Rutgers was able to add some depth to the quarterback position through the transfer market during this offseason, bringing in former Texas Tech starter McLane Carter. It provides Chris Ash with some options at the game’s most important position entering the season.

Where is the quarterback situation as we head into fall camp, though? Right now, Artur Sitkowski is still the No. 1.

“He has to earn the right to get reps, just like everybody else,” Ash said of Carter, according to “Art has been in the program. I stated after spring Art would be our No. 1 quarterback going into fall training camp. There is a competition in the room, but Art will be our No. 1 quarterback going into training camp just like he was coming out of spring.”

Sitkowski was the permanent starter for the Scarlet Knights last season, but endured some serious growing pains under center. He finished the year with 1,158 yards while completing just 49.1 percent of his passes. He threw a conference-worst 18 interceptions with only four touchdowns.

With offensive coordinator John McNulty returning for a second year — an anomaly at Rutgers — Ash is hoping serious strides will be made at the position in 2019.

But, if not, that’s the benefit of having a former starter transferring to the program. Carter, a mobile quarterback with a good arm, played in nine games during his Texas Tech career, totaling 677 passing yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

Carter also had one rushing touchdown.

Rutgers has some options under center this fall, which will be an asset to the program. As for now, though, the starting job is Sitkowski’s to lose.
