Now that Coach Carvel and his staff have indicated that they’re done assembling their first recruiting class and we know about the current players who will not be returning next year, it’s time to take a fresh look at where the program is from a recruiting standpoint. Recruiting is a fluid situation even in normal situations, so it’s been a challenge to try to keep up with all the new names that have recently committed while following which previous recruits are still committed to the school. I believe all my information is up to date. So first up, let’s take a look at the future Minutemen due in Amherst this fall.

Because of the weird schedule lately I haven’t had a chance to post a recruit update since 12/22. At that time UMass recruits Shane Bear and Cale Makar had just won gold for Canada-West at the World Junior A Championships. In the last few days the Brooks Bandits posted this really interesting video with Bear and Makar about their experience at the international competition. Bear seems like a very mature and poised person from the interview. It’s also interesting to hear him talk about what he learned from last year when he tried out but didn’t make the cut and how he learned from it.

In last week’s post I reported that defenseman Justin Dixson signed his National Letter of Intent to play at the University of Massachusetts. I’ve also learned that defensemen Jake Massie and Cale Makar signed their NLIs during the early signing period which ended last week. The signings help assure that coach John Micheletto and his staff are set at the blueline for years to come.

The midweek game against Boston College last week meant no opportunity to check in on the recruits, so we have two weeks of games to catch up on. We will likely be seeing news of letter of intent’s being signed, as the early signing period opens tomorrow. Kyler Nachtigall and Ty Pelton-Byce are the only recruits who have already completed their NLIs. I would assume you’d see Shane Bear, Jake Massie, and possible Shane Bear, and Jake McCarthy signing their letters of intent during this signing period.

Time to take a look at the future Minutemen. Kyler Nachtigall, Troy Conzo, and Shane Bear each had multiple point weeks north of the border while Ty Pelton-Byce and John Leonard scored goals in the USHL this week.
