"UNH Commit Robert Cronin: A Smart, Poised Forward"
Includes interview, video highlights, scouting report and statistics.
I believe this to be a relatively close list of recruits but there always seems to be 1-2 who come in under the radar. I also noticed that no goalies are listed:
Bahn, Lucas D 5-10, 165 Hendersonville, Tenn. West Kelowna Warriors << Some have reported he decommited but is still listed as coming.
Eriksson, Kalle D 5-10, 181 Leksand, Sweden Madison Capitols
McElhaney, Nolan D 6-3 , 190 Yorba Linda, Calif. Omaha Lancers
Stevenson, Chase F 5-11, 170 West Kelowna, B.C. West Kelowna (BCHL)
Sweeney, Connor F 6-2 , 194 North Andover, Mass. Lawrence Academy (NEPrep)
Wazny, Marek C 6-1 , 174 Frisco, Texas Burlington (OJHL)
Devlin, Liam F 5-9 , 161 Needham, Mass. St. Sebastian's School
Jones, Zack F 5-9 , 154 Bridgewater, Mass. Boston Jr. Bandits
Margel, William W/C 5-9 , 163 Potomac, Md. Selects Hockey Academy 18U
Stützle, Tim F 5-11, 165 Viersen, Germany Jungadler Mannheim U20
Ardanaz, Nicolas D 5-8 , 150 Langley, B.C. Vernon Vipers
Sacco, David F 6-0 , 181 Middleton, Mass. Lawrence Academy
Winters, Morgan F 5-10, 165 Osprey, Fla. Boston Little Bruins

Bahn is out per his BCHL roster page, which has removed his commitment. He's still listed on Elite Prospects as in the UNH pipeline, but they often take longer to learn of the decommitments as opposed to the commitments. It is far less exciting news to share...
BIG junior season for UNH and the 2020 class. That is a key class if UNH has real expectations of getting back to the top. They'll still need to add to this class moving forward - but of the players already committed it will be huge to see if they can get into the USHL and deliver while they're there...
Stutzle is a lock for Sioux City. Sioux Falls should still hold Margel's rights and they would have to be intrigued by his 91-point season at Selects.
Curran's, Jones' and the rests' prospects for next season are harder to predict, but they'd really be best served getting out of the East - If not the USHL, than hopefully the BCHL. It would be better for their development and a better indication that they can be difference makers at the college level.
Ardanaz should be up full-time in the BCHL.
Lots of ??? 2020 and beyond and we should finally get some answers...

The table in this article was accurate as of Feb 8th:
Since then, Lucas Bahn and UNH ended there commitment to one another. Robert Cronin committed for 2020 or 2021:
It’s important to note that the target date for enrollment established by the UNH coaches and the committed player is often a window of 2 years. That’s why it’s sometimes not accurate to list a single year as the time a committed player will definitely enroll.

3.75⭐️JP Turner to UNH. Uses his body well on the cycle; picks pucks w/ease. Can drag and fire and is a pure scorer. Good sense up the ice with a scorer’s blade. 2003 is mature, prepared, balanced, rugged and direct. High ceiling. Several reports below.— Neutral Zone (@_Neutral_Zone) March 16, 2019

Commitment - and one that may be for next season in Lucas Herrmann (Madison - USHL). Formerly committed to Niagara and still listed as a Niagara recruit on the USHL website and Elite Prospects. Turns 19 in August. Played at Nichols School, the alma mater of Andrew Poturalski...
13-8–21 in 50+ games and a -24. Six of his goals on the PP.
Lose a Lucas, gain a Lucas (sounds like a good thread title).
