Denver keeps local finisher close to home

Alex Toderica, who is among the top 20 under-15/16 leading scorers this season in the Development Academy, confirmed to ESPNHS that he has committed to Denver.

The Class of 2013 forward has a team-best 13 goals for the Colorado Rapids. His 13 goals have come in 17 appearances this season.

Toderica helped his high school team, Holy Family (Broomfield, Colo.), to a state semifinal appearance last fall. He had 37 goals and 19 assists. His goal total qualified for the national leaders list.

He is the second confirmed commitment to Denver for the Class of 2013, joining Kyle Morlack of Arizona.
