Catholic Memorial football coach Alex Campea knows his school will be hosting a signing event Feb. 1. Donovan Henry will sign to attend and play football at Boston College. AJ Doyle is headed to UMass-Amherst. And Armani Reeves and Camren Williams? Stayed tuned for that decision.

With the news that Bill O’Brien has been named head football coach at Penn State, Catholic Memorial seniors Armani Reeves and Camren Williams now have a decision to make. Do they honor their verbal commitments to play for Penn State or do they look elsewhere? That decision must come before the Feb. 1 NCAA signing date.

Campea stressed Friday the two remain committed to the Nittany Lions, and not just for football reasons. Both selected Penn State for its academic programs and majors, not just what happened on a football field, said Campea, also the West Roxbury school’s athletic director.

O’Brien takes over from legendary coach Joe Paterno, who was forced to resign in the wake of child molestation charges and allegations against his former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky. O’Brien will stay on with the Patriots until the season ends.

Whatever school(s) gets Reeves and Williams will get two talented players.

Reeves stared on both sides of the ball for CM. He ran for 1,103 yards on 52 carries with 16 touchdowns. He also caught 21 passes for 328 yards. On defense he had 51 tackles and an interception. Williams played linebacker and tight end. He finished with 119 tackles this fall as CM went 7-2. Williams was a member of the National Honor Society.
