Jeff Zuttah, 6-4 1/2, 285, 4.9, OL, DT, Hun School, Princeton, NJ
Offensive Position/ Stats:
Over 40 pancake blocks last season
All Middlesex County and All Conference
Boston College, Rutgers, West Virginia, Temple, Michigan State, Iowa, Penn State, Kansas State and Colorado. Jeff is expecting an offer from Notre Dame as soon as they receive his transcript. He also is expecting a Miami offer to come soon in addition.
Penn State -"They have great academic support, great facilities, but I am not sure if I will stay close to home. I am definitely going to take a trip to the west coast. UCLA, Oregon, Washington and Stanford are some of the schools I like out west."
Will he make and early decision or a late one?
"I'll take all my visits unless I am blown away by one recruiting trip. If that happens I'll decide early but otherwise I'll take all my official visits."
Early in the recruiting season I was told by Chris Melvin to watch out for Jeff Zuttah who, he said, would be an outstanding offensive line prospect. Chris was right. Zuttah is regarded as one of the finest lineman in the State of New Jersey by college coaches recruiting New Jersey and his offers show it. Jeff told me that he is looking for a school with strong academics and that he is also looking for a place where he can get some early playing time. As to Rutgers, he noted that his list of official visits is up in the air. He has reserved one official visit for Penn State but rest are undecided as of this date.
