The little town of Keyport, N.J. has a wide receiver that is a big-time college recruit.
JJ Bedle stands 5-foot-10, 175-pounds but plays much, much bigger. He already has three offers as Rutgers, Syracuse and Indiana all want the explosive wideout, especially after he ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash at a recent Nike combine.
"The recruiting process is going well although I thought I would have a few more offers by now."
Right now JJ is listing Michigan, Tennessee, Syracuse, Rutgers, NC State and Boston College as his favorites.
Bedle has already been to Miami this past Spring and might be making one-day appearances at a few camps if possible
"I'm hoping to get to a few camps, but I'm not sure about them yet. I was thinking about going to camps where schools haven’t offered yet like Michigan, NC State, BC and Tennessee, but I know I can’t get to all of them."
If JJ is unable to attend a few camps this summer, he's hoping that the schools will come calling anyway.
"I think if your good enough the schools will find you. I really don’t hear much from Michigan or Tennessee, but I’m hoping they notice me soon."
After the numbers he put up last season (53 catches, 1,051 yards and 15 touchdowns), a blazing 40-yard dash time and a 40-inch vertical jump, it's bound to happen.
"I wish I could go perform in front of some of these teams. I want to show them my speed, hands and jumping ability, but I just don’t know how I could get to some of these camps, they are just too far away."
One school that Bedle might be able to camp at is Boston College.
"I like BC a lot, and that's one of the camps I might be able to make for a day. I know that coach Bill Mcgovern saw me at the Rex-Plex combine last month and was excited with what I can do. I'm trying to work out going up there maybe the last session at the end of June."
