Rutgers redshirt freshman tight end Taylor Marini announced Monday morning on Twitter that he will transfer. "I have decided to transfer from Rutgers University and I look forward to pursuing my football career at another institution," Marini wrote. A three-star recruit from Oviedo, Fla., Marini didn't appear in any games last season. He was listed with a shoulder injury before the fourth game and eventually was ruled out for the season. With the graduation of tight end Paul Carrezola, Marini figured to be in contention for playing time opposite star tight end Tyler Kroft this season. Rutgers coach Kyle Flood praised Marini's progress early this spring, but Marini missed the final two weeks of practice and the Scarlet-White game due to a lower body injury. Rutgers has Kroft and sophomore tight end Nick Arcidiacono as its top two tight ends entering the summer. Redshirt freshman Matt Flanagan and freshmen Logan Lister and George Behr will also be in the mix. Lister is expected to be ready to contribute early in his career, but he missed the entire spring with a foot injury after enrolling early.
