Adam Conquest has had a busy last few months.
He won a state title in March. He was drafted by the Des Moines Buccaneers in the USHL Draft in April.
Now, in June, he’s committed to a NCAA Division 1 college hockey program.
Conquest tweeted on Father’s Day that he has given a verbal commitment to Bowling Green.
“I picked BGSU because I see it as an up-and-coming hockey program that has high potential in the future,” Conquest told MiHockey Sunday evening, “and with that means an opportunity for me to be a player that can help bring more success to the program.”
The Brighton High School product – he posted 38 points in 29 games as the Bulldogs claimed the D1 state title – said he sees similarities to his current team in BGSU.
“The coaching staff is just like Brighton’s and that’s what I like, a team and player-to-player relationship that grows past college,” Conquest said. “I’m very excited for the the capability to be a Falcon and knowing the work and opportunity that is now presented to me. I’m excited for the atmosphere each and every game and hoping to bring success along with that.”
The 2000 birth-year player was a fifth-round pick of the Bucs in this year’s USHL Draft.
Conquest is the second Brighton player to commit to a NCAA D1 program this year, joining Mr. Hockey winner Jake Crespi on the list.
