Rivals250 tight end Rob Gronkowski just transferred schools last week. The 6-foot-6, 232-pounder formerly out of Williamsville (N.Y.) Williamsville North is headed to the Keystone State.
"He transferred to Pittsburgh's Woodland Hills High School," his father, Gordy Gronkowski said. "The official transfer occurred last Friday. I work down in that area a lot and I've got a year project down there and Rob basically told me that he wanted to come down with me and play football in Pennsylvania. He really liked what he saw there and has wanted to do this since last year and it finally worked out. From what I can tell he seems to like it already.
"I know he really wanted to go there because the football is a lot better and he wants to play with better competition. That was a major reason for him to go and then the fact I'm going to be there anyway, it worked out well."

On the recruiting front, the elder Gronkowski confirmed his son has already scheduled one official visit.
"We're definitely going out to Arizona on September 23rd for the USC game," he said. "That's the only definite right now. It's going to be a rough trip because he plays on Friday night, but he really wants to get out there for that game."
Meanwhile, the four-star prospect is still debating between the other schools for official visits. Gronkowski is favoring six schools besides the Wildcats including Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio State and Syracuse.
