La Salle High's Dominic Cuoci, a senior righthander and shortstop, has committed to play at St. Joseph's.

Last season, while helping lead the Explorers to the Catholic League title, the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder went 9-3 with a 2.23 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 66 innings. An Inquirer first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection, he allowed 45 hits and 15 walks.

In 2012, as a sophomore, Cuoci was a key contributor during the squad's run to its first PIAA Class AAAA state championship.
