Based on the odds, Alex Kapp seemed to be leaning toward the Big East when we spoke with him about his college options last month.
But an unofficial visit to Boston College was enough to upstage the competition for his goalkeeping services. Kapp, the No. 66 player in our 2012 Top 100 and the starting netminder for Westchester Academy, recently made his verbal commitment with the Golden Eagles.
“After meeting with coach (Ed Kelly) and spending time with the team, I knew it would be a good fit,” Kapp said. “Being able to have my family and friends from New York see me play was a reason to choose BC. It’s a soccer program that can help me get to the next level.”
