Tyler Kroft is the 19th best prospect in Pennsylvania by one list. Oh look, here's the definitive Kroft article.
Chevelle Buie's Manatee team traveled up to Pittsburgh to blow out Woodland Hills 35-7. The early comments there aren't impressive, although he managed to find the endzone.
This Ledger video mentions Andrew Campolattano's prowess as a wrestler, and also that Daryl Stephenson is an excellent kicker.
Quentin Gause has a target on his back as he plays running back for Bishop Kearney.
Here's a Q&A with Kevin Snyder.
Mike Bimonte's penchant for come from behind rallies make him the "complete package".
On one hand, damn it. On the other, you wonder if this news will scare away other teams from NJ OL Josue Matias.
Does this Florida writer know something that Rutgers fans don't about NY DE Ishaq Williams (who's also featured in this NY Post piece)?
The feeling is that Rutgers holds the advantage because of how close it is to his home. He’s been there multiple times in the last year.
It's true that he hasn't been saying anything, but as much as Rutgers needs DEs, don't hold your breath. Another shaky report is this blurb about NJ RB Savon Huggins, if you give any credence to what Tom Luicci said last week on Rivals Radio.
Is Rutgers in the recruiting hunt for Savon Huggins?
Very much so, although Pittsburgh, in many quarters, is considered the front-runner
Speaking of that team with the world's worst defensive back coach, their staff is usually very loose-lipped with leaking to the media. Curmudgeon Paul Zeise thinks they're in the top two or three for NJ OL Keith Lumpkin. As long as we're talking St. Peter's Prep, S Sheldon Royster plans to take his visits later in the year.
The Ledger ranks the state's top QBs (with Nova 1, Bimonte 3, and McEvoy 4). Miles Shuler-Foster is third, and that article lists these favorites.
He has been contacted by 23 colleges and has narrowed his list to Notre Dame, Nebraska, Rutgers, Florida, Northwestern, Pitt and Michigan.
The top three RBs are Huggins, Davis, and Martin. They will have more HS coverage in the coming days.
NJ QB Tanner McEvoy was apparently watching South Carolina on television last Thursday. NJ WR Damiere Byrd and Kaiwan Lewis were mentioned too.
What's with this Chesapeake Bowl, and why is NJ TE Jack Tabb playing in that instead of the NJ vs. the NE game? Well, actually players can play in two all-star games IIRC, but still. One paragraph in that article has an update of substance.
Here's a tamper-riffic interview with 2012 NJ LB Kaiwan Lewis.
PA OG Brandon Clemons is naming six finalists.
Clemons has narrowed his choices to Pitt, Boston College, Maryland, UConn, Rutgers and South Carolina.
So much for not narrowing down his list.
Probable future commit FL CB Jonathan Aiken missed Chaminade's opener. Rutgers has offered 2012 FL WR Fred McRae and 2012 FL OL John Theus. FL ATH Kevin Grooms isn't saying much.
Recruiting rankings are biased in favor of the southeast.
Finally, some forward thinking is helping the local talent pool (including 2012 NY S Wayne Morgan).
Watchlist: This is a section of this site's weekly recruiting posts featuring links to players that Rutgers may or may not be showing interest in, but has not yet offered.
Ronald "Duke" Baines, Dexter Bridge, Steward Butler, Lorenzo Fisher, Keith Foster, Bryan Jollie, Corey Majors, Dorian Miller/Delon Stephenson,and Kyle Wiggins.
