Senior two-way lineman Dan Connaughton of Buckingham, Browne & Nichols School committed to University of Pennsylvania on Friday. The 6-foot-3, 272-pound All-ISL and All-New England player from Lincoln had eight scholarship offers, including from Temple University and the University of Massachusetts.

“Dan had 11 schools heavily recruiting him,” BB&N coach John Papas said in an email. “In the end though, Dan and his family thought Penn was the right fit. He will have a great career in Philly and also get a world class education.”

Connaughton is the latest of a strong class of BB&N linemen to declare. Offensive tackles Eric Olson (Northwestern) of Sudbury and Chris Mackey (Amherst) of Newton made their commitments last year.

BB&N just keeps cranking them out. How many baseball commits will they have this year?
