|Jonah Copre with the Chicago Mission|
Quinnipiac headed back to one of the elite programs in the Midwest to pick up its most recent commit. 2003 born defensemen Jonah Copre of the Chicago Mission U-15 team verbally committed to the Bobcats on Monday. He is the second '03 born Mission player to commit to Quinnipiac following to prior commitment of Jack Silich back in December of 2017. Its another great indication that the Quinnipiac staff will go recruit prospects this young in the Midwest where teams such as Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin tend to dominate.
I’m proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey and further my education at Quinnipiac University. I’d like to thank my family, coaches and trainers, the Chicago Mission hockey club, and teammates for helping me get to this point. #GoBobcats
