Boston College continued it's hot streak on the recruiting trail as they received a commitment from top 2000 defenseman Adam Samuelssson, brother of former Eagle Philip and son of Rangers legend Ulf. The youngest Samuelsson, a product of the Connecticut Jr Rangers, is a 6'3 mammoth that, according to those who have seen him play, has a solid stride and can move the puck. It appears that he plays a style similar to that of Steven Santini. Over the Boards described him as "another serious pick up for BC, imposing, high end defender." Samuelsson will be a strong candidate for the National Development Program next season.
In my opinion, things are really looking good on the recruiting trail. After a couple of rough months last winter, the staff has received several big time verbal commitments from Samuelsson, Pat Giles, Jake Tortora, Joe Cassetti, and Spencer Knight. Obviously, a lot will change between now and the time these guys arrive on campus but the coaches have done a terrific job of solidifying the future.
The two big names to watch out for now are 2001 forward Pat Moynihan of Nobles and 2000 forward Joel Farabee of New York. SB Nation's Jeff Cox reported this afternoon that BC has offered Moynihan who also has interest from several Ivy League schools and arch rival Boston University.
We shall see what happens but as of now, all is well in BC Hockey world.
