New Jersey prospects on display in Florida

There will be plenty of Division I recruits on the field at Hawkins Stadium in Bradenton, Fla., Friday night. There's nothing unusual about that, except for the fact that most of those recruits will be from New Jersey. Florida will face New Jersey in a doubleheader that features Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) against Manatee (Bradenton, Fla.), followed by Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.) vs. Plant (Tampa, Fla.). Don Bosco has three of the 10 four-star recruits from New Jersey: cornerback Yuri Wright (No. 3 cornerback overall), defensive end Darius Hamilton (No. 6) and safety Elijah Shumate (No. 150). All three players are uncommitted.
