Dibs to visit Harvard, Northwestern emerging?

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on the East Recruiting Blog with Everett quarterback Jonathan DiBiaso, who is taking a visit to Harvard University this weekend. Until this point, most of the interest for DiBiaso had come from the Ivy and Patriot Leagues; he has visits with Dartmouth and Penn scheduled for next month, while Brown and Holy Cross have also expressed interest.

But the interest for record-setting quarterback, who on Monday was named ESPN Boston's Mr. Football for 2011, has slowly been picking. The latest school to reach out to him comes from the Big Ten.

Brown writes:

“Northwestern called over the weekend,” DiBiaso said. “I have to send them my transcript and film. We'll see what happens there. I hope that works out. I think it'll be a good fit for me.”

DiBiaso, a senior, recently received ESPN Boston's Mr. Football Award, which is presented annually to the top high school football player in Massachusetts. Last Saturday, Everett won its second consecutive Super Bowl by defeating Lincoln-Sudbury 36-13.

Harvard, Dartmouth and Pennsylvania are DiBiaso's other college options at this point. He's scheduled to visit Harvard this weekend, and both Dartmouth and Pennsylvania in January. Brown and Holy Cross have also shown interest.

“Harvard and Dartmouth have offered,” DiBiaso said. “I'm waiting on Penn. I think Penn will offer when I'm up there.

“I'm gonna see how the visits go. I really want to be on a successful team and [Harvard and Penn] are the two winningest programs in the Ivy League. I also like Dartmouth a lot. I went to the Dartmouth-Princeton game and I think they're moving in the right direction.”
