Bloomington, IN—The top three newcomers for the 2017 Rutgers Scarlet Knights:

1. Kyle Bolin, QB- 

The 23-year old Kyle Bolin is a graduate transfer from Louisville who should be an immediate upgrade over returning quarterbacks Giovanni Rescigno and Zack Allen (who was lost to an ACL tear in the spring). The fifth-year senior played in 15 games, starting six, for the Cardinals when he threw for 2,104 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions before losing out to Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. Bolin has completed 58.3 percent of his passes in his career. Barring an injury, he should be under center when Rutgers hosts Washington in week one.

2. Bo Melton, WR- 

Outside of Janarion Grant, Rutgers lacks the big play receiver who can score from anywhere on the field. Incoming freshman Bo Melton should help provide that spark. The four-star recruit is only 5-foot-11, but has elite speed and could be competing for a starting role before you know it.

3.  Tyshon Fogg, LB- 

Aside from having a great football name, Tyshon Fogg is another four-star recruit who can impact this team early on. At 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds, Fogg has the size to jump right into the Big Ten. Fogg will have to jump a few upperclassmen, but if he shows well and Rutgers is looking ahead to 2018, he is a player whose playing time will increase.
