Matt Farrell to Boston College

Matt Farrell, a 6-foot-2 point guard from Point Pleasant Beach (N.J.), verbally pledged to Boston College over Monmouth and Dartmouth on Tuesday.

“I wanna be challenged and I wanna see if I can play at the highest level,” Farrell said, according to Josh Newman of the Asbury Park Press.

Farrell is the second Point Pleasant player to pledge to a Division 1 school in recent weeks, following 6-8 forward Dom Uhl, who committed to Iowa on SNY,tv. He is BC’s first pledge in 2014.

“Matt is a highly skilled point guard who can shoot it and has a great feel for the game,” Point Pleasant Beach coach Nick Catania told “He is super quick with the ball and makes his teammates around him better.

“However, the reason he will succeed at Boston College is because of his competitive spirit. He hates to lose.”
