Tall Sleeper WR to visit Rutgers

Aaron Weaver might be a new name to many but not on Long Island, where he has had an outstanding season in 2005.

In professional and collegiate football, big wide receivers have become the trend for many of the teams in these leagues. Players like Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Dwayne Jarrett, and Jeff Samardzija are some of the most elite players at the wide receiver position and are all taller than 6'2". At 6'3"-200lbs, Aaron Weaver easily qualifies as a big WR. Weaver used his 6'3" frame and 4.6 speed to register 800 yards receiving on 28 catches with 11 TDs. These numbers were good enough for him to be awarded the Dragon Award for the best WR in Nassau county. On defense, Weaver had the speed and agility to play CB and account for 3 INTS along with 35 tackles. His efforts helped his team to a 10-1 record and a Nassau County Championship. He was named to the All-Nassau, All-Long Island, and All-Tri-State teams.

These accomplishments have attracted the attention of Rutgers, West Virginia, Maine, and Hofstra. He has already visited Hofstra and will be visiting Rutgers on the weekend of January 20th. All of the schools are recruiting him as a WR.

On the basketball court, Weaver also excels as a shooting guard and small forward with an average of 16 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals per game. Last season, he was named all-conference.

Next week, Scout will provide an update on Weaver's recruitment.Stay Tuned...
