Audibles: "I think that I move down the line very well and come off the ball very fast. I think they like my quickness." -Red Bank defensive tackle Kade Weston

"I'm able to move well. I have quick feet and have pretty good speed. I pursue really good and am very aggressive. I want to get faster. I need to improve my strength, power and agility. I'd also like to get better at reading the plays."
BPs 285/SQs 400

JR Stats: 114 tackles/20 TFL/14 sacks/5 FC

2.6/May SAT

He has offers by Virginia, Rutgers, Boston College, Penn State, Syracuse, Maryland, North Carolina, Michigan State, Ohio State, Louisville, Nebraska, and Florida.

FSU and OU are also looking to offer

His top four are Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, and Oklahoma
You don't see many big men run as well as Weston does. When I saw 6'6" and 312 I wasn't expecting him to be as active as he was on film. He's not a sloppy 312 by any means. Looks like Coach Hazell has his work cut out for him in New Jersey. We're in on some nice looking prospects over there.

Nice find, 86.


Rahmir Cottman has an updated top 6, per Rivals, and Ohio State is not listed.

Interesting article in RutgersFan.com (Rivals network) on Kade Weston. Here's a funny quote:

John: Based on what you have heard from coaches, or what you have seen in mailings, what school sounds like the most fun place to go to school?

Kade: Miami because I heard that it nice down there, good looking girls, and the coach told me if I have to talk to a Spanish girl tell him and he will give me a few lines. USC because it is nice out there. The Staple Center is like 5 minutes away from the school. Hollywood is half hour away. You see a lot of famous people.
Kids these days! :ohwell:

free insiders article on Kade Weston

Red Bank (N.J.) Catholic defensive tackle Kade Weston is quick on the field, but just the opposite in recruiting. He wants to be sure of everything before he cuts any team, which has not happened just yet.

“It’s good. I don’t know any teams that I am favoring; I’m wide open,” says the 6-foot-5, 300 pounder. “Maryland, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and USC are just some of the schools I am looking at.

Teams will have to rely on film as Weston wants to stay at home and work on the grueling tests he is certain to come open in a tough senior season.

“I am not going to camps this summer. I am running and lifting and I will be getting in shape, because I’ll be playing both sides of the ball. I’m excited about playing both sides, but I don’t want to play offense in college. I want to stay on defense.”

It is rather obvious as to Weston’s talent, and he says the important part to his game is in his lower body.

“I’m aggressive and I have quick feet. I am pretty fast for my size, and I will be doing the same thing I did last year like move from sideline to sideline and making tackles.”

That aggression and speed shows up in Weston’s weight-room numbers with a 325 bench press, 20 bench reps at 185 pounds, and a squat of 490 pounds. He also runs a 5.0 40-yard dash.

Weston is taking baby steps in his decision-making process, and the first will come soon.

“The first thing I am going to do is narrow it down to 10 schools sometime this summer.”

Amazing tackle stats

I hope Coach Hazell can pull Kade in. His stats are incredible -- 114 tackles, 20 for loss.

I know that some feel a DT should plug up the line so the LBs can make the tackles, but I disagree. The D-line is the first line of defense and, if you can stop people there, you have severely crippled your opponent's running game.

As a guy who is new to football, Kade has demonstrated a real instinct for the game. He sheds blocks, penetrates and makes tackles. His size, speed, strength and great instincts -- coupled with the outstanding coaching he would get at tOSU -- could make Kade Weston one of the truly great D-linemen ever to play the game.

Coach Hazell: Please bring this New Jersey wonderkind to tOSU!
