Holley annoyed that hometown Rutgers didn't recruit him

Jesse Holley hasn't forgotten a perceived slight that occurred four years ago when he was being recruited, and the memory could spark his play on Saturday in North Carolina's season opener against Rutgers. Holley grew up a short drive from the Rutgers campus in New Brunswick. He said that Rutgers ignored him during the 2002 high-school season and wasn't serious about wanting him, although he was one of the top receivers in the state and a SuperPrep All-America.
