, one of the country's top tight ends, has switched his verbal commitment from Rutgers to Boston College, St. Peter's Prep assistant coach Rich Hansen Jr. told MaxPreps.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Giacone is the nation's No. 21 tight end.

run-heavy offense, Giacone was responsible for 13 catches for 191 yards and a touchdown.
He becomes the first player to switch his commitment from Rutgers since the Schiano news broke last week
