...And Then There Were Five
USHR is reporting that Riley Nash has narrowed his college choices to five. Riley (6' 1", 175) is currently playing for Salmon Arm in the BCHL and is considered, along with Michael Biega (Salisbury Prep), Brad Malone (Sioux Falls, USHL), and Brett Bruneteau (Omaha, USHL) to be one of the top uncommitted players in North America. U.S. Hockey Report goes on to say that Riley "has size, skating ability, and remarkable quickness for his size. What sets him apart is his playmaking ability -- he can really distribute the puck." In his first 7 games this year, Riley has done nothing to dispel that assessment scoring 6 goals and assisting on 6 others. Riley, who is the brother of Brendon Nash, is a 1989er and could enter college next fall or spend another year in the BCHL. Riley's finalists are the Big Red, Denver, Michigan, New Hampshire, and North Dakota.
