Eugene Monroe (OL, 6'6"-330lbs, 5.2 forty) from PlainfieldHigh School in Plainfield, New Jersey
is one of the best offensive linemen in the country. He is a physical specimen.
For a man of 330lbs, he does not appear to have much fat on his 6'6" frame.
What is even more impressive is his intensity in the weight room and his focus
Currently, Monroe bench presses 345lbs. This is very
impressive for a 16-year old with 39-inch long arms. He plans on bench pressing
400lbs by the summer of his senior year. After watching his focus, I would not
bet against it.
Monroe continues to compile offers. At current count, he
had 18 written offers with numerous verbal offers. He lists his top five
schools as Notre Dame, Miami, Florida
and Rutgers. These schools are followed by Iowa, Maryland, PennState, Syracuse, and BostonCollege. His top five
schools are based on the relationship he has built with the programs and how
comfortable he feels with the respective staffs. He stated, "If I had to make a
decision at this point, these will be the schools that I would choose from".
He attended the Rutgers Junior
Day and found it to be a lot of fun. Although he has been on the campus lots of
times, he used the opportunity to meet a lot of the other players from around
the state; of which there were 102 recruits.
