Pa. LB Corey Majors Still on Rutgers Radar?

Neshmaniny High (Langhorne, Pa.) linebacker Corey Majors was getting major interest from Rutgers in the spring, but that was before the Scarlet Knights secured commitments from three highly-sought linebackers. Is Majors still dealing with the Scarlet Knights? The 6-foot-1, 225-pounder spoke with about his recruitment, and what is happening.

Corey Majors is healthy, and ready to prove to programs is a major Division I talent after spending the 2009 season on a bad hamstring.

The Neshaminy High (Langhorne, Pa.) middle linebacker was getting recruited hard by Rutgers in the spring, but after a trio of linebacker commitments, the Scarlet Knights are not pursuing him as aggressively, but the staff continues to stay in contact with him.

Majors holds offers from Minnesota, Temple and Villanova, and is also hearing from Rutgers.

"It's the same schools, but I'm hearing the most from Temple and Villanova," the 6-foot-1, 225-pound Majors said. "Rutgers said they want to see what I do during the season, but a couple of other schools that were, they already got a couple of commitments, so unless something happens there, then I won't be there."

Majors made approximately 50 tackles last season, but his athletic prowess as not on display because of injury that kept him well below 100 percent on the field.

"It was a hamstring that bothered me all season," he said. "I played through it, and toward the end of the season it started to get better. I wasn't able to move around too fast. Last year I was getting caught up with linemen. I couldn't get off linemen, and things like that."

Many programs told Majors they wanted to see how he played his senior season, and would make a determination at some point in the fall whether to offer him.

"I look at it as good and bad," Major said. "I just think it's to make sure that there's no lingering problem and I can really play."

While Majors spent most of his time playing middle linebacker, he does move around within the linebacker corps.

"On certain coverages, they actually put me at (weakside)," he said. "All the schools are looking at me as linebacker. I think they want to see me in pass coverages and things in space."
