    For example, Kyle Freakin Wilson of Piscataway NJ went to Idaho.

    Really Kyle? Idaho? Idaho??! Wtf were you thinking?

    Not even USC, or Miami or Florida or Florida St. (all colleges I'd totally choose if I were a world class athlete), you went to freakin Idaho?

    Idaho?


    Gronk went to Arizona?

    This is the stuff I'm talking about.

      Some of them don't like staying in state. It happens.

          I remember reading something about him a while back and it said that he wasn't highly recruited coming out of high school. Appartently, Greg Schiano recruited him but it was very late in the process but Wilson had already fallen in love with Boise. I guess he was one of those guys who just slipped through the cracks.

            YEA man! We do it right here in NJ. Hence if we keep kids in state at Rutgers we'd be an excellent football team here. But all the bigger schools tap the talent here. Penn State, ND, UCONN, Florida schools, and Boston College. That's pretty much how it all works out here.

            But we produce damn good talent.

                I don't remember any high profile NJ recruit going to UCONN. ND, Penn State, and Pitt seem to be the 3 biggest robbers of NJ talent.

                  Florida schools too. Us Jersey boys love Florida.

                  For obvious reasons.

                    Yeah not high profile. Donald Brown left and turned into a very good RB for Uconn. Can't think of anyone else.

                        No they weren't. I was saying in general, NJ products are not uncommon. We have been producing good prospects for a while now.

                          To be fair, Brown was only a 3* recruit. He only received a handful of offers.

                            They are pretty high considering the state population, also when we think of VA NFL players we pretty much fuse together the whole DC Metro area which includes obviously DC and a lot of Maryland hot spots. More impressive is that the majority of Virginia talent stays in state at Vatech or UVA while the few that don't are because they are top 10 talent or they go to a VA pipeline school like Penn State.

                              Well be on the look out for Phillip Sims down in Bama, when McElroy leaves he's a 757 product.
