Monmouth Junction (N.J.) South Brunswick athlete Jevon Tyree is one of New Jersey's top remaining uncommitted prospects and he has narrowed his focus when it comes to schools.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound three-star prospect spoke candidly about the recruiting process on Thursday night.
"The schools I'm still looking at and focusing on are Rutgers, UConn, Maryland and Georgia Tech," Tyree said.

Rutgers is a school that has moved up and down Tyree's list at various stages in the process. What is it about the Scarlet Knights that have them still in the hunt?
"Rutgers is still in the mix," he said. "They just really haven't been contacting me as much as those (other) schools have been. I just know Rutgers and I know how their process works. Just thinking about it for me, I think I would still be interested in them."
What about the other schools?
"I talk to Coach Bradford once a week from Maryland," he noted. "I would say Maryland and UConn have recruited me the hardest. Those two and Georgia Tech are just schools I feel comfortable with.
"Those top schools I definitely want to officially visit. I do want to take one to Rutgers. There are some other schools like Iowa and Minnesota that I'm looking at. I might like to visit them just to see what the outside world looks like."
Tyree said all of those official visits will probably come after his senior season is over.
"I won't have a decision anytime soon," he acknowledged.
The schools recruiting Tyree seem to like him as a cornerback and a return man, though there's an outside chance he could get time at receiver in college.
So far this year Tyree has four interceptions on defense and has scored four touchdowns on the other side of the ball.
