The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Nwosu spent Tuesday working with tight ends coach Brian Angelichio in an effort to show he is worthy of an offer.
"It went well," Nwosu said. "They said I was probably the best at my position. I was catching every ball, every pass that came to me. They said I did really well. That's what the receivers coach and tight ends coach said to me."
Nwosu demonstrated soft hands and a willingness to be physical in his blocking.
"I think I showed them that I'm an explosive blocker," Nwosu said. "I showed I can catch the ball and have soft hands and make a lot of plays on the ball."
Nwosu has come onto Rutgers' radar recently, and made a last-minute decision to travel 3½ hours north to camp and see the campus.
"(Assistant) coach (P.J.) Fleck was telling me that I had a great day and they're going to talk about me when they get together and then he would call me back," Nwosu said. "I really feel I did real well. I felt I was pretty much on top of my game."
After finishing the afternoon session of the camp, Nwosu had a chance to look around the facilities.
"We saw the weight room, and that was nice," Nwosu said. "They have a track in there so they can practice their 40 (yard dash) in there. It's real nice."
Next on Nwosu's agenda is a July trip to Virginia.
