Prospective Sioux Recruits

Recommended Posts

The reason I included the AJHL in my statement is because we have a top ranked goaltender coming in here next year from that league. I obviously don't consider the AJHL on par with the USHL and BCHL, but I would give it a slight edge over the SJHL and MJHL.

I wouldn't, not based on the most recent talent pools. Manitoba has been on an upswing relative to the other Prairie Provinces for about a decade now and that trend will continue for a little longer. The Sioux are actually benefiting from that upswing directly in recruit's like Toews and Gregoire.

Wade Poplawski is an example of what the MJHL can produce and someone that may have been undervalued because he played in the MJHL. He is currently a rookie on the Colgate team playing first D-pair minutes, on the 1st powerplay unit and penalty kill. I know that he is one that the Sioux could have used even if you don't think that much of Colgate. He would have been a terrific PP quarterback with his exceptional vision and intelligence. He also would have stayed all four/five years of his college eligibility.

Okposo wasn't playing or working hard. He was pouting and he left, still haven't seen him on the Island......Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.

Maybe Ness has been contacted.....

During the first intermssion of the Wild radio broadcast last night, JP Parise was interviewed, talking mainly about Zach. He was asked a question about SSM, where he talked about what the SSM program focuses on - skill development and team building. He specifically mentioned Kyle Okposo when discussing character, hard work and being a good teammate.

By all accounts he has been a good teammate in Lowell, as well as with Team USA/WJT. We'll probably never really know what went on at UMTC that caused Kyle to leave mid-season. Maybe he had a bad, shelfish attitude. Or maybe he felt he had to leave because "the program" was not what he anticipated/was led to believe. On the surface it looks like he bailed on his teammates. Maybe. Or maybe he was the one misled/bailed.

None of us know. None of us.

Or maybe, as has been rumored, he just really didn't like school that well. D1 sports are a huge commitment because you still have to go to school full-time.

It's been confirmed on GPL that Lee has NOT committed to Harvard, though he will be visiting there this summer. Everson verballed a long time ago, so his commitment is solid / true.

Other than Caruth (UMD) and Moffatt (Michigan), are there any others on that list already committed to DI?

Somehow I think Rust has committed somewhere already, but I can't be sure.

I wasn't informed on anything, but it may have been Danny Mattson. Sometimes we have committed players come up for games (Kristo, Gleason, and Nick Mattson already have this year), and Danny isn't playing right now so it may have been him.

Also, Tyler Pitlick committed to MSU, Mankato.

Don't know if he was an interest by the Sioux, but I did hear good things about him.
