Junior to Watch: Jermaine Dias
School: Hackensack, N.J.
Size and speed: Jermaine is 6-foot-2, 215 pounds and runs a 4.6 40-yard
Statistics: Last season Jermaine had 86 tackles with 23 of them for losses. He also registered 12 sacks and forced five fumbles.
Favorite schools: Although it's early in the recruiting process, Jermaine lists Rutgers, Boston College and Virginia as his favorites. He has offers from Rutgers, Boston College and Wisconsin so far. He has received letters from more than 40 schools and has taken unofficial junior day visits to Rutgers and Boston College. Dias hopes to visit a few more schools over the summer.
Skinny: One of the top players in the state of New Jersey, Jermaine is a great athlete with exceptionally quick feet and a great first step. He is the talk of many college recruiters and plays at a high school that is known for producing many D-1A football players.
Jermaine plays defensive end in high school, but should be moved to linebacker at the next level.
"I'm playing d-end, but if a school wants to make me a linebacker then that's fine with me. I just want to have a great senior year at defensive end and then I'll play anywhere a coach wants me to"
Look for this super athlete to have more than a dozen offers before the new season begins.
