Everett's Parvelus commits to Sacred Heart

Everett High linebacker C.J. Parvelus announced this afternoon on his Twitter account that he has verbally committed to Sacred Heart University.

The 6-foot, 220-pound Parvelus recorded 52 tackles, one interception and two forced fumbles at linebacker, part of a rugged corps of backers that helped lead the Crimson Tide to the MIAA Division 1 North Final. SHU was the only school to offer Parvelus, during his visit to its campus over the weekend, but he also received varying degrees of interest from Villanova on down to Merrimack at the Division 2 level.

"I spent a lot of time around the coaches on my visit [last weekend]," Parvelus told ESPNBoston.com before tonight's basketball contest with Cambridge. "Also, the players, I met half the team, I was around them a lot. I just felt like I was at home. There's a lot of kids there from Mass., so they understood [where he came from]. It was like one big happy family over there."
