      Boston University continues their incredible week by landing the top recruit available, Macklin Celebrini out of Shattuck. Celebrini is our #1 ranked skater in the 2006 class and will play for the @ChicagoSteel this coming season. Just an incredible week for the Terriers.

      Younger brother of D Aiden Celebrini who committed last month. Despite being one of the youngest on Shattuck 18U Prep, led the team with 117 points. 50 goals.

        As I recall we were all told about Coach O'Connell's recruiting prowess but he was clueless when it came to actually having to coach a team on the ice. I'm glad BU had the change, but they gambled by going with another former player without any head coaching experience. It's going to take more than getting some top recruits to make me believe they made the right choice.

        • We could see Celebrini as early as 23-24. Apparently he's accelerating classes. If that's the case he'd be 17 years old his whole freshman season, being a June birthday. Came down to BU and Wisconsin. Glad he chose BU.

            • Anybody else hearing that Eiserman is leaning towards BU? If that happens, might be the best BU class ever.

                This came out July 27th "Word on the street is that Boston University is the front-runner". Playing with Celebrini past two seasons should only help.

                  Certainly right up there, although technically, if Macklin accelerates (as one outlet indicated he might), then he wouldn't come in with the rest of the guys that are declaring this week. If Eiserman commits to BU, I would assume he wouldn't be looking to accelerate since he is going the USNTDP route which is clearly a two-year thing. Come to think of it, if Celebrini is as good as advertised and ends up as a Top 5 pick in the 2024 draft, that could mean that they wouldn't actually play together at BU. But I guess the optimist in me would say that maybe Celebrini would want to come back for a sophomore season to play with his former teammate. I know, this is getting a little ahead of things...

                  But back to the class, IIRC, Quinn's first recruiting group included 4 guys that one could have argued were the top 2 forwards and top 2 d-men available: Keller, Bellows, Fabbro, and Krys. But I don't recall who the other top guys were that year.

                    A) Hopefully Celebrini will want to spend another year with his brother and stay more than one year

                    B) Oettinger was the other star freshman coming in, although Harper was the pleasant surprise of the class

                      Didn't we all?? While some father's and son's at that age have a relationship where dad has positive influence. But there are plenty of others where junior is going to do the exact opposite of what pops wants simply because it is what pops wants. Some kids are hell-bent on demonstrating that they made the decision themselves, even if it is a bad one and they know it.

                        A very valid point. On-ice results will determine the wisdom of BU’s choice, which has been widely applaud in the hockey community—as has been the staff Jay has assembled. The newly committed recruits, except possibly M. Celebrini, are two years away. Right now, with an experienced senior-heavy squad and a top-drawer goalie, we’ll be looking for on-ice success from the start. Pandolfo says he wants BU to play fast and be a “hard team to play against.” The pieces are there. Let’s see what he and his staff can deliver.

                        Quinn’s first recruit class was actually the ’15-’16 group. He and Greeley recruited McAvoy, Greenway and JFK, while Carpenter committed just prior to Quinn’s appointment. Ryan Cloonan was in that class too—actually had 4 goals, 14 points as a freshman.

                        RE: Celebrini possibly accelerating, the only other 17-year-old BU freshmen I can recall are Jack Eichel, Chris Heron and (thanks, buoldtimer) Jay Pandolfo.

                          I think I got Quinn's classes mixed up perhaps because of timing of commitment vs. actual time of enrollment. I feel like the thinking was that Keller was the first commit of the Quinn/Greeley partnership (maybe he said so at the Roundtable one year?).
