Badgers men’s hockey: Wisconsin gets commitment from Wausau center Josh Bohlin

October 12, 2017 GMT

The commitments from Wisconsin recruits are rolling in for the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team.

Wausau center Josh Bohlin wrote on Twitter Thursday morning that he has committed to the Badgers.

Proud to announce my commitment to play hockey at the University of Wisconsin! Thanks to everyone who’s helped me along the way! #OnWisconsin — Josh Bohlin (@Josh_Bohlin) October 12, 2017

That came a little more than 12 hours after West Salem forward Jack Gorniak announced his decision to join the Badgers’ long list of committed recruits.

Of 32 players known to have given Badgers coaches a nonbinding oral commitment to join the team in future seasons, eight are from Wisconsin.

Bohlin, 17, is in his first season with the Cedar Rapids Roughriders of the United States Hockey League after a decorated junior year at Wausau West High School.

In helping the Warriors to the state tournament — where they eliminated Gorniak and West Salem/Bangor in the quarterfinals — Bohlin had 30 goals and 53 points in 29 games.

Listed at 6-foot and 183 pounds, the right-handed forward was a first-team all-state pick by the Wisconsin Hockey Coaches Association last season.

At the 2017 USA Hockey Boys Select 17 Player Development Camp in June, Bohlin had two goals and an assist in five games.
