Spotlight 2016: QB Sonny Abramson

SPARTA, N.J. – Pope John XXIII has at least three Division I bound seniors but the talent does not stop there. Quarterback Sonny Abramson already has two verbal offers going into his sophomore year and projects as one of the top recruits in the state in the 2016 class.

SPARTA, N.J. – Sonny Abramson goes into his sophomore season with Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII with Big Ten and American Athletic Conference scholarship offers. Recruiting is not a focus yet for Abramson, but the attention and visits are already underway.

Abramson is a multi-time visitor to Rutgers, including a training camp visit with his teammates two weeks ago.

"I feel very comfortable with Rutgers and my visit there [during camp] was awesome," Abramson said. "I watched their practice. I was impressed with the tempo and the way they worked with the quarterbacks."

Abramson visited on a day of crazy weather and said the program's quick reactions stood out. Surprise rain storms had Rutgers scrambling to get set up inside their indoor practice facilities.

"They were so quick about just getting everything set up and ready to go for their practice," Abramson said. "The rain didn't slow them down at all."

The 6-foot-2 Abramson earned his Rutgers offer during a spring visit to campus. He is one of three 2016 New Jersey quarterbacks with Big Ten offers from the Scarlet Knights, alongside Bergen Catholic's Jarrett Guarantano and Old Tappan's Jordan Fuller.

Tight end Ryan Izzo and receiver Noah Brown brought Abramson to his summer Rutgers visit and have both been helpful in his recruitment.

Izzo and Brown are both preparing to make their own college decisions with Rutgers competing for both.

"They brought me down with them to show me the place and hang out," Abramson said. "It's great to have them both because in two years I know they'll give me all the help I need in recruiting. They don't have someone like that right now, but I'll have both of them."

Abramson begins his sophomore season Sept. 12 when Pope John travels to Randolph.

"I'm just excited to finally get back going," Abramson said. "I know [Brown and Izzo] will make me look good. We're looking to compete for a state championship."
