Under Armour All-America Camp Series continues tour in New Jersey

This upcoming Sunday, the Under Armour All-America Camp Series hosts a regional competition at St. Joseph’s Regional High School (Montvale, NJ).

The event most recently took place at Elder (Cincinnati, OH) late last month and comes to a close in Baltimore during the first weekend of June.

Selected players are named to compete in the UA All-America Game and Future 50 in Orlando.

Here our a few prospects to keep an eye on at this weekend’s competition in New Jersey:

Justin Shorter

Justin Shorter WR South Brunswick (NJ)

At 6’4″ and 200-pounds, the Penn State commit may be the biggest wide receiver mismatch for the defensive back and linebacker groups to cover.

Shorter extended a verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions during early August and most recently made a pair of unofficial visits to Happy Valley last month, along with another in late-March, and three more this past Fall.

The 2018 prospect was named MVP of the wide receiver group following his performance at Nike Football’s The Opening Regional New Jersey.

He also holds offers from Boston College, Indiana, Miami (FL), Michigan, UNC, ODU, Ole Miss, Pitt, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Jayson Ademilola

Jayson Ademilola DL St. Peters Prep (NJ)

With over 20 offers heading into his senior year, Ademilola committed to Notre Dame this past June.

The 2018 prospect provides a presence on the interior of the line of scrimmage with the ability to contain the run game, while generating a pass rush.

Since extended a verbal commitment to the Fighting Irish, he has landed offers from ACC programs Duke, UNC and Clemson, as well as Alabama and Florida of the SEC.

Ademilola most recently made an unofficial visit to in-state Big Ten program Rutgers.

Justin Ademilola DE/LB St. Peters Prep (NJ)

The Notre Dame commit will likely work alongside his brother Jayson on the defensive line, with traits to make an impact in pass coverage as well.

Ademilola is a likely fit at as a 3-4 OLB, 4-3 DE, Nickel DE and Dime DE.

This type of versatility has generated 20-plus offers for the 2018 propspect.

He made an unofficial visit to South Bend three days prior to extending a verbal commitment to the Fighting Irish in late-June.

Dorian Hardy

Dorian Hardy DE/LB Paramus Catholic

Hardy has yet to commit to a college program and is maintaining a presence in trips to campuses.

The 2018 prospect most recently made unofficial visits to both Ohio State and Penn State last month, along with Pitt in late-March and Rutgers during October and September.

This past summer, Hardy took unofficial visits to Florida and Rutgers as well as attending Penn State’s Junior Day.

Heading into the 2017 season, he currently holds offers from Alabama, Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, LSU, Miami (FL), Michigan, Michigan State, NC State, Nebraska, UNC, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.

Jesse Luketa

Jesse Luketa LB Mercyhurst Prep (PA)

We may have the most underrated linebacker and possibly overall player in the 2018 recruiting class right here.

The Penn State commit reminds us of an interior linebacker with the versatility to run both 3-4 and 4-3 base defenses.

An every down prospect with the skill set to cover, support the run and apply a pass rush.

Luketa made an unofficial visit to Happy Valley in late April, following offers from Michigan State, Maryland, Auburn, Florida, Baylor, Oklahoma, Louisville, Georgia and Ohio State over the past three months.

Iverson Clement

Iverson Clement RB Rancocas Valley Regional (NJ)

Clement committed to Florida during April following an unofficial visit to Gainesville the previous month.

Like former New Jersey recruit and current Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick, the 2018 prospect presents versatility at the position with the ability to carry the football, as well as compliment the offense out on the perimeter as a wide receiver.

During February, he landed offers from Nebraska, Pitt, Purdue, Michigan State, Baylor and Minnesota, and made unofficial visits to Purdue, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Michigan and Michigan State.

Devin Leary

Devin Leary QB Timber Creek (NJ)

The New Jersey Gatorade Player of the Year committed to NC State last month following a junior season which included 3,688 yards passing with 48 touchdowns to just four interceptions.

Strong armed and accurate, Leary has most recently received scholarship offers from Pitt, Rutgers and Minnesota this past February, along with Junior Day trips to in-state Rutgers and West Virginia during that same month.

This past Fall, the 2018 prospect landed offers from Syracuse, Iowa and West Virginia and also made unofficial visits to see Rutgers, Maryland and West Virginia.
