NUC Sports High School Football State Rankings – New Jersey


The Garden State has averaged 48.4 FBS signees per recruiting cycle from 2008 to 2015. Version 1.0 of the 2017 NUC Sports New Jersey State Player Rankings starts off with a Top 40.

Starting the year off in the #1 spot is two-way standout Markquese Bell of Bridgeton. Last year he led the Bulldogs with 1,000 all-purpose yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively he recorded 60 tackles, nine PBU’s and two INT’s.

Coming in at #2 is offensive lineman Micah Clark of St. John Vianney. As a junior he helped lead the Lancers to an (11-1) record. This athletic lineman also recorded 31 tackles and eight TFL’s in 2015.

Paramus Catholic plays one of the toughest schedules in the country. So it should come as no surprise that outside linebacker Drew Singleton makes his entry at #3. Singleton possesses the ability to run sideline to sideline covering mass real estate with his long elegant strides.

The New Jersey State Rankings will be updated and expanded one more time prior to Signing Day 2017.
