Luke McInnis Commits to Boston College

Matt Dewkett

Following a strong showing at the recent USA Hockey Select 16 Festival, Hingham High School/Dexter Prep '98-born defenseman Luke McInnis announced via Twitter on Friday that he has verbally committed to Boston College.

It's no surprise to see McInnis pledge to the Eagles. His father Marty starred at Boston College for three seasons in the early '90s before a long NHL career. Marty McInnis also served as a volunteer assistant coach on Jerry York's staff at Boston College last season.

As for the younger McInnis, SBN College Hockey's Jeff Cox ranked McInnis as the fourth-best fdefenseman at last week's Select 16 Festival. Here was his scouting report of McInnis:

4. Luke McInnis (#4 Columbia) 5-10/170 Hingham High School/Dexter Prep - This was by far the most impressed I've been with him. I had seen him during the high school season and thought he was a good player, but not this good. He is a terrific skater, always has his head up looking for an outlet pass. He makes smart plays and doesn't try to do too much. He's a good power play QB who needs to be a little more consistently strong in his own end.

Following the camp, McInnis was selected to play for the US at the Five Nations tournament later this summer in Germany.
