So Cap A's son goes from a Princeton commit to a Union commit -
Former Malden Catholic star Jack Adams commits to Union
Jim Clark Monday, July 18, 2016
The Malden Catholic-to-Union connection will continue for the foreseeable future, after former Lancers star Jack Adams announced his commitment to the Schenectady, N.Y. ECAC school Monday night on Twitter.
After being part of a pair of Super Eight championship teams in 2013 and 2014, Adams broke out during his junior season with 31 points while earning All-Scholastic honors. The younger brother of former MC star defenseman Mark Adams -- who played at Providence and was a draft pick of the Buffalo Sabres -- Adams originally committed to Princeton while at MC before changing course.
Adams spent last season with the Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League, where the 6-foot-5 right winger had 8-16-24 totals and 42 penalty minutes in 54 games.
Adams would be the second former Lancer to play for the Dutchmen. Former MC star and Herald Dream Teamer Mike Vecchione recently completed his junior season at Union and helped lead the Dutchmen to the NCAA championship in 2013-14.
I especially miss big Dave. Hey big Dave, is your kid still a king!
A commitment is defined as an agreement or promise to be loyal to someone or something now and in the future.
Why is someone's commitment to another school being celebrated after that person's commitment to a prior school has been broken without explanation?
Aaaaaah, my guess is the school pulled it after he couldn't get admitted academically. Who passes on Princeton for Union?
Yeah I'd drop a free ride at the #1 ranked national university for the 38th ranked liberal arts college... Yeah. Full ride based off of what I would expect Cap to make.
It would appear that another Tweet is in order explaining what happened with Princeton.
Union offered a full ride. Princeton offered grants and loans. End of story.
Isn't it true that if you break your college hockey commitment the college can report you to a credit agency? While you have the right to dispute the claim with the credit bureau, in all likelihood you won't be able to buy a car, rent an apartment or get a student loan to go to graduate school. It stays on your record for seven years.
Breaking your college commitment is something that doesn't look good on your permanent record.
Most guys would rather commit to an Ivy or not commit at all.
