2006 Update: Jaren Matthews

<B>Don Bosco</B> QB looking at UVA

Don Boscoe Prep continues to be a hotbed of prep football talent as quarterback Jaren Matthews is getting lots of D-1 interest. Matthews is a drop-back passer type and is 6-foot-1, 195-pounds with a 4.9 in the 40-yard dash.

What are Matthews' favorites at this time?

"Right now I like Oklahoma, Virginia, Virginia Tech, NC State, and Louisville," said Matthews. "I have high interest in Virginia, I got to know Coach (Al) Golden when he was recruiting my cousin Marquis Liverpool.

Virginia is one of the top teams in the nation, they are one of the closer schools to New Jersey, and the weather is good for the most part."

Matthews has no offers at this time but playing for Don Bosco is high profile so he will get lots of looks from recruiters.

"I love pressure, I feel I play my best when the stakes are high and I make good decisions."
