Prep's Geaslen commits to Northeastern

St. John's Prep senior catcher Mike Geaslen has verbally committed to Northeastern University for the 2014-15 school year, he announced today on his Twitter account.

The 6-foot-3 Geaslen, an Andover resident, was an integral part of an Eagles squad that captured the Catholic Conference title outright, earned the top overall seed in Division 1 North of the MIAA Tournament, and reached the sectional finals, where they lost to underdog Billerica in a surprise upset. This summer, Geaslen has recorded a pop time as fast at 1.9 seconds.

"I got a very good opportunity and I took it," Geaslen said. "Northeastern has great athletics and academics. I loved everything about it."

Geaslen's commitment to the Huskies has some familial feel to it, too. His sister, Tameka, is currently a redshirt-sophomore goalkeeper on Northeastern's field hockey squad.
