While I understand staying in good graces with the Mission, I would think giving potential players honest feedback of where they stand is the key. The Mission don't have much uncommitted in the next few years either. Mersch has not exactly dominated the USHL in his first 2 seasons there and Abate was good at Janesville, but played in the NAHL and not the highest level of junior A. Both player have a lot to prove in the USHL this season if they expect to actually get playing time at an upper level D1 school and I would expect the UW staff has made them well of aware of that. When it comes to these verbal commits, we don't really know what the commitment is from a financial standpoint. I doubt UW at any point told a player of the level of Abate/Mersch they are getting a full ride and it is more of a keep developing and we'll sort it out.

    Cruikshank is an Eaves forward recruit as well but he has put up points (albeit in the scoring-happy BCHL). I would think his skating ability is attractive to the new staff as well since they seem to be amassing guys that can really skate. Messner is an Eaves forward recruit as well but he seems to have fared pretty well in the USHL so far.

    Jeez,I'm getting old. About 15 years ago and beyond, I knew about every 1983 to 1988 kid; strengths, weaknesses, possible destinations, etc. Now we're looking at 2000's to 2002's.

    Get off my lawn.

    With the Caufields committing I think I have Wisconsin at 29 commits from 2018-2020 which is crazy. Something has to give.

    I don't know how much scholarship money would be committed to the older brother here based on I don't think he is a blue chip/full scholarship type of recruit and the in state tuition is another discount advantage for the home state school. Likewise, even for the younger Caufield an in state 75% paid tuition is probably similar to what any other out of state school's "full" (generally 90%) scholarship tuition would be. Further, we have no idea what percentage of a scholarship any of the committed kids have actually been promised.

    My guess is something already has given and the people that need to know do and we'll find out in due time.

    Spreadsheet is updated. I have him listed as a '19-'20 at this point.

    Won't end well. Seen this play out before. Only thing I can think of is that Granato isn't planning on being around a long time. Wants to win in short term regardless of consequences.

    There is always fallout from pushing too many kids back and pulling offers. Always. I think they have some slack with the coaching change, but the number of recruits at this point is beyond obscene. Even if you anticipate one and done's, they'll still have to push a lot back or pull scholarships.

    There is no public information that the Caufields have committed to Wisconsin. If you have that information I'd appreciate a link.

    I have 5 previous Eaves recruits on the recruiting spreadsheet. Based on numbers, you would have to guess that at least 3 will not be coming next year.

    That would be great to know. As it stands now having 16+ Forwards and 10+ Defenseman is quite excessive.

    Spreadsheet updated again.

    It's getting crazy right now. They have to be projecting a large number of Eaves recruits not coming and players leaving early.
