Yesterday, Miami received another commitment from a top recruit as Livonia, Mich. native, Riley Barber verbally committed to play his college hockey for the RedHawks.
Barber (5’11”, 180) who last year played for the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL as a 16-year old, netted 14 goals and 14 assists in 57 games. A ’94 birthdate, Barber becomes the third member of Team USA U-18 to commit to Miami joining defenseman Patrick Sieloff and forward Ryan Hartman. The RedHawks now arguably have commitments from two of the top three forwards on the U-18 team that will play its 2011-12 schedule in the USHL.
Here’s an excerpt from an article in the Dubuque Telegraph Herald about Barber’s decision.
