Schiavone Home from Visits

Tight end Anthony Schiavone and quarterback Jordan Reed make a formidable duo in the passing game for New London High School and so far Schiavone has been getting his fair share of interest from a number of FBS level programs. He recently took an unofficial visit to Florida and was also at junior day in Storrs.

Anthony Schiavone, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound tight end from New London, Conn., has been receiving interest from several schools already, but the ones that are approaching him with the most vigor have been Florida, Connecticut, Boston College, Rutgers, Maryland, Temple and Duke. He has already taken two visits and has more planned for the spring and summer.

"I went down to Florida and got to meet with Coach (Steve) Addazio for a little bit before everything started," Schiavone stated. "I toured the facilities and the campus and thought everything was really nice. After that I sat in on their special teams meeting and a tight ends meeting. Then I got to go see their stadium which was just ridiculously huge. The Swamp was my favorite part of the visit. They also have great weather obviously, especially when you're a kid from Connecticut."

"I was at junior day with a bunch of kids at Connecticut and they told me they want me to come back for camp and then review the first two games from my senior year to get a feel for me," Schiavone explained. "The facilities were very high-tech and the campus was great. I talked to the staff for a bit and am somewhat familiar with them already because I've been to a few practices now."

Schiavone will be visiting Boston College this weekend and has plans to see Temple, Rutgers and Maryland in the spring. Recommended Stories
