A clear advantage that Boston College has is location when it comes to the top prospects in New England and Anthony Schiavone is one of those players who can easily make a trip to Chestnut Hill to get more acquainted with the surroundings. Recently he did just that, however the Eagles are not the only program showing him signs of interest right now.

Anthony Schiavone, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound tight end from New London High School in New London, Conn., made the trip to Boston College for their spring game last month and enjoyed himself, however he did not come away with an offer. He could however be on the verge of his first offer from a MAC program as he explained to on Saturday.

“I went to Boston College for their spring game and it went really well,” Schiavone explained. “I met with the coaching staff and got a tour of everything which was nice. They told me that they like what they saw from my film, but want to further evaluate me at camp this summer, so I’ll most likely go there. The campus and stadium are really nice and it’s close to home. They’ve also produced some very good tight ends.”

Penn State, Duke, Oregon and Temple were all in school this week,” Schiavone added. “Of those four Temple and Oregon are the most interested according to my coach. I’m going to call all of the coaches tomorrow. Temple actually talked about making an offer and invited me to junior day on May 17th which I’ll be going to with my mom and Oregon stood out to my coach as well.”

As a junior, Schiavone was named All-Area by both the New London Day and Norwich Bulletin, was All Eastern Connecticut Conference and was also Class S All-State.
