Sean Little Commits to Wisconsin

The Green Bay Gamblers website is reporting that Sean Little has committed to Wisconsin, and the forward will join the team starting in the Fall of 2010. Sean is the younger brother of Badger freshman Ryan Little, so we'll have brother's Little here in a few seasons. Sean currently plays w/ fellow Badger recruit Jefferson Dahl.

A Fond du Lac native, Sean played last season w/ the Madison Capitals. He attended the Select 17 Development Camp and praticapted w/ Team USA at the Ivan Hlinka tournament over the summer. The College Hockey Recruit Exchanges listed him over the summer a few times as a top player who hadn't committed yet.

I discussed Sean Little a little w/ Dplaya of the HIW blog during the High School Hockey Elite League. He told me Sean had received interest from Wisconsin, but from other schools as well. Good to see that he decided to get on board. {Edited to add: Dplaya reports on his blog that Sean was considering offers from Denver, Boston U, Michigan State and another school that didn't make the final cut.}

Its been a rollercoaster week for Wisconsin recruiting, and I'm sure it will stay that way for sometime. I'm heading to the Gamblers game Wednesday night, I'll have a scouting report next weekend on Jefferson Dahl and Sean Little.

While I still have issues w/ over recruiting, we need forwards for 2010, here is how things look for 2010 as of right now.

Forwards

Mark Zengerle
Cody Strang
Matt Paape (or 2011)
Gavin Hartzog (or 2009)
Jefferson Dahl
Tyler Lapic
Sean Little

That seems like a lot, but we lose a huge class of kids, and as we've seen over the past 4 months never know what is going to happen. Hang on for the ride!
