"I am being recruiting by UConn, Hofstra, Syracuse, North Carolina. I haven't heard from Rutgers in a while."
"Texas Southern is talking with me about a visit as is Southern Connecticut."
Alvin is a 6-2, 200 pound RB/FB/OLB with 4.5 speed. He recently transferred out of Clifford Scott HS to play for Montclair this year and while not many of the gurus have heard of him, college coaches are paying big time attention to him even this early on in recruiting season. Alvin has received early interest from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Miami, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Illinois, Michigan, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse and others.
Alvin impressed with his physique and athleticism at the "seven on seven" camp at Rutgers.
Alvin was recently named to MSG All Tri State area as a First Team selection. Alvin wasn't angry over the lack of attention despite the gaudy honors he has picked up: "It doesn't bother me. If I don't get a scholarship, I'll probably go to Fork Union. I hear that the whole ACC looks for players from there, so I could go there and just take it from there."
