Boston College and Providence received verbal commitments this week from two of the top uncommitted '03 hockey players in the region.
On Thursday, Boston College received a commitment from Cushing junior center Billy Norcross, who represented the United States at the Five Nations Tournament that was held earlier this month.
Norcross, who hails from Lynn, Mass., had two goals and three assists over five games at July's USA Hockey Select 16 Player Development Camp. New England Hockey Journal ranked him as the 14th best forward at the camp.
Norcross is a solid 200-foot player who is heavy on pucks, plays well along the wall and below the dots, and can be counted on in all situations. He has good size and will likely be a versatile piece throughout the lineup for BC.
