Who says this week is just reserved for football recruiting?
UND has garnered a second verbal commitment today — Vernon Vipers forward Adam Tambellini says he’s headed to UND in either 2012 or 2013.
Tambellini is the son of Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini and the brother of former Michigan star Jeff Tambellini.
He chose UND over Minnesota, Michigan, Penn State and Portland of the WHL.
Tambellini made his official visit during UND’s 2-1 win over Minnesota in Ralph Englestad Arena.
“He’s a high-end, offensively talented player,” Vernon coach Jason Williamson said. “He can get the puck in the back of the net. He was heavily recruited. He could have picked wherever he wanted to go.”
Tambellini gained notoriety last year, leading his team to the championship at the Mac’s midget tournament. He scored all of his team’s goals in a 3-2 victory in the championship.
