Eden Prairie High School forward Michael Graham announced via Twitter on Monday evening that he has committed to Minnesota Duluth:
Proud to announce my commitment to University of Minnesota Duluth! Thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way! #Bulldogs— Michael Graham (@MGraham19) September 9, 2014
We wrote about Graham, a late-'97 birthdate, earlier this summer after the Minnesota Hockey Model Camp:
Michael Graham, '97+, Eden Prairie HS-Graham is a kid that for whatever reason, often gets overlooked among MN HS prospects, likely because he's not the fastest skater and isn't as flashy, but he's a big kid with soft hands and the ability to make plays in tight spaces. He's not eligible for the NHL Draft until 2016 either, at which point he'll likely be in the conversation to be selected.
Graham is just beginning his junior season of high school, so he won't join UMD until 2016 at the earliest. His USHL rights are held by the Fargo Force.
