A little confusion is beginning to set in with one of New Jersey's top players. With more than 35 official offers and more to come over the next few months, offensive lineman Nyere Aumaitre of Blackwood (N.J.) Woodrow Wilson is not sure about his favorites anymore.
"I'm really not sure about my favorites right now. The schools that are up on the top are still there, but I have no one school that leads."
Since Sept. 1, Aumaitre has received to many calls to count.

"I haven’t been home much, but my mother is leaving me messages from the schools that called."
Rutgers, Tennessee, North Carolina, Boston College, Pittsburgh and many others have all tried to contact the 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive lineman.
"My top schools have been the ones that I always had an interest in, but things might change some. I need to find the school that really wants me, not the school that I really like. I've had Ohio State as one of my leaders, but they are one school that hasn’t offered, so I’m losing interest in them. Everyone thinks that I like Nebraska the best, but I don’t have a number one."
So what are Nyere's favorites?
"The schools that I think are recruiting me the hardest will be my favorites. Rutgers, UNC, Pitt and Nebraska are the ones that kept in contact the most over the summer. Now that coaches can call, I'll see how that goes."
Nyere will take all of his official visits and hopes to do that during the season.
"I would like to get to a few campuses and watch a game or two. I'm not sure how much time I'll have during the season to do that. Like I said, I’m going to monitor all my calls and try to weed out the schools that I feel want me the most and then I’ll decide what schools I’ll visit.”
