To the unknown studs out there... Don't underestimate the power of the pen/advisor/invite list/etc..
Just had their first 03 commit to Miami of Ohio..mine was surfing
Great for the kid that signed, wish him the best. My 03 cant decide on what sneakers to wear with his outfit never mind what college he wants to go to in 4 years..am i alone on this one?
It will probably 6 years before the kid enrolls into college. He could be an 8th grader hold back and add at least a year of juniors. Could be 7 years actually..
It's the stupidest thing going right now in hockey and the NCAA should shut it down immediately. All these so called commits are promotional vehicles for kid, the program he plays in and the school. That't it. It skews the landscape and sets unrealistic expectations for 95% of the players and families out there. Idiotic. And it's not helping development.
Oh and the kid's brother is going there and an his dad is an ex-NHL'er. Shocking..
8 MA kids went to STX68 last year. 7 of them went to the National camp this year.
just enjoy the ride. its great to get recognition. if they don't get recognized, stay positive and work on the things that will get you recognized.
the 01, 02 and 03's who made national camp the year continue to work.
some who went to STX68 went to national camp...some didn't
some who didn't go to STX68 went to national camp....some didn't
but all of them are getting better. it's a long road. Enjoy it.
