Jarrid Privitera, the younger brother of incoming freshman defenseman Alexx Privitera, has committed to BU for the fall of 2012, according to Chris Heisenberg. Jarrid Privitera is a 5-foot-6 left-shot forward who played for Gunnery Prep in Connecticut this season, registering 25 goals and 18 assists in 31 games. Last year, he tallied 27 goals and 20 assists in 35 games for the North Jersey Avalanche Under-16 team in the Atlantic Youth Hockey League.
The 16-year-old Privitera, who turns 17 over the summer, becomes the fourth member of the Terriers’ 2012 freshman class, joining forward Robert Polesello, defenseman Marc Hetnik and goalie Matthew O’Connor. O’Connor could come next season, though, if Kieran Millan elects to sign with the Colorado Avalanche rather than return for his senior season.
