TV: Freshman RT Kaleb Johnson

Kaleb Johnson

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers returned to its winning ways with Saturday's 38-26 win against Ohio at High Point Solutions Stadium, and a big part of it was the play of freshman Kaleb Johnson. Not only was he making his first start as a Scarlet Knight, but he was making his debut, and afterward he talked about the experience, what went well, and what he needs to work on.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said he wanted to get Kaleb Johnson playing time in the first two games, but it didn't happen.

In Saturday's 38-26 win against Ohio, there was little doubt Johnson would make his debut.

Johnson started at right tackle, and spent the whole game there as he helped the Scarlet Knights rush for 159 yards and a score on 43 rushes. He also aided a line which yielded only one sack, and kept quarterback Chas Dodd from getting hit often.

Here is what Johnson had to say after the game. Recommended Stories
