Rutgers QBs open with hot start to spring game
There’s a lot of interest in the quarterback battle at Rutgers this spring and it will undoubtedly trickle into the fall. But both Noah Vedral and Gavin Wimsatt showed some pretty good stuff early on in the spring game.
Vedral was the first to take the field on Friday night, leading the White down the field for a touchdown. The drive was capped by a beautiful 19-yard touchdown pass to Taj Harris.
Have a feeling we are going to see a lot of @_harris3 TD's in the fall. 👀

Wimsatt was next to take the field and he didn’t disappoint.
After leading the Scarlet down the field in response, Wimsatt connected with Kyle Monangai on a short touchdown pass to tie the game at 7-7 early in the first quarter.
Gavin Wimsatt and the Scarlet team responds ‼️

After the first two drives of the game, Vedral and Wimsatt combined to go 6-of-6 for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns. That’s a really good sign for a program that has struggled at the position over the past few seasons.
Obviously, it’s spring football. There’s still a lot of work to be done. But this is a strong sign from Vedral, Wimsatt and the state of Rutgers’ quarterback battle.
