Erial (N.J.) Timber Creek has been a fertile program for college football recruits in recent years, producing wide receiver Damiere Byrd (South Carolina) and linebacker Quinton Alston (Iowa) last year. Senior Quanzell Lambert, a four-star linebacker, and juniors Dajuan Drennon and Greg Webb are among the players on this year's team who have drawn heavy Division I interest.
Now recruiters seem to be turning their attention to Timber Creek quarterback/outside linebacker Myles Nash as well. Nash, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound junior, has no offers, but said there's interest from Rutgers, South Carolina, Connecticut, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt.
“Rutgers and a lot of other schools like me as an outside linebacker or a standup defensive end rushing off the edge,” Nash said. “A lot of schools have told me to bulk up, because at 6-5 things get stretched out.
“My QB film just went out. Once it gets evaluated I think a lot of schools will want me as a quarterback. I'd like to play quarterback in college.”
Nash, who has also played some tight end, said Georgia Tech likes him as a receiver. He attended camps at Florida, Syracuse, Rutgers, Connecticut and Penn State last summer, and has been invited to the U.S. Army Combine in January.
“I think once the season ends the offers will start to come in,” Nash said.
Lambert nearing final visit
Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson said Lambert will take his final official visit to Alabama on Dec. 9. He has also taken official visits to Iowa, Nebraska, Northwestern and Oklahoma.
“He's still not close to a decision,” Hinson said.
Brodie headed to Connecticut
Three-star offensive lineman Ryan Brodie (Long Branch, N.J./Long Branch) said he will take an official visit to Connecticut this weekend for Saturday's game against Louisville.
Brodie said he will also visit Illinois in December.
