Big Jersey Back Lists His Top 3

Jaslee Rouson is a big running back for The Hun School in Princeton. Rouson attended one college game this year, and he names three schools at the top of his list.

"I went to the Rutgers-Villanova game," said Jaslee Rouson. "It was amazing. I had an awesome time. The facilities were amazing. They are a program on the rise, and I love the coaching staff."

"I will definitely take an official visit to Rutgers. I talked to Coach Susan about that the other night. He wants me to come one of the first three weeks of December," Rouson added.

Rouson has built a special relationship with Coach Susan and the Scarlet Knights hope it will pay off in a big way.

"Coach Susan is amazing," he said. "He is a great guy. I like him whole lot. He always wants to hear everything I have to say. He speaks very highly of his players. Every time I talk to him he always seems like he has a purpose in everything he says. He is a very respectful man. I have met with him about fifteen times."

The three-star running back is trying to stay focused on his senior year instead of giving all his attention to the recruiting process.

"The main schools on my list are Colorado, UNC and Rutgers," Rouson said.

"I am open to everyone, but those schools have always been at the top of my list. My main focus is finishing strong academically. I am doing the best I can. College football will come to me, but I have to stay focused on my grades. I have the SAT scores. I want to keep my GPA up and not slip at all."

"I have family all over the place. I have a lot of family and friends here in New Jersey if I went to Rutgers. I have family members in North Carolina, and my dad graduated from Colorado," Rouson said when asked if distance would play a factor in his decision.

Rouson and his teammates including the nation's top recruit Myron Rolle suffered their first loss of the season last week. They are ready to bounce back this week as The Hun School hosts Penn Charter.

"We are ready to go this week," said Rouson. "We have our legs back under us. We had a little bounce in our step this week. We are hungry. We should not lose another game this year. We are looking forward to winning the championship."
