Michigan picked up a commitment from forward A.J. Treais, a 1991 birthdate from the Little Caesar's organization, and Jon Merrill, a 1992 defenseman from Little Caesar's.
I got the opportunity to see Treais play at the Select 15s and I was very impressed. He's got outstanding speed and is a great puckhandler. Definitely a nice commitment for Michigan.
I'm still looking for info on Merrill. A 1992 birthdate is an extremely early commitment, even for Michigan, so he must be something special.
Not surprisingly, there is little to be found on Merrill. He's playing for Little Caesar's Midget Minor team, meaning he's playing up a year. He was born on February 3rd, 1992, meaning he is 14 years and 8 months old, which sets a new record for youngest player to verbally commit to a college hockey team. He's already listed at 6'2" 175 lbs.
