Corey Brown has a rumored top 3.
Brown already has offers from almost every major program in the Big Ten, Big East, ACC and SEC, but these recent times could bring interest from numerous others. And while Brown is far from a decision, sources say Florida, Ohio State and Rutgers seem to be slightly ahead of the pack, followed closely by Florida State, Clemson, Penn State, West Virginia and Alabama. Brown hopes to narrow his list to eight to 10 schools over the next few weeks and hit numerous camps this summer.
OL Danny Foose (6-6 310) of Paramus, NJ says it would be an honor to play for Coach Steve Spurrier. "He's a great coach and has been for a long time," he said. "It would be an honor to play for him." Foose says that USC told him they are looking to take five to six offensive linemen in this class. "They told me they are set at the skill positions," he said. "They said they just need to get some guys in to play on the line. That's pretty exciting for a Jersey boy like me." Foose has offers from USC, Rutgers, BC, Louisville, South Florida, Minnesota, Illinois, Akron, and Stanford. He says he is also hearing from Penn State, North Carolina, Pitt, and Florida. Foose took four junior day visits to Rutgers, BC, Penn St, and Maryland. "Rutgers and BC really stood out to me," said Foose. "Rutgers is in my home state and has a family atmosphere that is comfortable. BC has a great tradition and outstanding academics." Foose says he will try to visit as many schools as possible that have shown interest in him this summer. He did not name any favorites.
All's still looking well with Doug Rigg.
"My favorites are probably Iowa and Rutgers so far," he said. "Of course, Rutgers is in Jersey and I’m real into trying to bring Jersey back. With Iowa, I really like the atmosphere and the coaches out there.
"I’ll probably try to visit Iowa sometime this summer, and of course I’m always going out to Rutgers. I think I’ll go to one combine … probably the Rivals combine. Then I’m going to camp at Boston College. I don’t know other than that. I’ll decide everything when we finish our final exams in two weeks."

DL James Kittredge (6-4 255) of Ramsey, NJ is the son of a former USC football player and has received an offer from the Gamecocks. "My dad played there in the early '70s," he said. "He tries to get back as often as he can for the alumni game." Kittredge says his family owns a condo in South Carolina and he has been to several football games. "I know how tough it is there," said Kittredge. "The atmosphere is intense and football is serious. It's also a really good school." Kittredge says that having a father who played at USC does not give them an advantage but he is still considering them. "Just because he played there doesn't mean I want to play there," he said. He has offers from USC, Vanderbilt, Duke, NC State, Michigan State, Rutgers, Louisville, Central Florida, Pitt, Maryland, Colorado, Virginia, and West Virginia. He took several junior day visits including Virginia, Duke, UCLA, UCF, Pitt, and Rutgers and said he liked them all. "They were all great," he said. "You cannot go wrong with a D-1 school." Kittredge says he does not have any favorites.
