Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph Regional three-star lineman Joshua Fedd-Jackson is focused on North Carolina, Rutgers and Michigan and likes all three for different reasons. The Scarlet Knights were an early offer for Fedd-Jackson, who has relationships in the program.
"It's home, so they're in my top three," Fedd-Jackson said. "I wouldn't have to worry about my mom not being able to make it to a game. We could have a lot of family see me play."
Rutgers brings proximity to home, but North Carolina is the most aggressive in recruiting, he said.
"North Carolina is showing the most love right now," he said. "I talk to the coach every day, literally every day that I can. We talk all the time. ... It's beautiful down there. I love it."
Michigan rounds out a top three for Fedd-Jackson, who said he has not heard as much from the Wolverines since the start of the spring evaluation period.
"That's a big-time football team right there and their coaching staff is great," he said.
Fedd-Jackson most recently competed at the Nike Opening regional camp, where he was one of the top five offensive linemen.
"The competition was really good," he said. "I enjoyed the chance to challenge myself. I went against some of my friends and people that I know. ... My boy Dalyn Wade-Perry is good."
Fedd-Jackson has no timetable for a decision, but wants a school that his family likes as much as he does.
"If my mom likes it, that's important," he said. "Everybody says that it should be your choice but if it's comfortable with my mom, then it's comfortable for me. Education is important."null
