St. John's Prep's McCarthy commits to Brown

St. John's Prep hockey junior forward Jack McCarthy announced his verbal commitment to Brown University Thursday afternoon via his Twitter account.

McCarthy, who posted 10 goals (tied for second) for 16 points in 24 games for the Catholic Conference champion Eagles, becomes the second Prep skater this academic year to give a commitment to Bears, joining fellow junior forward Tyler Bird.

"Committed to Brown University. Thanks to everyone who helped me over the years!" McCarthy wrote in his Tweet, announcing his decision.

It is unknown which year McCarthy, a Wakefield resident, will join the Bears.
