Hervol (No. 133, 2015) commits to Connecticut

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Jimmy Hervol of Hopkinton, Mass., has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Connecticut in 2015.

Hervol, a junior at Hopkinton High School, knew that UConn was the place for him after a few unofficial visits.

"UConn is a type of school I always hoped to attend," Hervol said. "The school seemed like a perfect fit for many reasons: great academics, a strong D1 golf program, a beautiful campus, a reputable athletic program and an excellent coach. I plan to strengthen my golf game and contribute to the success of the UConn golf team."

Hervol played for New England in the 2013 Team New England vs. Team Florida match at Doral. Last summer, Hervol won the Francis Ouimet Junior Championship and qualified for the Francis Ouimet Memorial. Hervol was named MVP of the Tri-Valley League and was a member of the Metrowest Daily News Golf Super Team.
