I know several of the kids that decommitted. One was drafted in the third round (projected first round, but dropped) and his NHL club encouraged him to play OHL.
One kid was drafted late by the Bruins. He moved to BU.
One kid's stock fell - was very well though of at 16 but didn't grow and started to struggle.
With rare exceptions, the super early (i.e., age 15 and 16) commitments are illusory.
