News and Notes: Robber

Today it was announced that BU has picked up a commitment from Maine decommit Nick Roberto. Roberto was one in many who avoided their commitment to Orono after the program's head coach, Tim Whitehead was fired two weeks ago.

Roberto is a 5-9, 170 pound forward, who previously called Kimball Union Academy home. Before that, he played at Malden Catholic. Last year with KUA, he put up 14 goals, 15 assists for 31 assists in 29 games. Roberto was named USHR's "Prep Forward of  the Year."

Roberto now joins former teammate at MC Brandon Collier, Robbie Baillargeon, Jarrid Privitera, Tommy Kelley, and Kevin Duane as the forwards in BU 2013 recruit class.
