JP Stevens (Edison, NJ) offensive guard Jeremy Zuttah is proving on the field why he is one of the top offensive line prospects in the East. Through four games (3-1), he has accumulated around 35 pancake blocks.
“I feel much stronger than I did last year,” said Zuttah. “I feel like I’m playing really well this year.”
Schools are recruiting Zuttah primarily as an offensive guard, though with his athleticism he could easily move around to any of the line positions. He possesses very quick feet to go along with his 6-4, 285 pound size and strength.
“Schools want the strong kids and the bigger kids to play offensive guard, because they are the ones that have to block the big defensive tackles,” said Zuttah. “A lot of places say I have the athleticism to play tackle as well though.”
Thirteen schools have extended official scholarship offers thus far. He has not set any official visits, but he did mention some schools he is thinking about right now.
In terms of the two Division I-A Virginia programs, one is still in contention while one has been eliminated.
“Virginia Tech is still in there and Virginia is not,” said Zuttah. “I talk to Coach [Kevin] Rogers a lot and I like their program. They also have a good business program. Some of the other schools I’m considering include Ohio State, Rutgers, Michigan State, Iowa, and NC State.
“I’m still open right now, with no favorites. I’m not thinking about it too much because I’m focusing on my senior season. It should be sometime within the next month or so when I’ll narrow my list.”
