Parker Inks A Couple For The Class of 2014

I find it so interesting that college hockey teams can recieve verbal commitments from players as young as 15 while NCAA basketball is considering not letting players sign (or be offered scholarships) until the July before their senior year of HS. In this case, it seems to have worked in the Terriers' favor as they recently recieved verbals from two players who reportedly have long wanted to play at HAA.

Firstly, according to the ever-excellent Terrier Hockey Fan Blog, BU reportedly struck gold by recieveing a commitment from its first Class of '14er, the highly touted Anthony DeAngelo, a 15-year old right defenseman from New Jersey who currently plays with the Westchester Express. According to US Hockey Report, he is not shy to drop the gloves, and is a fantastic skater with great ice awareness and the potential to be a star powerplay QB. Next year he will team up with another future Terrier, Cason Hohmann on the roster of the USHL's Cerdar Rapids RoughRiders. He will be the youngest player in the league's history.

Several days later, another excellent pickup surfaced in the personage of our second class of '13 member, Adam Erne, according to The Boston Hockey Blog. USHR describes the rising HS sophomore left winger as a power forward type with passing and scoring ability. He also has size and what have been described as "scary" stickhandling skills. I'm looking forward to seeing both on the ice in a couple years.

Speaking of in a couple years....

Oh yes you know you like that.

And one more thing, I don't care what Corey Trivino says from Islanders camp to WTBU about Vinny Saponari mulling the USHL and the QMJHL, I saw #27 and #10 in BU Facilities shirts presumably serving some sort of debt to society on campus over a month after the hammer fell, so I'm like 99% sure at least the younger of the Georgia boys is coming back this fall. I'm just writing it down now so I have a record of saying it first that I can point to when he is welcomed back into the fold with open arms a few months down the road.
