I hope that SA had better reasons for recruiting Wilson. :)

Cornell had offered him, so that makes it even sweeter!

Actually, that means he could be a pylon. :eek:

That makes it sound we had little or no prior information about him. I hope and suspect that isn't the case. Relying on the performance in one game doesn't seem prudent unless he will be a recruited walk-on which is unlikely.

Doubtful - not this staff's M.O.

I agree, and tried to say that it wasn't the case. The link just made it sound that way.

I realized that, and I hope it is true. I guess that I will just ignore OTB's wording. :)

College Hockey Inc (http://www.collegecommitments.com/DepthChart.aspx?i7cq9=-460592896) also has Wilson as a 2014 recruit. The fact that all our defensive recruits in our future play the left side sticks out like a sore thumb, especially when Reno is moved to his proper year.

Wilson hasn't shown up yet on Chris Heisenberg's website.

Wouldn't he (or Vines or even Graham) have seen him play along with Tironese? Perhaps in reviewing what was seen with him, or similar to how we picked up O'Grady, maybe Tironese dropped a hint to look at Wilson as well?

Plus, from the recruit's point of view, he isn't going to just accept a walk-on or scholarship offer out of the blue, not at 19 especially.

That is a good point, however he could have gotten information from Evan Tironese and based his decision on that.

Jared Wilson's Twitter (https://twitter.com/JaredWilson27) account has his tweet (https://twitter.com/JaredWilson27/status/381083044993441792) announcing his committal as well as congratulatory tweets including one by the AV Bulldogs (https://twitter.com/AVBulldogs/status/381089091808292865).

Very true. Sounds like a great pickup.

After all that speculating about what the decision to give Wilson an offer was based on, this was posted (http://hammersdogs.blogspot.com/2013/09/jared-wilson-committs-to-rpi-darian.html).


Former Bulldog Head Coach (2009-2010) Nolan Graham is an Assistant Coach at RPI, and apparently he liked what he saw in person in Wilson at the BCHL Showcase.

The rest of the article is also worth reading.

One thing we can definitely count on from Alberni Valley at this point is that they aren't going to butcher the name of our school and won't mistake our location, either. :)

One can never be sure how anyone will spell Rennselear. ;)

BTW, it's good to see that SA is apparently not persona non grata at AV after whatever influence he used to get Evan Tironese to leave the team.

I also wonder where else SA is going to be on this four-day recruiting trip and if another signing is imminent.
