Who cares if he verbally committed; not like the team is tied to him in any way. If he pans out, great, most likely he ends up a Gopher. If his development gets derailed, move on to somebody else.

Not saying that’s ideal or the way the whole thing should go down, but it’s reality.

Are we the Minnesota Stinking BADgers now???

Ha … I don’t think they’ll make a habit of it like Eaves did but I’m just pointing out there’s no tangible downside for either party to an early verbal commitment. I’d rather the Cedar Rapids team not playing due to Covid and his USHL job disappearing due to that wasn’t great for his development.
