Union HS LB Favors 2

Fans are well aware of one prospect that Rutgers is in hot pursuit of that attends Union High School (Union, NJ). However, besides Desmond Stapleton, there is another prospect, by the name of Isa Abdul-Quddus that has caught the early attention of the Rutgers staff.

Isa (pronounced Eesa) Abdul-Quddus weighed in at 6-feet-flat and 192-pounds at the recent Scout.com All-American Combine at Rutgers University. Participating as a LB, Isa topped all at his position with a 4.60 40-yard dash. Isa posted solid numbers throughout the testing period, including notching the second highest vertical jump (32.5-inches) and second highest standing broad jump (9-feet and 4-inches).

Recruiting is going pretty good," stated Isa. I don't have any offers but schools are showing interest."

The list of schools pursuing Isa include Temple, North Carolina, Rutgers, South Florida, and Connecticut.

Though early in the recruiting process, Isa states that he has two early favorites. The pair of schools that have caught his attention are Rutgers and Connecticut.

Rutgers: I went to take a visit for the Spring Game. I enjoyed everything but what really surprised me was how hi-tech everything there was. I also know a couple of players at Rutgers. I've talked to a couple of guys like Peter Tverdov and they just tell me how nice everything is and how the coaches are really cool.

Connecticut: I have visited Uconn. I like the Uconn campus because it seems so comfortable.

Though Isa favors a pair of Big East programs, he states that it is an ACC school that has been recruiting him the hardest.

"North Carolina is probably the school that's recruiting me the hardest," said Isa.

After his participation at the Rutgers Combine, Isa stated that he would attend and compete at the Elite College Combine as well. SOR.com will be in touch with the Union HS product in the near future to see how he fared.

Isa states that he plans on camping at the Rutgers camp in June and also plans on attending the Maryland camp.
