During spring practice, Rutgers football defensive line coach Marquise Watson was already used to seeing true freshmen Kenny Fletcher in his helmet and shoulder pads. Over this past weekend, however, a cap and gown was the uniform for Fletcher.

And Watson appears to have been happy for this wardrobe change.

Watson attended Fletcher’s high school graduation this past Friday at Delran High School (Delran, N.J.). Fletcher is a four-star edge rusher who was ranked the fourth-best player in New Jersey according to Rivals.

He had a number of Power Five offers including Boston College, Duke, Michigan, Ole Miss, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and West Virginia among others.

Watson, for what it is worth, was recently named to a prestigious assistant coaching shortlist.

Moments like this, such as attending one of his player’s high school graduation, show why he has incredible potential on the Rutgers staff:

 

Fletcher comes in as part of an impressive 2022 recruiting class for Rutgers football and head coach Greg Schiano. He was one of eight early enrollees this past spring.

Watson joined the Rutgers recruiting staff this past January. He did not recruit Fletcher.
