Harvard University landed arguably the top 2000-born hockey player in the United States on Wednesday when Bode Wilde announced his commitment to play college hockey for the Crimson.

Wilde, a 6-3 man child, is a physical defenseman with tremendous offensive upside as well. He has all the physical tools to develop into an elite defender. A dual citizen, Wilde played bantam hockey for the Honeybaked program the past two years. He will be joining the Chicago Mission 16U team for the upcoming season.

Wilde, a resident of Plymouth, Mich., will be eligible for the 2016 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Draft as well as a likely selection to join the US National Team Development Program (USNTDP) U-17 Team for the following season.
