Former Greely standout will skate for Providence

Ted Hart, a former Greely High star, verbally committed to attend Providence College.

Hart transferred to Phillips Exeter Academy for the current school year after helping Greely win back-to-back Class B state championships. He still has one more year of eligibility remaining at Phillips Exeter.

Hart, a forward, will follow in the footsteps of older brother Kevin, a senior defenseman at Providence. Another brother, Brian, is a sophomore forward at Harvard.
