The biggest reason for starting a new thread ... a commitment that I think most of us thought would come in 2014, will actually be heading to school this year.
Michael Kapla has been tagged to join the roster in a few months.
So the 2013 incoming class (I believe) is now:
D Michael Kapla, Sioux City (USHL)
D Corey Scammon, Brooks Bandits (AJHL)
D Dylan Zink, Jamestown (NAHL)
F Evan Campbell, Langley (BCHL)
F Joe Gambardella, Des Moines (USHL)
F Chris Maniccia, Smiths Falls (CCHL)
F Dylan Shapiro, Rochester (EJHL)
The remaining recruits that have committed to Lowell already ... the majority might be seen playing in the USHL this upcoming season.
Currently, I'd guesstimate there are five '14 recruits. Forwards Evan Anderson (Langley, BCHL), Ryan Collins (Ottawa, CCHL), CJ Smith (Jamestown, NAHL) and Tyler Sifferlen (Malden Catholic HS) along with defenseman Tyler Mueller (Cowichan Valley, BCHL). Collins, Smith and Sifferlen were all drafted by USHL teams in the Phase 2 draft. Smith was picked in the second round, #17 overall by Muskegon, while Collins (15th round, 211 overall) was chosen by Indiana and Sifferlen (16th round, 230 overall) was chosen by Cedar Rapids.
Two 2015 incoming recruits were drafted in the first round of the USHL Phase 2 draft - Tommy Panico (#3 overall, Muskegon) and Nick Master (#5 overall, Cedar Rapids). Panico had played for the Philadelphia Jr Flyers (AYHL, Tier 1 Elite), while Master had been with Team Comcast (AYHL, Tier 1 Elite).
The only current '16 recruit is Colin O'Neill, who played for Washington (AYHL, Tier 1 Elite) and was drafted in the USHL's 14th round, 204 overall, by Muskegon.
