The info seems hard to come by but is there a listing of the USPHL Elite College Commits??? I've seen a few D-3 commits to academically and hockey weak schools but is anyone landing college deals from this league?
Or is the idea / excuse that if the kid is any good they would move him up to Premier? Then what about the teams that have Elite but no Premier?
True, true, true, but remember there are some pretty marginal schools trying to field D-3 hockey teams.
Not 100% as there are kids who make D3 from USPHL Elite and EHL Elite but for the most part its the Premier players who make it. The other levels are more or less a fundraiser if your 21 on your last year of juniors. Thats the reality of junior hockey as many programs do very little promoting from in house and get better players outside the organization. Remember it is a business and a very lucrative one at that.
Is there a list somewhere? I think I've seen a list from the NCAA somewhere....or maybe it was a Jr. Hockey website.
