1999-born center Logan Hutsko has announced his commitment to Boston College, according to media reports (including College Hockey Inc.'s official recruit tracking Twitter account). Hutsko had decommitted from Penn State around Oct. 14, as was reported by Over The Boards.
Another top prospect re-opened their recruitment, NTDP-99 F Logan Hutsko (formerly PSU). Will be a coup offensively for whoever lands him.— Over The Boards (@OverTheBoards) October 14, 2015
The N.J. born center spent the past three years playing at Shattuck St. Mary's, registering 90 points in 2014-15. Hutsko is now playing on the US National U17 team, where in 10 games he has registered five points, with one goal and four assists.
This represents a decent growing trend for the Eagles. A growing concern amongst hockey recruiting prognosticators for the Eagles is a concern for the future of the B.C. program post-Jerry York. Given the past couple of months with recruiting, the concerns have been somewhat allayed.
As for Penn State, where Hutsko had decommitted, a B1G problem has emerged. Despite the perceived strength of the conference, as well as the new arena, Penn State still pales in comparison to programs like B.C. when attracting recruits. With Hutsko, the problem manifested in a B1G way.
