Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek has produced a number of BCS-level players in recent years, and they are likely to continue that trend. 2015 defensive back Kareem Ali already has two early offers, and is gathering serious interest from several top level programs.
Ali, 5-foot-11 and 176 pounds, has picked up offers from Temple and Old Dominion, but he believes more will be added to this total soon.
"Recruiting is moving along great," said Ali. "My coach tells me that a lot of schools have interest in me. Some big name schools at that."
These schools include Ohio State, Michigan, Rutgers, Penn State, Arkansas, Miami and Kansas. He hopes to stay busy in the coming months with camps and visits.
"I haven't fully decided on the college camps for the summer, but I'm definitely attending the Rivals Camp in Richmond, the Nike Camp in Washington D.C., along with some others," said Ali. "I'm definitely visiting Rutgers in early April, if not earlier, and I'm more than likely visiting Kansas and Ohio State as well."
At these camps, Ali has a few goals in mind.
"I want to prove that I'm the #1 2015 corner that's in the state and one of the best nationally, as they say I am," said Ali, who discussed how he plans to improve his game this off-season. "I'm on track right now to get way faster and stronger. I wanna improve on my off-man coverage, as I see that's my only weakness right now."
Finally, Ali was asked if he has been following any college programs in recent years.
"Yes, I've been following Rutgers a lot, Louisville a lot and Ohio State," said Ali.
