Rutgers University football coach Kyle Flood announced Wednesday that there will be another newcomer on offense for the Scarlet Knights starting in the spring - Egg Harbor Township's Tejay Johnson.

Flood said during his national signing day news conference that the rising fourth-year junior will move to wide receiver starting in the spring.

"I think that will add another athlete for us over there, another long body who can run and catch," Flood said.

Johnson, the 2010 Press Athlete of the Year, has played cornerback, linebacker and safety. He has 46 tackles and a forced fumble in 25 career games.

Rutgers must replace starting receivers Quron Pratt and Brandon Coleman, who declared for the NFL draft.
