O'Neill Commits to Maine

This story broke on USHR recently.

Omaha's Will O'Neill has committed to Maine for 2008. Previously, he was committed to New Hampshire.

In the summer of 2006, O’Neill, who had played at Tabor Academy as a sophomore and junior, committed to UNH and left Tabor to spend his 12th grade season in the USHL with the Omaha Lancers. However, the Salem, Mass. native reported out of shape, didn’t get off to a good start, and wound up having to play out of position at forward at times in the second half. On top of all that, he was struggling academically, and, for a while, his getting through the clearinghouse looked to be in jeopardy. UNH cut their ties with O'Neill during the season.

It sounds like O'Neill reported to Omaha in better shape this season and should have a better year on the ice.
