NCAA Football: Morgan State at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

As we watch the Scarlet Knights week in and week out, we will continue to check in on the Knights of the future to track their success on the high school gridiron. The highlighted Class of 2018 commits will be listed in order of ranking, according to 247Sports. Here are how some of them performed this past weekend.

Artur Sitkowski - 4* Pro-Style Quarterback, IMG Academy (FL)

Sitkowski once again came in the game for mop-up duty and played well in his limited time. In a 48-0 win over Bishop Sullivan, the mobile QB scored rushing touchdowns of one yard and 11 yards to help seal the victory for his team.

Paul Woods - 3* Wide Receiver, Canisius (NY)

Woods had one of his best games in recent weeks, pushing his team to a 55-16 victory over Cardinal O’Hara. Woods made the most of his three catches, converting two of them into touchdown. The wide receiver chipped in on defense as well, registering one pass defensed.

Jayden McDonald - 3* Outside Linebacker, North Gwinnett (GA)

McDonald was sensational on defense for North Gwinnett in their 55-7 win over North Forsyth. The defensive stalwart stuffed the stat sheet with four tackles, one sack, and to top it off, an interception returned 45 yards for a touchdown.

Avery Young - 3* Cornerback, Coatesville Area (PA)

Young contributed on both sides of the ball this weekend, leading his team to a 61-35 win over Downington East. The versatile athlete pushed the score to 27-7 with a 20-yard touchdown grab and then later iced the game in the fourth quarter with an interception to seal the win.

Jarrett Paul - 3* Cornerback, Paramus Catholic (NJ)

Paramus Catholic got off to a great start in their playoff run, beating St. Joseph (Metuchen) 35-7. While Paul didn’t stuff the stat sheet, he was excellent in coverage for a defense that held their opponent to just one score on the day.

Travon King - 3* Wide Receiver, Woodrow Wilson (NJ)

King continued his dominate senior campaign in a 46-14 win over Deptford this past weekend. On offense, the wide receiver reeled in four catches for 63 yards, including touchdowns of 10 and 17 yards. Defensively, King was a menace in the defensive backfield, picking up four tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Zamir Mickens - 3* Defensive Back, St. Peters Prep (NJ)

Mickens is just the latest Rutgers commit to help their team earn a victory while contributing on both sides of the ball. In a 41-18 victory over Don Bosco Prep, Mickens played his normal safety position well while also gaining 42 yards on the ground on eight carries.
