New schools involved with Singleton

It was only a matter of time until the recruitment of D.J. Singleton really started to take off.

Singleton, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound safety from Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep, has had a few offers for a while now, but it was clear his athleticism and build made him worthy of being considered one of the top prospects in the Garden State.

Now plenty of other schools are getting involved and taking his recruitment national.

"I'm supposed to try and go see Nebraska and Wisconsin sometime," Singleton said late this week. "I'm going to try to check them out hopefully this month or maybe next month."

Both the Badgers and Cornhuskers have verbally offered Singleton, as have North Carolina, Miami, Rutgers and Buffalo.

"Last week I went to Rutgers for one of their full pad practices," Singleton recalled.

"It was their first full pad practice so things were a little shaky but it was a real good practice. The intensity was there. I liked the intensity at the practice. The coaches were really into the drills and they seemed confident. The whole team was organized. Everything they did was precise."

Tennessee has been expressing a lot of interest in Singleton lately so the Volunteers could make a move soon.

Singleton said he will also try to set up a trip to UNC sometime.
