NJ ATH gaining more interest

At 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, junior Dan Crimmins of Demarest (N.J.) is beginning to catch the attention of college recruiters along the East Coast. The big junior attended a few summer camps and has also taken a visit to a local school this fall.
"I get some letters and questionnaires," said Crimmins. "I'm not too sure who is showing the most interest, but I have mail from Rutgers and Boston College. I'd say Rutgers though."
Back during the summer Crimmins had the opportunity to attend two summer camps.
"I went to Boston College and Penn State," he said. "They went well. They were a lot of fun and had great competition. I learned some new techniques."
More recently, Crimmins made two visits to Rutgers to attend both a preseason practice and a game. While it's early he already has a few ideas of what he is looking for in a school.
"Somewhere not too far, and where I love the environment of the school," said Crimmins.
One of the intriguing things about Crimmins' game is his versatility, and while schools have not been specific as to the position they would like him to play at the next level, he also seems very open-minded.
"I'd be fine with playing receiver or tight end, or even on defense," said Crimmins.
This season at Demarest, Crimmins is seeing the majority of his playing time at both wide receiver and safety.
"I've been doing pretty well," he said. "I'm not positive on my catches and yards, but I know I have two touchdowns. I think I'm a much better all-around player than last season. I'm a better blocker now too."
