On a busy recruiting day for Rutgers coach Kyle Flood, he spent 10 minutes on a teleconference with the media to discuss a handful of football topics. Flood formally announced two scholarship additions to the 2013 training camp roster in cornerback Lewis Toler and punter Nick Marsh.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood announced to significant roster additions Wednesday during a conference call. Adding potential starters at cornerback and punter, Flood formally announced the enrollment of Western Michigan transfer Lewis Toler and Colorado transfer Nick Marsh.

“They certainly will both have a chance to impact us immediately,” Flood said. “When you take a fifth-year player for one year, you have to put them in a position to do things that will allow them to showcase their abilities. There’s a reason why these two players chose Rutgers and there’s a reason why we recruited them. Certainly we have a need in both spots that I think we helped ourselves in. I think from their perspectives, they see opportunity.”

Toler joins the program as a fifth-year transfer from WMU. He received a release from the school during an offseason coaching change and has one year of eligibility.

Toler started 36 games for Western Michigan. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound corner hails from New Castle, Del.

“I think [Toler] is really going to help us solidify, what right now, is an inexperienced back end,” Flood said.

Marsh transfers from Colorado and projects as the starting punter following Anthony DiPaula’s spring transfer. Marsh is also a top contender to take over kickoff duties for Rutgers in 2013.

“We look forward to trying him at both of those spots and seeing if he wins both of those jobs,” Flood said.
