Bennett High School football star Isaiah McDuffie has had a change of heart.

He decommitted from playing football for Syracuse and announced Tuesday, via Twitter, that he'll attend Boston College.

McDuffie, who will be a senior this fall, said last July he would continue his athletic career at Syracuse.  But a coaching shakeup made him have second thoughts.

McDuffie will play linebacker in college.  He had 161 tackles, 4 sacks, 3 interceptions and one interception returned for a touchdown last season.
