Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep has developed itself into a program that annually churns out BCS level talent. The Class of 2012 seems to be no different, which includes athlete Brandon Napoleon, who recently picked up his first offer from an ACC program.
"Recruiting is going very well," said Napoleon, who is 6-foot-0 and 175 pounds. "I get letters everyday from North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Temple, West Virginia, Miami, Rutgers, Syracuse, Penn State and Vanderbilt. I also just got invited to the Army All-American Combine in January."
The first school to pull the trigger with an offer is North Carolina, who Napoleon gave his thoughts about.

"I feel that they're a great academic school with a great football program," said Napoleon. "They play in a great conference. I like the ACC."
With his busy schedule, Napoleon has not had much of a chance to visit too many schools to this point. He is hoping to change that relatively soon though.
"Last spring I went down to West Virginia for their spring game," said Napoleon. "I will be going with my parents after this season to a few schools. I have been invited to all of the schools for their games, but because of my season, it's been hard setting up visits.
Specifically, Napoleon mentioned that he would like to visit West Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Rutgers and Oregon after his season.
On the field this fall, Napoleon has lined up mainly at quarterback, plus seen limited time at cornerback when called upon.
"The season is going great and everything is coming along well," said Napoleon. "I know my role. It's always great to have an All-American running back [Savon Huggins] to hand the ball off to, and it's great to have a good offensive line."
