Scouts: Barnwell fits at CB for Rutgers
By Tom Luginbill
While Nadir Barnwell (Piscataway, N.J.) shines as a dual-threat quarterback in high school, we believe his true home will be as a cornerback at the next level. In fact, he plays enough on defense for us to believe that the learning curve will be minimal. He adds toughness, explosiveness and savvy to an already stingy group on defense for the Scarlet Knights. The value of Barnwell for Rutgers is that he can play just about anywhere as a skill position athlete.
