Last week, we reported that highly-regard Kimball Union Academy forward Nick Roberto was being recruited by BU after decommitting from Maine. The 5-9, 170 lb., right-shot forward, who earned 2012-13 USHR Prep Forward of the Year honors, visited BU on Thursday and now has committed to BU for the 2013 season.
The Wakefield, Mass., native joins two close friends in BU’s 2013 recruit class. Prior to KUA, Roberto spent two seasons at Malden Catholic as a teammate of Brendan Collier as the Lancers won their first of three consecutive Super 8 titles in 2010-11. The other is KUA’s captain, 6-5 defenseman Doyle Somerby, of whom Roberto told the Maine Hockey Journal, ““We have been good friends since [we were] nine years old playing together.”
