkowski. Six players were left off the roster amid the credit-card fraud investigation.
Redshirt junior linebacker/safety Malik Dixon, senior defensive back Kobe Marfo, sophomore defensive end C.J. Onyechi, redshirt freshman cornerback Edwin Lopez, redshirt freshman defensive back Naijee Jones and redshirt freshman linebacker Syhiem Simmons did not appear on the official roster distributed by the team. Simmons announced his intent to transfer via his Twitter accounting, tweeting a picture of his scholarship release form Friday.
