2/17 Recruiting Update

Corey Brown may have Rutgers as an early favorite.

Brown will showcase his talents at the May 2nd NIKE Camp at Penn state and as far as offers is now up to 27 according to the ESPN 150 Watch List running back.

Ohio State, Rutgers, Florida and West Virginia are some of the schools to have already offered and ones in which Brown list as a few of his favorite schools.

Sharrif Floyd is blowing up.

The 6-foot-3 and 298-pound Floyd has scholarship offers from Penn State, UCLA, Rutgers, Wisconsin, Temple and Connecticut. He has visited Rutgers and Temple, and attended a junior day at Maryland.

Check out Dominique Easley's junior highlights.

Rivals reports that some of NJ's top prospects were at TEST over the weekend. The article notes that St. Peter's lineman Jake Kaufman now has a RU offer. Two other Florida DBs who showed up in the Rivals DB with RU offers last week were Mark Leal and Cody Riggs.

ESPN and the Miami Herald recently looked at the top players in southern Florida for 2010. DeJoshua Johnson is another player listed as having an offer.

Tennessee has offered Lynden Trail, who says that he's still open.

Gio Bernard likes Miami; RU didn't make his initial top four.

More offers for Gerald Christian, who grew up a FSU fan:

Florida, Florida State, South Florida, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky and LSU have also offered the highly coveted 2010 recruit who caught 27 passes for 318 yards (11.8 average) and three touchdowns last fall.

Gator Country takes a look at Chris Dunkley from the UF perspective. Dunkley is up to 30 offers.

Maryland receiver Brandon Coleman has an offer.

Bishop McNamara's Brandon Coleman picked up his seventh offer, from UConn, yesterday according to head coach Bryce Bevill. Coleman also holds offers from Maryland, Boston College, Rutgers, Virginia, Temple and Virgina Tech.

VT legacy Zach Zwinak keeps picking up offers.

Rutgers is monitoring Maryland lineman Robby Havenstein, along with local products Brandon Sacco, Quadir Pendleton, Michael Lisi, Matt Deiana, and Gary Scruggs.

Virginia lineman Zack McCray will be on campus this weekend.

Well, now we know who the #1 player in NJ is this year.

Bishop O’Dowd High football star Chris Martin is only a junior, but he has already mapped out a plan that would allow him to enroll in classes early at Notre Dame and it doesn’t involve him finishing high school in California.

The highly-recruited linebacker/defensive end, who orally committed to Notre Dame Feb. 4, said Wednesday that he could be leaving O’Dowd to attend Hun School of Princeton - a boarding school in New Jersey - for his senior year of high school.

Joe Paterno wishes that all you recruit-watchers would get off his lawn.

"Knowledgeable is not exactly the adjective I would use for recruiting gurus," he said when the subject came up last season. "You know, it's all gimmicks. It's all for the fans. 'So and so is the number one rated this' and so and so. We don't pay attention. I've never paid any attention to that, and I never will."

But speaking of the nitters,

Redd's running style, balance, build and speed elicit comparisons with Ki-Jana Carter. The Lions are considered to be at the top of his list, as well as those of St. Joseph's Prep lineman Seth Betancourt and Manheim Central defensive end/linebacker sack-monger Dakota Royer, recently ranked the No. 5 and 6 juniors in the state by Pittsburgh Sports Report.

I had already written off Dakota Royer to PSU, now it's official:

"Penn State, Pitt, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Illinois are probably my top ones right now," Royer said.

And who's going to recruit NJ for Virginia now that DC Bob Diaco is leaving for Cincinnati? And he was just promoted recently too.
