Another commitment

Minnesota State received another commitment from a Sioux Falls Stampede forward this week, as C.J. Franklin announced via Twitter he will be heading to MSU:

Franklin will join Stampede teammate Zeb Knutson with the Mavericks. I'm guessing both will come to MSU in 2014.

The 5-foot-10, 184-pound forward is a Forest Lake native and played high school hockey there for coach Aaron Forsythe, a former MSU defenseman. Franklin is tied for third on Sioux Falls (with Knutson) with 28 points, including 13 goals. He's also +16 in 33 games with 49 PIMs. Sioux Falls is in first place in the USHL's Western Conference.

This is Franklin's first year in the USHL. As a senior at Forest Lake, he had 15 goals and 42 points in 27 games.

I'm excited about the commitments of these two! I live in Sioux Falls and attend more than my fair share of Stampede games. Zeb and CJ arevery talented players, and both skate on the top-line together. Can't wait to see them skating for my Mavericks when the time comes!
