Finally Boston College football got some good recruiting news as 2016 tight end Korab Idrizi, a tight end from Bergen Catholic in New Jersey, committed to the Eagles on Saturday according to his Twitter account:

Idrizi, a 2* according to Rivals, recently had committed to Chris Ash and Rutgers, but flipped to Boston College during his visit to Chestnut Hill today. He measures in at 6'2 228lbs, and also holds offers from Temple, Buffalo, Rutgers, and a bevy of FCS schools.
This is the first recruit that clearly was affected by the new hire of DB head coach Anthony Campanile. His brother Nunzio is the head coach of Bergen Catholic, Idrizi's alma mater. He had this to say about the recruit when he committed to Rutgers on Wednesday (per NJ.com):
"Korab is a special player," he said. "He's a tremendous athlete, great route runner and has exceptional hands. More importantly, he's a ferocious competitor. He's the total package. He will be an excellent player at Rutgers."
Idrizi finished the 2015 season with thirty catches for 432 yards and two touchdowns. He clearly was needed as Scooter Harrington another tight end commit, decommitted earlier this week and pledged to Stanford.
Welcome to the Heights Korab!
