Recruit Replace ▲ Prime ‘00 Prospect Jeremy Davidson Commits to UMass | Concern The Triangle

Although they’ve solely been on the job for a couple of months and have but to register a win for UMass, Greg Carvel and his employees are doing a great job of convincing excessive profile recruits to decide to the Massachusetts hockey program.  This week they picked up a dedication from Jeremy Davidson, a proper shot ahead who is likely one of the high beneath 17 gamers within the nation.  In reality he’ll be representing Workforce USA within the upcoming U17 5 Nations Event subsequent week.

Davidson performed this previous season for Minnesota prep powerhouse Shattuck-St Mary’s on their Beneath 16 group.  He had 17 targets and 28 assists in 51 video games there.  Previous to Shattuck he performed within the highly-regarded Honeybaked junior program in his native Michigan.  Davidson measures 5’10”, 165lbs however at solely age 16 these numbers will seemingly improve.  He’s projected to reach at UMass in fall of 2020.  His USHL rights are held by the Bloomington Thunder who took him within the fifth spherical of final yr’s draft.

Right here’s some response to the dedication on Twitter:

Davidson is likely one of the high gamers in his age group at the moment and is a wonderful pickup for Carvel and his employees.  He was mentioned to have over a dozen faculties pursuing him, with Huge Ten faculties seemingly making up a few of them.  It most likely didn’t damage UMass’ probabilities that Davidson is from Kalamazoo, town the place assistant coach Ben Barr referred to as dwelling for the final couple years earlier than becoming a member of the UMass employees.

It’ll be some time till Davidson pulls on the maroon and white, but it surely’ll be thrilling to observe his journey whereas we’re ready.

UMass made Jack Suter’s addition to this yr’s recruiting class official.

SNB School Hockey’s Jeff Cox ranked the incoming recruiting lessons for the Hockey East applications.  Cox has UMass’ freshmen because the tenth greatest class within the league, highlighting the additions of goaltender Ryan Wischow and defenseman Shane Bear.  Contemplating the swiftness with which Carvel and the employees put the category collectively, I feel that is fairly good.  As Carvel makes an attempt to reverse the fortunes of this system it’s not a lot the rating of recruits that may matter in these preliminary years, however what he’s capable of do with them as soon as they arrive in Amherst.  UMass has had fairly a variety of excessive profile gamers be part of this system in recent times, but it surely hasn’t translated into wins as a consequence of how poorly the groups have performed on the ice.  What’s necessary is the group enjoying successfully and cohesively.  With wins and displaying progress in the direction of his imaginative and prescient for this system, extra high recruits like Davidson will make the selection to come back to UMass.
