     Title: 2010 Summer Clam Commitment
Summer 2010 Summer Tour verbal commitments kick into gear

On the first night of the Rutgers tournament, one of our Clam coaches was talking to his friend and University of Hartford head coach Pete Lawrence when Coach Lawrence informed him that Clam attackman Jimmy Murphy (Brewster Academy) had verbally committed to Hartford only a few days earlier.

And so begins the 2010 Summer Tour season of commitments.

Jimmy, who is entering his second summer with the Clams, impressed former Denver University Head Coach Jamie Munro early on in the spring while down in Florida with Brewster (read article), and Coach Lawrence also saw in Jimmy what he was looking for.

Jimmy will be following Clam Alumni & 2010 Honorable Mention All-American Tim Fallon (M/FOGO, Lawrence Academy, Clam '05-'06), Justin Bearse (A, Barnstable HS, Clam '06), and Will Ricciurdi (D/LSM, Duxbury HS, Clam '06-'07) down to the land of the Hawks.

Below are the 2010 Summer Clams that have verbally committed to D1 programs thus far:

Tanner Powers, defense, The Rivers School - UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT
