Matawan's Jared Allison Chooses UNH Wildcats

Jared Allison of the Matawan Huskies football team has been picked up by the New Hampshire Wildcats and is expected to play slot receiver, according to The Concord Monitor. APP says Allison made a non-binding commitment to UNH late on Wed 26 January. "'When I went up there, I felt like I was home,' said Allison, who said he chose the Wildcats over Eastern Illinois. He'll join a program that had 16 players from New Jersey on its roster last season, including former Toms River East star Nico Steriti."

According to WMUR 9 New Hampshire, "Jared Allison is a standout athlete from Cliffwood, N.J., where he was a four-year starter. As a junior quarterback, he led his team to a state championship, capturing the MVP award in the title game. During that junior season, Allison was named All-Shore First Team, All-New Jersey Group 2 First Team, All-State Second Team, Old Spice Red Zone Player of the Year and selected to the New Jersey Super 100 Team. Allison, as a senior captain, guided Matawan to a second straight state championship and was once again voted to the N.J. Super 100 Team, All-Shore First Team, All-N.J. Group 2 First Team and All-State Third Team. 'Jared is a dynamic athlete who will give us great depth at the slot receiver and kick return positions,' McDonnell said."

UNH is in Durham, New Hampshire, a small town near the seacoast but not too far from Boston. US News and World Report ranks this school 104th.
