Sean Ronan (6-3, 265, No. 65 on the Big Board) has verbally committed to play at Dartmouth in the fall. The senior offensive and defensive lineman chose the Big Green over Brown and Penn. His teammate David Bicknell, who was the kicker at Boca, committed to Harvard on Monday.

He was a Palm Beach Post All-Area Second Team selection in the fall.

Ronan will join St. Andrew’s quarterback and good friend Cameron Crage at Dartmouth. Ronan, who also plays baseball, was a captain for Boca football. He was class president his freshman and sophomore years and an honor-roll student in the STEM program. His great-grandfather was a member of the first-ever Miami football team in 1926.

Dartmouth currently has 10 Floridians on its roster, including Benjamin alum Connor Kempe.

Verbal commitments are nonbinding. Players can sign letters of intent on National Signing Day, Feb. 2.
