I doubt he's going to BU. Or BC.

So then where do you think he's going?? I'm not saying I disagree, but give us some insight.

UVM should have a scholarship available since Girgensons signed with Buffalo.

And they are the closest to home. I do wonder if eithr Umass or Northeastern has some free money

I would love to see him end up at a Lowell, Maine, Merrimack...one of the underdogs to land top talent these days...but I'm guessing it will be UVM, too.

That's the question. who has money available at this late date. I assume this would have to be a package deal with his brother.

Kevin Roy is going to Penn State. The Roy family is very impressed with how Penn State "honors" its "commitment" to high ethical standards.

Correct me if I'm wrong but once you sign a L.O.I, does it not preclude you from changing your mind and opting for another program?? Isn't there some type of penalty involved??

You don't sign an LOI for Ivy League schools.

That would be juicy if there was tampering by Penn State. It would just be the icing on the cake now wouldn't it.

It's ludicrous to assume that after decommitting from Brown because supposedly the Brown hockey program doesn't have the national stature that the Roy family appears to be looking for, Kevin would end up at Lowell, Merrimack, Northeastern, U Mass or Vermont. If he does go the college route, it's more likely that it would be to a place like BC, BU, or Wisconsin.

But, who knows, maybe Brown09's is right and the Roy family will choose Penn State. For some reason, it seems highly appropriate.

I mean HEA or ECAC. Kind of easy to pick which has better talent.

Here's a link to a JULY 14 radio interview in which Kevin Roy reiterates the reasons why he was supposedly "committed" to playing at Brown. He even mentioned the date he was due at Brown. This section of the interview starts with about six minutes left.

It appears that what was at stake was a school with national hockey prominence, and that certainly isn't Northeastern, Merrimack, Lowell, U Mass, or Vermont. Besides, after BC, BU, and to a certain extent Maine and UNH, the talent level at Hockey East is pretty mediocre.

Incidentally, over the past couple of seasons Brown's record against Hockey East schools is 3-0-3, with wins over BU, UNH and PC.

Well, every one of those programs has at least made the NCAA Tournament within the last five years so...

Either way, if he intended to not go, he should've just decommitted a while ago unless something legitimately came up within the last week.

After listening to the interview, PSU may be a good place for Kevin to attend.

I'll throw 2cents into the pot....let's see, IIRC almost to the day he walked out the door, Nate Leaman said he wasn't going.....Roy ends up @ Providence?

No idea where he's going, but it is worth pointing out that a former assistant at Brown (who was there when Roy was recruited) is now at Northeastern. Any other former Brown guys now with other teams? Also, does anybody know who was responsible for Roy's commitment, or if he had a relationship with a particular coach?

I definitely feel for Brown. I know our situation was different, but we NU fans know all too well what it's like to see players back out of a commitment.

I believe he was recruited about two years ago by Jerry Keefe, a former PC player and present NU AC.

Mark Diver has in today's Providence Journal what appears to be an interview with Kevin about his decision. It is only available with an e-subscription which I do not have. Can anyone provide a summary of what Kevin said about his decision?
