Myles Nash, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound senior-to-be at Timber Creek High School, has accepted a football scholarship to Rutgers.
Nash played defensive end and was the backup quarterback for the 12-0 Chargers. He said he was recruited to play outside linebacker at Rutgers.
West Virginia, Clemson, Purdue, Kentucky were among the schools he was considering, according to Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson.
At Rutgers, Nash will play alongside 2012 Timber Creek graduate Quanzell Lambert, a two-time Inquirer all-South Jersey linebacker.
"We are great friends, and Quanzell being there was a factor in my decision," Nash said. "I also like the way Rutgers preaches family. It reminds me of Timber Creek."
