Three-star wide receiver Charlie Callinan out of St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City, New Jersey is still committed to Boston College but is keeping his options open.
"I'm still a solid commit to Boston College, but I'm keeping all my options open," said Callinan.
The 6-foot-4, 210 pound receiver is receiving heavy interest from the Scarlet Knights. In addition to BC, Callinan claims offers from in-state Rutgers and Connecticut, though only Rutgers is still pursuing the WR.
"Rutgers is recruiting me a little bit. I'd say I hear from Rutgers every other week just to talk and see how everything is going."
"I've always thought very highly of Rutgers and it's a great school with a great program," said Callinan. "And their coaches are great. Coach Brock is a great coach."
Dave Brock vs. Steve Addazio. Let's see where this one goes.
Callinan claimed he'll remain committed to the Eagles until he's done his homework on Addazio, Day and the yet-to-be-named incoming coaching staff. The St. Peter's wide out attended the Rutgers-Louisville game on November 29. ACC bound Louisville won 20-17 to earn the conference's BCS bowl berth.
If Callinan signs with the Eagles, he would become the second Eagle in as many seasons to come out of St. Peter's Prep in Jersey City (joining good friend Mike Giacone). Callinan also has a lot of connections with the players within the Rutgers program.
With any coaching change, some attrition from the incoming recruiting class is expected. And if there was any position where the attrition rate would be high, it's in the receiving corps as the program moves away from Doug Martin's pass-to-set-up-the-pass offense to more of a run-heavy attack under Addazio. In addition to Callinan, the Eagles have verbal commitments from Ohio's Dan Monteroso and Drew Barksdale.
