It was a disastrous season on the ice for first year Boston University head coach David Quinn, but what they lacked in on-ice victories, the staff made up for in recruiting victories. The Terriers landed another highly-touted prospect on Tuesday when Dallas Stars U16 forward Hank Crone announced via Twitter that he has committed to Boston University:
Excited to announce that I have committed to Boston University and can't wait to play college hockey for the Terriers. #BU— Hank Crone (@hankcrone_) April 8, 2014
Crone is a '98 forward originally from Texas. Last February we compared Crone's style of play to another Boston University forward that also hails from the Lone Star state:
Hank Crone-F-Dallas Jr Stars- Crone is a prototypical waterbug forward. Quick feet and quick hands, with great offensive instincts. Reminds me a bit of a another player from Texas in Cason Hohmann.
It was reported last weekend that Crone had signed a tender agreement with the Omaha Lancers of the USHL, meaning Crone will play in at least 50% of Omaha's games next season, and will likely play with the Lancers until he matriculates to BU in 2016-17.
