UND has received a verbal commitment from 1997-born defenseman Christian Evers of the Omaha AAA U16 team.
Evers, at 6-foot-4, is considered to be one of the top 1997-born blue liners in the country. Evers has 10 points in 10 games so far this season.
The Omaha U16 site has a release on his commitment here.
UND currently has six committed defensemen and all are at least 6 feet tall. It appears that UND may have quite a large defensive corps in a few years: Keaton Thompson (6-0), Paul LaDue (6-1), Geoff Crisfield (6-2), Charlie Pelnik (6-3), Evers (6-4) and Ryan Mantha (6-5).
More to come in a bit.
