Ohio State just got one of its biggest commitments in a while from a draft eligible forward out of famed Shattuck-St. Mary's' program in Minnesota. Vincent de Mey, a Los Angeles native, committed to the Buckeyes improving hockey team on Friday afternoon according to SB Nation College Hockey.
de Mey, while a native of the Sunshine State, has long been a member of Shattuck-St. Mary's heralded program that has produced the likes of Sidney Crosby and Zach Parise. According to EliteProspects, he's been playing for their program since 2011-12 on their Bantam T1, Midget AA, U16 and Boys Prep squads but is looking to go into NCAA hockey after leaving the program and heading into the 2016 NHL Draft.
SB Nation College Hockey lists him as a potential late round draft pick, something Ohio State hasn't had much of recently. After putting up 50 points in 54 games last season on the Boys Prep team, de Mey has broken out this year and currently has 44 points in only 31 games to lead the squad.
He stands at 6'1, 179 pounds, so he's got a solid frame to grow into, though he doesn't have the raw strength and speed that would've gotten him noticed before this. But at some point, you can't argue with production and de Mey has that in spades.
