Recruiting -- 2018 and beyond

Post by 78 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:06 pm

Here's a new one. My guess is we will see him in 2 years at the earliest.

John Lundy (North Jersey Avs 16U) is very good commit for UMass. '01 F is good finisher, constantly improving. Played NY Aviators last year.

I'm guessing this kid will be here for the 2020-21 season. Ethan Wolthers from California. Interesting note, 3-time world BMX champion!

3.5⭐️ Ethan Wolthers to UMass. He is a quick strike playmaker. Uses his excellent speed to his advantage and has quick hands to match his feet. Fearless player who is versatile and energetic. Nice upside. B+ at Select 17s

You don't find much hesitation in BMX riders. Those kids are almost always balls to the wall with everything they do.

And we have another commit who will be heading here in either '19 or '20.

Joshua Lopina
I am honored and excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at UMass Amherst. I would like to thank God, my family, friends and coaches, can’t wait to be a part of such a great organization #GoMinutemen

He's a 6'1" forward from Minooka, Illinois. Was invited last month to USA Hockey Select 17 Camp and will be playing for the Springfield Jr. Blues this coming season in the NAHL.

Another new one, Spencer Smith. He’s only 16 so we won’t be seeing him for a few years.

4.25⭐️ Spencer Smith to UMass. 2002 is fast, highly skilled and creative. Elite speed and mobility makes him tough to defend in space. Uses body well to protect along the wall and fights to get to the net. Our 19th ranked OHL Prospect.
