When the opportunity presented itself for a stop on Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh’s satellite camp tour to come to Paramus Catholic in New Jersey, school president James Vail had only one suggestion.
He wanted Michigan to invite Rutgers to be included at the June 8 camp. However, new Scarlet Knights coach Chris Ash declined.
Now, we know why: Ash announced Monday on Twitter that he and his staff will be joined by Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and his staff and Temple coach Matt Rhule and his staff at a camp of their own at Fairleigh Dickinson on the same day.
Ash is a former Meyer assistant at Ohio State.
The tweet dubs the event as the Rutgers Football Tri-State Showcase and notes it will be the “best camp on the East Coast.”
And now the question is which of the top players from New Jersey and beyond will choose the Rutgers camp and which will chose the Michigan camp.
