The 6-foot, 220-pound Canevari returned from his official visit from Rutgers, which offered him a greyshirt scholarship last week, and talked about his situation.
"Rutgers is the leader," he said. "On signing day I'm going to make my announcement." And does he expect to choose Rutgers?
"I do," he said.
Canevari added he had to speak with Rutgers commit and Don Bosco Prep teammate Gary Nova about the timing of Wednesday's announcement.
During his visit to Rutgers, Canevari was hosted by walk-on fullback Michael Burton.
"It went real well," Canevari said. "I'm just leaving now. It was nice. I didn't commit. Signing day is this Wednesday, so I thought I would wait until then."
Although Canevari was offered as a greyshirt, which means he would enter Rutgers in January 2012, he spoke to Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and was told there is a chance he could enroll in the summer in and take part in training camp.
"They said if anything opens up, I could come in during the summer," Canevari said. "They said they might have a scholarship (for the fall)."
As is the case with most of the recruits, Canevari said a highlight was the trip to Times Square.
"We hung out with the coaches, we went bowling and hung out," Canevari said. "I have about five pounds. They stuff you."
