Scout.com continues its in-depth look at New Jersey's 2013 class by breaking down "35 Prospects to Know" as the combine circuit gets ready to begin.

25. DB Anthony Cioffi, 6-foot, 195

The speedster from Group 1 Jonathan Dayton High (Springfield, N.J.) will be one to keep an eye on as a dark horse. Cioffi stars at quarterback and corner for Dayton and runs with 4.4 speed.

24. WR John Tsimis, 6-0, 175, Bergen Catholic

Tsimis made a name for himself as a junior for twice abusing Don Bosco cornerback Yuri Wright. The receiver uses his shiftiness to make up for a lack of size and led his team in receiving last year.

24. ATH Reggie Green, 6-3, 190, Cranford High

A quarterback and defensive back for Cranford his junior season, Green is a duel threat quarterback that led his team to an 11-1 record last season. Green ran for 1,523 yards and 18 touchdowns at quarterback and threw for another 800 and six touchdowns. Green has interest from Rutgers, but more as a defensive back or wide receiver.

23. CB Anthony Averett, 6-1, 178, Woodbury Junior-Senior High

Starting defensive back and quarterback for Woodbury, Averett will be one of the rising stars to watch out of South Jersey this season. He projects as a cornerback or running back at the college level.

22.WR Kyle Queiro, 6-3, 190, Bergen Catholic

Not as productive as Tsimis, Querio has the physical tools colleges like in a receiver. He has the prototypical size of a college receiver and is getting interest from Rutgers and other schools in the area.

21.CB Kyle LaPorte, 5-10, 165, Piscataway Township High

LaPorte made the marquee play of the Chiefs' state-title win at High Point Solutions Stadium this year, with the interception to set up the game-winning touchdown. Size concerns have kept LaPorte from earning a verbal offer but Rutgers is in constant contact with Penn State and Virginia also showing interest.

20. LB Brandon Bell, 6-2, 215, Oakcrest

Bell projects as a middle linebacker and claims a verbal scholarship offer from Northwestern. Rutgers and Connecticut are also in contact with the South Jersey standout.

19.WR Charlie Callinan, 6-4, 200, St. Peter's Prep

Callinan has had a Rutgers verbal offer in his pocket for more than six months, but is receiving interest from most schools in the Northeast and can expect the offers to increase when he hits the camp circuit. Callinan is close friends with Boston College signee Michael Giacone.

18.WR Ricky Juene, 6-3, 200, St. Joseph-Montvale

Juene and Callinan will battle it out for the best college prospect in the Garden State out of the wide receiver position. A star of last year's 7-on-7 at Rutgers, Juene finished his junior season with 805 yards and 12 touchdowns.

17. CB Tre Bell, 5-11, 170, St .Peter's Prep

A rising impact player for the Marauders, Bell is a known commodity to colleges in the area after playing in the same secondary as Sheldon Royster and D.J. Singleton. South Carolina, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Rutgers are all in contact with Bell.

16. OL Marcell Lazard, 6-5, 280, Bloomfield

With verbal offers from Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia, Lazard shapes up as a top tackle prospect in New Jersey. He does not yet have an offer from Rutgers, but is quite familiar with the program from camps, unofficial visits and contact with the staff.
