Major(s) Pa. LB visiting Rutgers' Junior Day

Rutgers' Junior Day is nearly here, and there will be plenty of talent gathered for Saturday's extravaganza. Among the out-of-staters making the trip is Neshaminy High (Langhorne, Pa.) linebacker Corey Majors, who feels a special pull toward New Jersey's state university. Majors talks about his recruitment, Rutgers and much more.

Corey Majors may be playing football on the other side of the Delaware River now, but he was raised in Willingboro, N.J., and remains interested in some of the things the Garden State offers.

Including his home state's only FBS football program.

Now a three-star middle linebacker for Neshaminy High (Langhorne, Pa.), Majors is being recruited by a bunch of schools, including Rutgers, where he will be Saturday to enjoy the Junior Day event.

The 6-foot-1, 220-pounder's lone offer is from Pittsburgh, but plenty of schools are recruiting him.

"I grew up in New Jersey, that's my home state, I always liked their football team, and they also have the major I want to do,'' Majors said. "They have a good program for that, and I always liked their football program.''

Majors plans to study exercise science.

"I like it because it deals with the body, staying in shape, and nutrition and all that stuff,'' he said. "I like to stay in shape, and help other people get in shape. I help my dad stay in shape. I like helping people. I show him how to do everything we do at our school.''

Pittsburgh offered Majors during the season, but since the end of the season plenty of coaches stopped by Neshaminy to check him out.

"Purdue came by last week,'' Majors said. "They are showing a lot of interest.''

Rutgers, Boston College, Virginia, Penn State, Minnesota, Maine and Pittsburgh also checked in with Majors.

"They're all supposed to be coming back,'' he said. "I heard late this month (more offers could come). I definitely want a good program that wants to win. Somewhere I'm not going to sit. I want to go and play and make a difference on the team.''

Majors believes he has the speed and agility to play on the outside, but hopes to remain as a middle linebacker in college.

"I like stopping the run,'' Majors said. "It's almost like you decide the outcome of the game.''
