I don't know if there is a connection between Sam Bergen's injury, and the decision to offer a scholarship to Sayreville LB Dave Milewski, but the timing is interesting, even if he grows into an end. Either way, he's the latest verbal commitment to Rutgers. NJ.com posted a Milewski highlights package last week. He wasn't really on the national recruiting radar until recently, so I don't know enough about Dave to give any further thoughts at the moment.
326 yards and 5 TDs for Chas Dodd on the week.
Jordan Thomas rushed for 155 yards and a TD as Union-Endicott topped Binghamton.
J.T. Tartacoff hauled in a touchdown grab in Montgomery's loss to Basking Ridge.
State of Rutgers is going premium soon, so you may want to read their recent articles on 2011 prospects Hakeem Flowers, Teddy Bridgewater, and Tanner McEvoy (unlike the first two, a realistic if not likely target) while you can. It'll be interesting to see how SoR compares with Rivals and Scout once their premium service goes online.
Per the premium sites, 2011 NJ athlete Damiere Byrd picked up a Rutgers offer. Standout shore RB Charles Davis is still high on Rutgers.
"Rutgers is definitely a favorite," he said. "Basically I’ve been really looking at them and Virginia. With Rutgers, the coaching staff is great from what I know about them. I’ve been around the campus a little bit and it’s very nice. I’ve heard they’re also strong in what I want to go to school for (criminal justice)."
Florida athlete Jeremy Deering injured his collarbone last Friday, and is set to undergo surgery next week. Per the report, one Rutgers assistant was in attendance on the night. DT Richard Ash visited UCLA over the weekend.
The latest update on Maryland DB Lorenzo Waters says he's open, and has only looked hard at Wake Forest.
Paul Franklin asks whether changing demographics in North Edison are hurting J.P. Stevens football.
Soft Minnesota CB verbal Jabari Price switched to UNC. FL DT Antonio Ford committed to Wake Forest. I'm not happy about TE Jarrett Darmstatter committing to BC. It's a hard sell when you're playing two freshmen, and redshirting two more, but I think he's going to be good. FL CB Keion Payne committed to Miami.
