N.E. represented in 2012 watch list

ESPNU has released its Top 150 Watch List for the Class of 2012, and five New Englanders are in the mix.

Billerica's Nick LaSpada, Masuk's Casey Cochran, Worcester Academy's Canaan Severin, and Catholic Memorial stalwarts Armani Reeves and Camren Williams were all named to the list of the top 300 juniors nationally. The list will eventually be whittled down to 150, but it's a good starting point.

On another note, LaSpada told correspondent Roger Brown this week that Alabama and Illinois were amongst the schools that called him on Wednesday. Read more on his recruiting blog here.
