While many people look at Texas, California, Louisiana, and Florida as the key states in the recruiting wars. Some people forget about New Jersey and all of the talent that we have produced.
North Jersey has the likes of Don Bosco, St. Joe's, and Bergen Catholic and has been a popular place for the recruiters to visit. A look around college football and you figure out that New Jersey can put a great team with all of the talent that they have, despite being one of the smallest states in the union.
Here is a break down of a State of New Jersey football team:
RB: Knoshawn Moreno, Georgia (pictured right)
WR: Tiquan Underwood, Rutgers
WR: Dorien Bryant, Purdue
WR: Duval Kamara, Notre Dame
TE: Mike Ragone, Notre Dame
OL: Phil Trautwein, Florida
OL: Anthony Davis, Rutgers
OL: Eugene Monroe, Virginia
OL: John Rochford, Miami
OL: Pedro Sosa, Rutgers
DL: Kade Weston, Georgia
DL: Jonal Saint-Dic, Michigan State.
DL: Dwayne Hendricks, Miami
LB: Brian Cushing, USC
LB:Brian Toal, Boston College
LB: Nick Macaluso, Stanford
DB: Myron Rolle, Florida State (pictured right)
DB: Malcolm Jackson, Ohio State
DB: Anthony Scirrotto, Penn State
DB: Jason McCourty, Rutgers
This is a team that would beat almost all of the states. Just think if most of these kids including Moreno, Cushing, Jackson and Scirrotto went to the State University of New Jersey, they would have the makings of a BCS Bowl team.
