ICYMI: Ian Strong, Davoun Fuse highlight positional changes of the spring for Rutgers football

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — There were two positional changes for Rutgers football true freshmen this spring that were highlighted by the Scarlet-White Game flip card.

Both moves see true freshmen, who enrolled this spring, move from the defense to the offense.

Ian Strong’s move from safety to wide receiver is a fascinating one given that the true freshman was an elite defensive back out of high school in Long Island. With his length and size not to mention his effortless strides, Strong has the ability to be a playmaker at wide receiver.

Another move from defense to offense is Davoun Fuse, a true freshman and a former three-star recruit from Pennsylvania. A quarterback in high school, Fuse came into the program as a linebacker this January but his tremendous athleticism sees him back to the offense.

Fuse has added about 20 pounds from his listed weight while in high school.

Rutgers lacks depth at wide receiver is underscored by the loss of their three leading wide receivers from last year due to graduation.
