Matt White To Join UNH In 2009

Extending the prospects of ultimate success for the coming seasons, Matt White, selected UNH on March 2nd (I know four days late, I can't do it all you know, at least I can't do it all in an extremely timely manner - ANYWAY...).

Matt has beaten his own path to the Whittemore Center doors. This 5'11', 170 lb. recruit was highly, well, recruited throughout the United States and according to Chris "There's Not Much Uncertainty Here" Heisenberg (How do you do it Chris?!), quoting Sioux City Musketeers assistant coach, Bobby Kinsella, "He was one of the most sought-after players in the United States and was heavily recruited by the U.S. National Development Program." Sorry Coach Foley.

He was selected by Sioux City but choose to attend Cushing Prep instead and has put together 15 goals and 45 assists in 29 games so far this season, his junior year. Cushing is also home to another recruit sought after by our 'Cats, Ryan Bourque, a sophomore, who has 19 goals and 31 assists - together with their teammates Cushing has put together a 22-0-1 Div. 1 Prep School record this year as of Feb. 19th. White and Bourque are the second and third leading scorers respectively. The only downside to this story is having to watch Cushing's top scorer, New Hampshire native, Broc Little (Rindge, NH) ship off to Yale. I look forward to the day that all top New Hampshire recruits consider UNH as their first choice, and begrudgingly Dartmouth as their second. But in the end you have to find what fits for yourself and I think that any player that chooses UNH sees it like home just as I did.

Go 'Cats!
