Divitto watching stock rise

Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep linebacker Steele Divitto has had the attention of college coaches for quite some time. After an impressive performance at the U.S. Army All-American Combine in San Antonio earlier this year his stock soared to new heights.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound linebacker from the Garden State runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds and recorded 77 tackles to go along with eight sacks as a junior at Don Bosco this past fall.

He believes his performance in San Antonio will help him greatly with colleges down the road. Right now he is focused on talking to as many schools as possible.

"When I went down to Texas for the All-American event I was named to the all-combine team," Divitto recalled.

"Other than that, I went to the junior day at Boston College. I really enjoyed it a lot. I liked the atmosphere and everything about the place. I really liked the attitude of the players when it comes to how they felt about playing for Boston College.

"I talked to coach (Bill) McGovern. He's the defensive coordinator there now. He told me that I was one of his top recruits for this class."

Divitto enjoyed his trip to Chestnut Hill so much, in fact, that he plans on making another visit to BC.

"I'll definitely be driving up to Boston College again," he told EagleAction.com. "I'll probably be going to Maryland and Penn State at some point, too."

Divitto said his coach has been responsible for sending his film out to various schools.

He is still waiting for his first offer to come in but he has a pretty good idea of what schools he will be interested in.

"Well, I'd definitely have to have Boston College up there at the top," he said. "I really liked it up there. I'll look at some of the other schools that are interested in me too, though. I've heard from Rutgers but I wasn't able to make it to their junior day. They told me about it too late."
