Exeter High School sophomore Cody Morissette, a four-year member of the New Hampshire Bobcats, made a verbal commitment to accept a baseball scholarship to Boston College this week. Morissette, 16, had made unofficial visits to UNC-Ashville, Virginia Tech and St. John's before committing to the Eagles of the ACC Conference. Since earning a save in his first-ever Bobcats game in 2012, he has led teams to multiple league and tournament championships. The recruiting process began in earnest last summer after playing in summer tournaments and participating in the Area Code showcase at Bentley College.
"Proud to say I have verbally committed to Boston College. Thanks to my family, friends and coaches who have helped me along the way. #birdball," Morissette tweeted.
In 2013, the lefty hitter fashioned a program-record 34-game hitting streak in games with the 13u and 14u Bobcats. He has thrown no-hitters and also been a mainstay on defense the past four seasons.
"Cody has set the standard for being a leader and demanding excellence from himself. He is passionate about the game and his teammates. Boston College is getting a great player and great person," said Bobcats director Kevin Gray. "Congratulations to Cody and his family for reaching this goal."
