Shuler actually played quarterback in high school, and proved to be a Michael Vick like dual threat.
He threw for 1,113 yards and 14 touchdowns, as well as rushing for 1, 017 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Shuler is a burner, running an impressive. 4.38 40 yard dash, which explains why he is so effective when flushed out of the pocket.
Rutgers was not interested in using Shuler as a QB since they recruited Don Bosco’s Gary Nova, and of course Chas Dodd is still around.
Shuler was also not terribly accurate in college, only completing a little over than half his passes his senior year.
Nonetheless, he is still immensely talented and is a threat to find the end zone anytime he touches the football.
Rutgers propensity to use the Wild Knight formation last season is something that really needs to have Shuler incorporated into.
He is a perfect candidate for this offense since he is very quick runner, but can still catch defenses off guard by throwing passes, something he has done hundreds of times up to this point in his career.
If used correctly, Shuler should be for Rutgers what Brad Smith is for the New York Jets.
