It’s a change of direction for Matt Lazzaro.
The standout Franklin (Mass.) High School senior, coming off a summer and fall showcase season that saw him collect more accolades, announced this week that he had decommitted from Boston University and will instead join the program at Penn State in the fall of 2022.
The decision, made in conjunction with his family, included him reclassifying to the Class of 2022. With uncertainty about spring college seasons due to COVID-19 (the Ivy League on Thursday announced that it was postponing the start of spring sports until at least the end of February), he will do a postgraduate year next year at an as-yet undetermined prep school.
