Defensive end Jason Adjepong received just about ever honor he could after a fantastic junior season, and he's being recruited by the top programs in the nation.
The 6-foot-3, 255-pound lineman from Carteret, N.J. runs the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds. As a junior he recorded 87 tackles, 12 sacks and 22 tackles for loss. For forced four fumbles, recovered four and returned one for a touchdown.
"I've got quickness for a defensive lineman," said Adjepong. "I use my hands well and I get good leverage on the offensive lineman I'm going up again. I just use my hands well and move my feet well. There's nothing in particular I feel like I have to improve on more than anything else -- I just plan on working on my game as a whole."

"Rutgers, Michigan, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Boston College, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee, Miami, UConn, Syracuse, Maryland, NC State, Nebraska, West Virginia and others," he said.
"There are a lot. I'm staying open at this point, so I don't have a favorite. I didn't really follow college football too much growing up, but I was a little bit of a Nebraska fan."
As a junior Adjepong was named all-state, all-group, all-conference, all-area, all-county and all-division.
