Isaacs ready to visit BC

11/1/2011

Despite the program's 2-6 record this season, Boston College is still a school on Andrew Isaacs' radar.

Isaacs, a 6-foot-4, 240-pound junior tight end from Manchester (Conn.) High School, has scholarship offers from BC and Connecticut. He received both offers when he was a sophomore.

Isaacs is scheduled to attend Thursday night's BC-Florida State game with Manchester coach Marco Pizzoferrato. He also attended the BC-Northwestern game earlier this season.

“The one good thing is he has time for all the Big East stuff to get settled with Connecticut,” Pizzoferrato said. “I'm not sure what's going to happen with the coaching situation at BC. We'll be up there Thursday, so I'm gonna feel the water.”

Connecticut offensive coordinator George DeLeone attended Manchester's game last Friday. Pizzoferrato said Arkansas, Maryland, Miami and Penn State are also showing strong interest.

“I've gotten film requests from everywhere, but those are the ones that are sending the hand-written letters and stuff,” Pizzoferatto said. “Miami, by far, does the most checking in of all the schools, but we'll have to see what the penalties are gonna be down there.

“I've been told he'll have double-digit offers this summer. I've told everyone that he's not making a decision until after next football season. That's one thing he's sure about.”

DiBiaso sets TD record

Quarterback Jonathan DiBiaso (Everett, Mass./Everett) set the Massachusetts state record for career touchdown passes when he threw for six TDs during Friday night's 41-14 victory over Medford.

DiBiaso has 88 career TD passes. The previous record of 85 TD passes was held by former Brockton quarterback Tom Columbo.

“Harvard offered me last Sunday and Dartmouth, Penn, Princeton, Holy Cross and Lehigh are also recruiting me still,” DiBiaso said. “I'm still wide open. I want to wait and make sure I make the right decision. I'm still really excited about the Harvard offer though.”

Fuller appears pain-free

Athlete Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, N.J./Old Tappan) struggled with injuries during the early part of the season, but seems to be getting better by the week.

He completed 13 of 14 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 201 yards and two TDs on nine carries in a 34-0 victory over Passaic Valley last weekend.

Fuller has scored 11 touchdowns in his last two games. He took an official visit to Nebraska earlier this month, and is also considering Alabama, Boston College, Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Miami, Penn State, Rutgers, TCU and UCLA.
