Cushing Academy's Askew commits to BU

Cushing Academy freshman forward Cam Askew has committed to Boston University, he told ESPN Boston this afternoon.

After giving a verbal commitment to Northeastern last season, Askew pulled his commitment to the Huskies and reopened his recruitment in November.

Considered by many to be the top-rated 1997 birth year player in the country, Askew totaled 25 points (12 G, 13 A) for St. Sebastian's last season as an eighth-grader. Askew, a South Boston native, was also selected by the Indiana Ice in the sixth round of the 2012 USHL Entry Draft.
