Malden's Samano commits to New Haven

Malden High senior offensive/defensive lineman Aaron Samano has accepted a scholarship offer from the University of New Haven, Golden Tornadoes head coach Joe Pappagallo told ESPNBoston.com this morning in an email.

The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Samano, who were profiled last summer as part of the high school section's launch, was a two-time Greater Boston League All-Star and captain for the Tornadoes, who went 5-5 this past season. He will be a full-time offensive lineman at New Haven, and will join former Malden teammate Herbans Antenor on the squad.
