Jeremy Bracco, one of the top forwards off of this year's NTDP U17 team had committed to Harvard last year, but apparently re-opened his recruitment and today announced that he has committed to Boston College:
Proud to announce my commitment to play college hockey for the Boston College Eagles #GoEagles #PackTheForum— jeremybracco (@jbracco97) April 30, 2014
Bracco is a smaller forward, with excellent edge-work on his skating and incredible hands. He led the NTDP U17s in scoring with 16 goals and 58 assists for 74 points.
The Eagles have had great success in recruiting players that had previously been committed to other schools. This past season, the Eagles recruited the NTDP U18s second-leading scorer Sonny Milano very shortly after Milano backed out of a verbal commitment to Notre Dame. This year's Hobey Baker winner, Johnny Gaudreau, was also verbally committed to Northeastern before he was recruited to Boston College.
