Hey everyone, I got these reports from MJF College Football Recruiting.com, and they came from a combine last month run by former Notre Dame star and NFL quarterback Terry Hanratty in which several Shore players participated. They give some opinions and stats on some players you know and others you don’t, so I feel like it’s a little appetizer as we get ready for the preseason to get rolling this coming week.
George Stephens – Asbury Park HS, NJ – 5’10”, 185 lbs., 4.53 forty – 2010
Good speed/quickness, excellent hands, will make a very good all-purpose back. Tough player with very strong work ethic. D-1 prospect.
Andrew Suarez – Middletown South HS, NJ – 5’10”, 175 lbs. – 2011
Good speed, excellent hands and ran good routes. Goes all out every play; tremendous work ethic. Again, another all-purpose back. 1AA/D-1 prospect.
Matt Paolillo – Red Bank Catholic HS, NJ – 6’1 1/2″, 215 lbs., 4.7 forty – 2011
Very strong, aggressive, solid in pass coverage, good footwork, can easily add 20 lbs. with build. D-1/1AA prospect.
Andre Hodge – Matawan, NJ – 6’0″, 225 lbs.
Very good prospect. Very physical and tough with a mean streak; always a plus for LBs. Good quickness and speed and did well in pass coverage. Played as a down lineman last year; looks like he should make the adjustment to LB and be an outstanding D-1 prospect.
Stephen Coluccio (OT/DE) – Middletown South, NJ – 6’4″, 240 lbs., 4.75 forty – 2010
Tough, quick and smart; Ivy League grades. Tremendous work ethic, excellent technique. Has room to add a lot of weight and still maintain speed and quickness. D1/1AA prospect on offense or defense.

TE – Christian Spaulding – Midd South, NJ – 6’3″, 200 lbs. – 2011
