Boston College Hockey Recruiting: Former Notre Dame Recruit Sonny Milano Switches Commitment

The rich get richer.


Addazio and the football team weren't the only ones making headlines this weekend.

Sir Jerry York and the Boston College hockey team received a verbal commitment from Sonny Milano. The 5-foot-10, 176 pound '96 forward had verbally committed to Notre Dame, but will now head to Boston College next fall.

Milano, who currently plays for the U.S. National Development Program's U-18 team, is ranked as the number 2 recruit in next year's class according to College Hockey News. The Massapequa, New York native is one of the few college recruits considered an "A" prospect for the 2014 NHL Entry draft. Last year, Milano potted 20 goals and added 26 assists in 56 games for the USNTDP.

Milano is a skilled winger with good hands who likes to carry the puck and have it on his stick. He has a quick first step as well as good straight line speed and able to use his edges well to elude and evade. He uses finesse puck skills and change of direction to beat defenders.

Milano is expected to join another stellar recruiting class next fall that includes forwards Zachary Sanford, Tanner MacMaster, Joey Dudek and Alex Tuch. Welcome to the Heights, Sonny!
