Hockey: The Recruiting That Must Not Speak Its Name
The newest Wolverines wanna cookie. Wanna
cookie real bad, Mister. Mister blogman. We
like Dora the Explorer, Mister blogman. Yay.
So Chris Heisenberg is reporting that Michigan has two hockey commits for... 2008(!). These kids, who both play for Honeybaked AAA, were born in 1990. They have no idea who Vanilla Ice is. "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em" makes no sense to them whatsoever. C&C Music Factory? A mere rumor. I am old, about to die in 3... 2... 1...
Guess not. Wow, music sucked in the early 90s. Anyway. They have names: AJ Jenks and Robbie Czarnik. They are forwards. They score a lot for their teams. They can't drive. Heisenberg lists Jenks at 6'2", 174, which is freaking huge for a hockey player who just turned 15. They're probably somewhere between pretty and really amazingly good for Michigan to offer scholarships to them this early. The last guy who committed that young was Jack Johnson. He is amazingly good. So, hurray, I guess. No doubt nefarious OHL clubs will make runs at them, and it's really bold to project these guys as high level D-I players so far into the future. It worked out last time (knock on wood).
