Yale gets commitment from a D

Billy Sweezey, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound defenseman, announced via Twitter than he plans to attend Yale. He is a junior at Noble and Greenough High in Dedham, Mass. and was at Ingalls Rink for Saturday's win over Colgate.

Here's what an story on Central Scouting prospects said about Sweezey last month:

3. Billy Sweezey, Nobles & Greenough (HIGH-MA): Gregory acknowledged that there's a lot to like about the 6-foot, 190-pound junior defenceman. According to the veteran scout, Sweezey just now is beginning to realize how dominant a player he can be. Sweezey has been compared by some to Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik. "He's a big defenceman starting to use his size well and can make a pro pass," (Central Scouting's Dave) Gregory said. "He's beginning to understand that he can and should dominate games at the high school level. His mobility is good and he loves to hit. If he hit all the time and laid kids out he'd really get scouts excited about him even more because he's a really thick and strong kid."
