Napoleon getting looks as a QB

Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep athlete Brandon Napoleon drew some praise recently for his play as a quarterback at the Rutgers Nike Camp.

Napoleon told Rivals.com on Monday that a few schools are open to the idea of allowing him to play quarterback in college.

UConn and West Virginia are recruiting Napoleon as a quarterback. Miami came to St. Peter's Prep to evaluate Napoleon as a quarterback just today, and North Carolina has offered him as an athlete but has told him they'll look at him as a quarterback at one of their camps over the summer.

Two weeks ago Napoleon visited Virginia Tech and that trip went very well for him. The same schools are involved with him, but he has shaken up his list a little bit.

"My favorites are UNC, Rutgers, Indiana, Virginia Tech and Michigan in that order," he said, noting that the first three schools he listed have offered while the Hokies and Wolverines have not.

Napoleon enjoyed his time at Rutgers on Saturday.

"It was fun," he recalled. "Since I'm a Jersey cat I got to see friends and recruits. I got to hang out with Miles Shuler, Savon (Huggins) and some other guys.

"The game was really cool. It was nice. The alumni played before the spring game and that was nice. Coach (Greg) Schiano called me into his office and told me how much they want me as a corner. I talked to all the coaches, basically."

Indiana has moved up Napoleon's list recently. In two weeks Napoleon will visit the Hoosiers and the week after that he will be at Michigan.
