BC High's Melley commits to UConn

BC High rising senior Bobby Melley has verbally committed to the University of Connecticut, his father told ESPN Boston via email Friday.

The Eagles' catcher and captain is a two-time Catholic Conference All-Star and was the Catholic Conference's batting champion in 2011. Melley, who was a "Utility" Honorable Mention selection on ESPN Boston's inaugural MIAA All-State team, will join coach Jim Penders and the 2011 Big East Champions in the fall of 2012.
