Talk about it in The Round Table


PISCATAWAY, NJ- The Rutgers campus was buzzing with young stars on Monday as its annual summer camp was in full swing. Top talent from up and down the east coast gathered in Piscataway, displaying an impressive array of skills. And while there was some solid players from the northeast, plenty of high profile players from the state of Florida offered up some highlight reel plays.

Wide receiver James Louis of Atlantic High brought up his extraordinary list of thirty-seven offers to Piscataway. The four star prospect will be trimming his list in the coming weeks and claimed that Rutgers is definitely being considered as on of the schools on that short list.

James LouisFour-star safety Brian Robinson was not the only talented St. Thomas Aquinas player to make the trip as he was joined by linebacker Garth Jobb and Vinnie Mauro, who currently holds a Rutgers offers.

Northwestern four-star prospect Michaelee Harris is already up to seven offers and was part of an impressive group of receivers, showing a nice combination of speed and athleticism.

Cocoa safety E.J. Johnson showed some nice skills and already has Rutgers ties as he is a former teammate of current Scarlet Knight David Rowe. Johnson was joined by Cocoa quarterback Matt Younger and both had the chance to spend some time with Rowe earlier in the day.

Three-star running back Donnell Kirkwood out of Atlantic High added to the pool of talent and showed surprisingly quick feet from someone of his size.

Boyd's Marcus Thompson was extremely impressive and already looked the part of a college linebacker. Thompson was a physical specimen at 6-foot-2 and 227 pounds and looked as though he carried more weight than that. Thompson, who also moved with great quickness, holds a pair of offers from Florida State and West Virginia.

There were also some local products that stood out as Rutgers commit J.T. Tartacoff and Union-Endicott's (NY) Jordan Thomas both tied for the fastest forty on the day. Thomas lined up all over the field and was effective no matter where he played. He displayed a rare combination of speed, size and agility and could wind up being one of the top running backs to come out of the northeast in the class of 2010.

Lawrenceville Prep quarterback Aaron Aiken threw a very nice ball and showed why should expect some offers to come his way in the near future.

Hamilton West offensive lineman Frank Quartucci became the first player to commit during the Rutgers Camp as he had announced his decision before the start of the night session.

There were also plenty of other talented players who are just starting to surface on the recruiting radar. Gaithersburg cornerback Axel Ofori enjoyed a strong showing as did Brookline (MA) athlete Irvin Scott and Westwood (FL) safety Jameson Wright.

Attending but not participating was 3-star Miami running back Corvin Lamb, who spoke highly of his Rutgers experience thus far. Stopping in for only a day of camp were receivers William Martin of Burlington Twp. and Tanner McEvoy of Bergen Catholic.

The Rutgers Camp will continue into Tuesday with an action packed day and will then wrap up on Wednesday afternoon.
