Matawan’s Larry Alston III Taking Upcoming Visits

Matawan senior running back/wide receiver/safety Larry Alston III, an ASM first-team defensive back from the fall, will visit the University of Nevada, Temple and Old Dominion before National Signing Day on Feb. 1, according to former Matawan coach Joe Martucci, who announced his resignation this week to take an assistant coaching job at Kean University.

This was Alston’s only varsity season, as he sat out as a junior after transferring from a high school in Georgia. A 6-foot-3, 220-pounder with good speed, Alston helped the Huskies win their second Central Jersey Group II title in three seasons after having grown up in Matawan before moving to Georgia. He entered his senior season with an offer from Temple and has garnered recent interest from Nevada and Old Dominion. He is mainly being recruited as a safety, but also as an all-around athlete.

Alston also has had interest, but no offers, from Rutgers and Boston College, according to Martucci. He could snag a late offer depending on whether either of those schools get commitments from their targeted players at his position.
