High school football lineup: Middle Township can be conference contenders with win Saturday

Middle Township’s Terrance Toney is one of three offensive threats for the Panthers, along with Zack Vogelei and Nigel Case.

One highly touted local high school football player who likely won’t sign a national letter of intent Wednesday is Middle Township’s Terrance Toney.

Toney’s father, Alfonzo, told The Press on Friday that his son has multiple offers from NAIA colleges and “strong interest” from several NCAA Division I and II schools.

Many times, D-I programs extend scholarship offers after national signing day when they end up with openings. Toney’s father said a few schools have his son “in a holding pattern” until after Wednesday.

Toney’s father declined to name any schools.

Toney, a defensive back who also played running back and receiver for Middle, is ranked by ESPN as the 47th-best player in New Jersey. For some perspective, the top-ranked local player is Absegami’s Rashad Kinlaw (No. 10), who has verbally committed to Notre Dame. Also in the top 50 are Oakcrest’s Brandon Bell (No. 25, Penn State), Cedar Creek’s Damon Mitchell (No. 26, Georgia Tech), Mainland Regional’s Jim Cooper (No. 35, Temple) and Egg Harbor Township’s Eric Wiafe (No. 46, Rutgers).
