Tyler Nanne Commits to Ohio State

Tyler Nanne - Matt Christians

Tyler Nanne announced his commitment to Ohio State via Twitter.

A little over a month after his older brother Lou committed to RPI, Tyler Nanne has chosen Ohio State as his destination to play college hockey. The grandson of the legendary Lou Nanne is a '96 playing his senior season at Edina High School.

Nanne is capable of playing both forward and defense, but has focused more on playing the blue line in the past year. He's a smaller defenseman, listed at 5'10" 175 lbs., but has elite-level agility and a surprisingly heavy shot for his size.

Nanne is one of the favorites to win the prestigious Minnesota Mr. Hockey Award, and is a potential NHL Draft pick this summer. His cousin Vinni Lettieri plays for the University of Minnesota. Nanne will play for Steve Rohlik at Ohio State. It is a nice pickup for the Buckeyes who lost several commits when Mark Osiecki was let go this past summer.
