ScarletReport.com N.J. Rankings: 35-26

ScarletReport.com is here to rank the top prospects in New Jersey with the 2014 recruiting wave well underway. Looking at the 35 best college prospects in the state, here is a look at part one of what will be a five-part series through the week.

35.) ATH Marques Little, Williamstown (N.J.) -- Size is a concern with Little but his speed and wiggle has him early verbal offers from Old Dominion and Temple.

34.) RB Ray Lawry, Kingsway (Swedesboro, N.J.) -- Lawry is an all-purpose running back that turned heads with an impressive junior season complete with more than 2,000 yards and 33 touchdowns.

33.) S Mark Fossati, St. Joseph's (Montvale, N.J.) -- Fossati had a big junior season on the field for St. Joe's, winning a state title and recording 154 tackles in the process. The 5-foot-10 safety is still looking for his first offer.

32.) WR Zyaire Clemes, Trenton Central (N.J.) -- Clemes is a 6-foot-2 receiver with interest at primarily the FCS level. He has impressive track speed, which could earn him some strong interest on the camp circuit.

31.) RB Jamauri Bogan, Union (N.J.) -- Bogan won State Player of the Year honors as a sophomore with some huge rushing numbers at Union. At just 5-foot-7, 165 pounds however, size is a major concern at the next level. Bogan has six FBS offers, including one from head coach P.J. Fleck at Western Michigan and one from Georgia Tech.

30.) DE Chris Carter, Bridgewater-Raritan (Bridgewater, N.J.) -- Carter is a versatile athlete at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds and could project as a defensive end or tight end. Rutgers, Maryland, Temple and Georgia Tech are all possible camp destinations.

29.) G Lamond Bradford, Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) -- Bradford camped at Rutgers with his team as a junior and may do so again this year. He has an early offer from Temple and is getting interest from many others in the region.

28.) DE Anthony Gargiulo, Colts Neck (N.J.) -- Gargiuolo brings a lot of speed to the defensive end position and could also play running back at the next level. Team camps will be his chance to take the next step in his recruitment.

27.) DE Austin Stevens, Montclair (N.J.) -- Stevens camped at Rutgers as a tight end last year, but is being recruited primarily as a defensive end. He spent his sophomore season alongside Julian Pinnix-Odrick on the Montclair defensive line and has an offer from Massachusetts, where teammate Sam Zeff signed last month. More are expected as Stevens continues visits in the spring and summer.

26.) WR Tyrone Washington, Paramus Catholic (N.J.) -- Washington has a Rutgers offer and is one of the many impressive skill players returning to the Paladin's roster after a state title in 2012. Washington is a 6-foot-2 receiver with the ability to beat coverage deep and make big plays.
