New Jersey Star Attracting Numerous Offers

West Virginia has a solid recruiting history in the state of New Jersey, and this year's class has several targets that are getting the Mountaineers' attention.

Camden Catholic's Quran Barge is a tailback/safety who has earned numerous regional honros, and as a result has garnered scholarship offers from a number of schools.

Barge originally played at Haddon Heights before transferring to Camden Catholic as a junior, but he certainly didn't get lost in the shuffle. He earend all conference honors as a freshman wide receiver, then backed that up with all conference and second team all South Jersey honors at running back as a sophomore.

After transferring to Camden, he was an all group 4 pick as a junior, where he helped his team into the playoffs, and was again an all conference selection.

At six feet and 205 pounds, Barge has played a number of positions, including wide receiver, running back and safety during his high school career, and has the multi-position potential that draws the eyes of many recruiters, including those of the WVU staff.

"I'm a physical player," Barge said. "I don't really care where I play, as long as I'm on the field."

Barge's summer plans have not been finalized yet, as he has numerous offers from which to choose.

"I haven't made up my mind yet on camps, but I'm going to try to visit several," Barge said. "I have offers from Nebraska, Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, West Virginia, Oregon, Michigan State and Virginia."
