The rich get richer.

Ian McCoshen, one of the top players eligible for next June's NHL Entry Draft, has committed to play hockey at Boston College next fall. The 6-foot-2, 207 pound defenseman chooses Boston College over Nebraska-Omaha, Minnesota-Duluth, Ohio State and North Dakota. McCoshen, who currently plays for the USHL's Waterloo Black Hawks, has one goal, four points and a plus-13 this season to go along with eight goals, 20 points, 43 PIM and a plus-4 rating in 55 games last season.

The Faribault, Minnesota native had good things to say about the program after visiting.

"We have a good freshman class coming in [at Boston College]," McCoshen told NHL.com via email. "When I visited the guys at BC, they really opened up to me and I was able to see how great they are and how fine the hockey program is, as well."

"When the tour was almost done, it was almost surreal that I was even there and it made me realize how fortunate I am," he continued. "The excitement my family and I have about this decision is incredible."

McCoshen was one of only five USHL players ranked as an A skater on NHL's Central Scouting's preliminary watch list. The defenseman joins an absolutely filthy recruiting class that already includes blueliners Sam Piazza (USHL's Chicago Steel), Scott Savage (USA Under 18 NTDP Team) and Steve Santini (USA NTDP).
