Londonderry High School quarterback Eric Fairweather committed to St. Anselm College on Saturday night.
Fairweather, New Hampshire's Gatorade Player of the Year for the 2014 season, said he was also considering Assumption, Stonehill and Bryant. Stonehill and Bryant recruited him to play defensive back, but St. Anselm is bringing him in to play quarterback.
"That's one of the reasons I'm going there," Fairweather said. "I really want to give quarterback a try in college. I really enjoyed it there when I went for my overnight visit (earlier this month). I think it's the best fit for me financially and academically. Plus I really like their offense."
"I think the opportunity to play quarterback was a big selling point," Londonderry coach Jimmy Lauzon said. "He wanted to stick with quarterback. I think he could surprise some people at quarterback. We didn't really have to throw much, but he can sling it with the best of them."
"It's close to home and that was more of a positive than a negative," Fairweather said. "When I'm on campus I don't think I'll feel like I'm just down the road."

Day, 35, joins the Eagles after a two-year stint as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Boston College. That school posted consecutive seven-win seasons from 2013-2014. Day also held stints at Boston College from 2007-11 as wide receivers coach and from 2003-04 as a graduate assistant on offense.
In 2012, Day was the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Temple University. He also served as the Owls wide receivers coach in 2006.
Day was a three-year starter in college, playing under former UNH offensive coordinator and current Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly. He finished his collegiate career with four UNH passing records, including best passing percentage and touchdown passes in a career.
Day began his coaching career as the tight ends coach at his alma mater in 2002. He also worked at the University of Florida in 2005 as a graduate assistant for offense.
He earned his bachelor's degree in business administration from New Hampshire in 2002 and a master's degree in administrative studies from Boston College in 2004.
