Football: Top recruits, class of 2013
Timber Creek's loaded junior class will form the foundation of what should be a stacked recruiting class in South Jersey next year.
The Chargers, likely the preseason No. 1 team -- although a lot can happen between now and September -- might have the state's top recruit in the class of 2013 in defensive tackle Greg Webb.
Unless it's Eastern cornerback Eli Woodard.
Webb has 23 offers, according to Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson. Alabaman, Michigan, Tennesse, Penn State, Rutgers -- they all want him.
Woodard, who like Webb has accepted an offer to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio in January, has around 20 offers. He's leaning toward Ohio State, but don't count out Notre Dame or Rutgers. Alabama has offered, and Michigan and Southern Cal called Eastern coach Dan Spittal this week.
Timber Creek junior defensive end Dajaun Drennon has around 15 offers, including Penn State and Rutgers. The Chargers' other defensive end, Myles Nash -- who probably will play quarterback next season -- has offers from Boston College, Kentucky and Rutgers.
Timber Creek junior cornerback Eric Church has an offer from Duke and also is drawing attention from Army and Navy. He has a 4.0 GPA, according to Hinson.
Williamstown linebacker Buddy Brown has around 20 offers, with Penn State hot on his trail and Camden Catholic linebacker Jarred Alwan is likely to draw interest from major programs as well.
Here's some other top prospects in South Jersey's class of 2013. And this is only a partial list and in no particular order:
Rashad Kinlaw, QB, Absegami
