The new coaching staff at the University of Wisconsin has been hitting the recruiting trail since taking in Madison this spring and have landed a major commitment from the 2000 birth year in Minnetonka(MN) High School defenseman K'andre Miller.
Congratulations to K'andre Miller on his commitment to the University of Wisconsin!— MinnetonkaBoysHockey (@TonkaBoysPuck) June 16, 2016
Miller will skate next season for the NTDP U17 team.
Miller is a tall, lanky, very raw prospect with enormous potential. He skated at forward up until this past year's high school season when he converted back to the blue line and was better able to take advantage of his smooth hands and heavy shot from the blue line. As he continues to fill out, he has rare potential as a big, tough defenseman with above average skill for a player his size.
Wisconsin, especially under former and now current assistant coach Mark Osiecki, have had tremendous success developing defensemen over the years, especially out of the state of Minnesota with players like Tom Gilbert, Ryan McDonagh, and Jake Gardiner, a fellow Minnetonka alum like Miller.
