Adjepong Loyal to Rutgers?

"Rutgers is another school that's in the race. I'm not like most kids from my state who are afraid to go there or feel like out of state schools are better..."

Jason Adjepong, the talented linebacker out of Carteret, New Jersey, was expecting a scholarship offer this week from Penn State, but after the end of the week he ended up with 3 new scholarship offers, so who offered?

"I got offers from Virginia Tech and Boston College on Friday, and Penn State now."

Adjepong said about Virginia Tech, "I love the area down there even though I don't know much in detail other than what I see on TV, I do know they won the ACC last year and that's a turn on."

About Boston College: "I know that they have Toal there and he started as a freshman so that shows me they are not afraid to play talent."

What did Adjepong think about getting an offer from Penn State?

"I was very surprised when I got it, I thought it might not be coming, but I'm happy Coach Johnson is a man of his word."

Does Adjepong have a favorite at this point?

"No, there is nobody really in the lead right now, my Top five constantly changes."

Is Virginia still in it?

"Definitely, Coach Groh wrote me the other day and compared me to a player that he had a chance to coach, Teddy Bruschi. That was an honor and the detailed articled with personally highlighted points that came with it cemented the compliment. I could definitely see myself playing in those colors, playing on that field, with the faithful fans watching."

What about home state team, Rutgers?

"Rutgers is another school that's in the race. I'm not like most kids from my state who are afraid to go there or feel like out of state schools are better. I'm fiercely loyal of my home state and Rutgers has everything all Oklahoma's and Miami's have, and I think my presence along with the team's current chemistry would take them one step closer."

When asked what he thinks about Rutgers Head Coach Greg Schiano Adjepong said, "I think he is a great guy and I think he knows me for me and likes me for me and that's real important to me. I know that if I go there I will be comfortable playing under him and even though they are strict in academics I know I will leave with a degree and more importantly as a better person. He is the Head Coach I am most comfortable with."
