Vanderbilt, Penn State, Harvard, Cornell and Penn
On Rutgers and their early season performances
"I think they played Tennessee real well. I was surprised that they lost to Villanova. I think that in a couple of years they will turn around the program and head in the right direction. If they offered, I would consider. I'd look more deeply into their academics and into the football program"
First games this year
"The first game against Vineland I did really well. I had around half a dozen pancakes blocks and I had two forced fumbles on defense. I also had eight tackles and I had a sack. I was sick against St. Joe's and I could only play a quarter and a half. Against Buena, I had a couple of pancake blocks and about five or six tackles on defense."
"I have an official visit with Vanderbilt on October 26. I'll probably take a couple to the Ivy league schools. If I get other division one offers, I'll probably take visits to those schools. I am planning on going to a couple of games. I saw UConn play Georgia Tech. I was at the Princeton game against Lafayette last Saturday. Next week I am going to see Penn play. I'll go see Cornell at the end of October."
Josh is a superb student with a 1300 on his SAT and GPA of 4.16 on a 4.0 scale due to his taking advance placement classes. He'll be an engineering major in college. As is common with offensive linemen a number of schools are asking him for his senior tapes just as soon as he gets them. With his combination of academic and athletic prowess, he will probably pick up some more offers about three games his senior season is over.
