Barnstable's Hardy commits to Bentley

Barnstable High senior linebacker Bryan Hardy has verbally committed to Bentley University for the 2013 season, his father Chris told ESPNBoston.com tonight.

Hardy was one of the Red Raiders' most reliable men in the middle this season, ranking second on the team in solo tackles (60) to go along with two sacks and a fumble recovery. In the Raiders' 20-19 loss to Everett in the Division 1A Super Bowl, Hardy registered 15 total tackles. He is a two-time Old Colony League All-Star.

Hardy received a Presidential Scholarship, and was invited into Bentley's honors program.
