Many people thought that recent success, as well as a beautiful new arena would really help bolster Miami's recruiting, and that would seem to be true.
According to Chris Heisenberg, Miami got a commitment from Team Illinois defenseman Steve Spinell. Spinell is a late '90 birthdate that is playing with TI's Midget Major team this season. The earliest he would join the Redhawks would be 2009.
He's a 6' 190 lbs. defenseman that is also an excellent skater. I would assume that he will play in the USHL next season. As of earlier this fall, Spinell had also drawn interest from Wisconsin and Notre Dame.
