A prospect's junior season is an important time in the recruiting process. That's when college coaches start to form their opinions and get an idea of who they will be recruiting over the next year.
Carlton Agudosi, a junior wide receiver from Franklin, New Jersey, has emerged as one of the top wide receivers in the Garden State this season.
Franklin High School is 4-1 on the year and Agudosi is second in the state in receiving yards with more than 440 on 19 catches with four touchdowns. Considering they have only played five games those are big numbers.
"They've mostly been underneath routes," he said of his receptions this year. "I'm averaging 24 yards a catch so I'm catching it and getting up the field."
Colleges are taking notice. Agudosi has been receiving mail from schools both near and far, including Rutgers, Temple, Boston College, Wisconsin, Nebraska and LSU.
"It's mostly been mail so far but I think LSU and one another school asked for my film," he noted.
Over the summer the 6-foot-6, 195-pound receiver attended a camp at Rutgers. While he got off to a slow start by the end of the event he had separated himself from many of the other receivers in attendance.
"I dominated there," Agudosi said, indicating that he doesn't lack in confidence. "At first I got off to a slow start but in the afternoon session I started doing really well.
"This year I'm trying to go to every camp I can just to get my name out there and prove myself against the best competition."
Though it's still early and we won't know which schools consider him a serious candidate for an offer until a long time from now Agudosi said his current favorites are Rutgers, LSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Temple.
