Sophia Chen of Newbury Park, Calif., has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Boston College.

Chen made unofficial visits to Boston College, Georgetown, Penn, Princeton, Michigan and North Carolina, and was receiving interest from many others.

“I am so grateful to be studying at one of the top academic institutions in the country,” Chen said. “I am also excited that I will be able to compete in the ACC, one of the strongest conferences in the country. Boston College has a beautiful campus as well as a fantastic athletic training facility. The coaching staff and teammates are great.”

Chen posted a pair of top-10 finishes in AJGA events this past summer including a fifth place showing at the Coca-Cola Junior Championship at Boyne Highlands. Chen also won an FCWT event. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
