Prospects now on recruiting radar at New Jersey Rivals Camp Series
PISCATAWAY, N.J. – One of the best parts of the Rivals Camp Series presented by adidas is finding new prospects that don't have much going on in their recruitments. Here are 10 players from the New Jersey Rivals 3 Stripe Camp that shouldn't be under the radar any longer.
Bonhomme, a Canadian import, holds an offer from UMass but has the skill to attract additional suitors. The 235-pound Bonhomme has good size and plays with incredible aggression. On Sunday, he showcased explosiveness and a quick change of direction that allowed him to shine in one-on-one drills and the cat-and-mouse session. He’s in the process of finding an American high school to attend during his upcoming senior year.
Dancy earned his way to Sunday’s camp via Saturday’s Rivals adizero Combine. Dancy has impressive size for a cornerback and runs well. On Sunday, Dancy used his length and strength to his advantage, winning most of his one-on-one reps and containing a number of highly ranked prospects. Dancy is still in search of his first offer but has the tools to help a number of FBS programs. UMass and Boston College have made preliminary contact with the long corner.
It was a loaded quarterback group on Sunday, full of four-stars and Power Five commits, but McQuarrie's name hung around late into the discussion for the overall position MVP. The tallest quarterback in the group, McQuarrie displayed efficient arm mechanics, which is impressive for a tall, young passer. His size gives him easy power and the ability to hit all points on the field, yet he threw some of the best touch passes we saw all day. A little more consistency may have led to an MVP trophy, but the offers clearly are coming soon.
Any college coaches looking for a 6-foot-4, 237-pound freshman defensive end with great explosiveness? Mobley will be a heavily recruited prospect soon enough and he proved why on Sunday. He needs to get stronger, but his quickness and hand techniques already presented problems for many offensive linemen. Look for Mobley to start picking up offers this offseason or early in the upcoming season.
One of the day’s most impressive physical specimens, Pearcy looks like a college-ready middle linebacker and moves stunningly well for a player of his stature. He carries no bad weight and shined during position drills and one-on-one work. Pearcy carries offers from schools such as Bucknell, Holy Cross and Brown but has the tools to help larger FBS programs. He has the frame and the ability to land new offers as a senior and should see more opportunities come his way in the year ahead.
Quarshie is a well-known player already but colleges haven't pulled the trigger just yet. A big, strong lineman that could play on either side of the ball, Quarshie is very athletic and can get into the backfield quickly. There were very few offensive linemen that could slow Quarshie's pace, let alone stop his advance. Don't be surprised when offers start rolling in for Quarshie.
Raikes moves incredibly well for a 290-pound defensive tackle. He won a number of one-on-one reps using quickness, not strength, of which he also has plenty. A 2020 prospect. Raikes holds early offers from Temple and Baylor, but it seems obvious that those schools are just the start of a much longer list. Raikes should have no problem collecting offers from school representing any major conference.
Buffalo jumped out with an early offer for Veilleux, impressive considering Canadian prospects usually see their recruitments start later. The Ottawa native could end up transferring to the United States like four-stars Patrice Rene and Jonathan Sutherland. In the meantime, Veilluex is trying to generate exposure with appearance at events such as the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp, and he did that Sunday. His passes cut through the windy conditions as well as anyone's at the camp, and he ripped several impressive throws throughout the day.
Interior offensive linemen rarely draw many headlines but White will be a familiar name among college coaches soon enough. This strong, technically-sound lineman stonewalled many defensive tackles and showed the lateral agility to keep them in front of him. Look for White to open up a lot of running lanes for his running backs this coming season and offers should follow.
We first saw Woods at Saturday's Rivals adizero Combine, where he created a buzz by running back-to-back 4.45 and 4.41 40-yard dashes. Physically he also looked the part, measuring just shy of 5-11 with broad shoulders and a sturdy build. Going into Sunday we were anxious to see how those tools would translate against top wide receivers in the region and Woods held up very well, using his speed to get his hands on several passes. Woods holds offers from the Service Academies and several FCS programs, but that speed is likely to attract Power Five attention in the near future.
