Shea Commits To BC

So BC received a commitment last week from Brandon Shea, one of the top 14 year olds in the country.  Shea visited UMass in February as well as BU, Harvard, and Northeastern.  I think it’s great that UMass drew the interest of this kid enough for a visit, especially given the competition for him, but even years ago when he first got recognized on the amateur scene I was told he was more than likely BC bound.  Why?  Well his father, Colorado Avalanche scout Neil Shea, is a loyal BC alum and has had the heights as a target for Shea from the beginning.  Still, his visit combined with some of the recent commitments shows that the recruiting is still going well for Toot as of late.

As far as I know Brandon is not related to defenseman Colin Shea who will be entering UMass this fall.


Martin Nolet continues to pile up the academic awards, most recently being named an Academic All-American.

That’s all there is for now.  Hopefully I’ll have some news following tomorrow’s Pond Club Golf Tournament.
