Red and the staff finish a great recruiting month as Michigan gets a commitment from Chicago Young Americans U-16 forward James Sanchez. There's not a lot of information out there right now and it will be some time before he gets to campus being a 98, but his stock is beginning to trend upwards. Listed at 6'2, 180 Sanchez projects to a grinding power forward at the next level; he skates well for his size but needs to work on his offensive skill set. He is one of two 98's on the team; the rest are 97's so he's playing up a level.
Sanchez currently ranks 4th on CYA in scoring, but has played five games less than the players above him. His 0.93 PPG Average is second behind the team's leading scorer. Chris Dilks of sbncollegehockey thinks Sanchez will get a chance to tryout for the NTDP program.
