Boston College Hockey Recruiting: Miles Wood Commits To The Eagles

via bceagles.com

The rich get richer.

On Wednesday, Coach Jerry York landed another highly touted recruit to the embarrassment of riches that is Boston College hockey's future recruiting classes. Miles Wood, a 6-foot-2, 195 pound forward out of Noble and Greenough, has committed to Boston College.

The 6-foot-2, 195 pound forward previously committed to Brown before backing out of his commitment last month. According to CHN, Wood chooses Boston College over Boston University, the other finalist for his services.

Did I mention that this kid is highly regarded? Wood is considered the top uncommitted prospect according to OverTheBoards.net.

This season, Wood has taken a large step in his development. Nobles coach Brian Day quoted to us, on Miles' development, "Miles successfully has worked very hard this season to become a more savvy player with the puck who will take any open ice that is available to him but will move the puck when that is the play to be made. Through the course of this season we have seen a growing level of creativity in his game and a better understanding of how to create more time and space for he and his teammates. An incredibly dynamic player who will attack when he has the puck, he is developing into a more dynamic player who not only has the ability to finish but who has the ability to make those around him better. He is a great kid and a joy to coach."

Wood was selected in the fourth round (100th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils.

The Buffalo native is currently a junior at Nobles but could accelerate a year early, joining blueliner Noah Hanifin and forwards Joey Dudeck, Sonny Milano and Alex Tuch in next year's class. If he does, he'll almost certainly be a part of next year's #1 recruiting class and arguably the best class in the York era.
