Quinn Preston said he grew up watching college hockey, but never thought he’d have a chance to play at the D1 level someday.
Today, he announced his commitment to a Big Ten hockey program.
Preston will be joining the Ohio State Buckeyes when he concludes his junior hockey career.
“I chose OSU because it’s an amazing place all the way through,” Preston told MiHockey shortly after posting his commitment on Twitter. “Only 3 hours from home, and I felt right at home when I visited.”
Preston, a Trenton native, played three years of high school hockey for the Trojans before moving onto the junior ranks. In 2015-16, he skated with the Topeka RoadRunners of the NAHL, registering 34 points in 59 games.
This season, he has been thriving at an even higher level, posting 31 points thus far with the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL.
“I watched college hockey when I was a kid but never thought I could make it here, so it’s a pretty surreal feeling to get the opportunity to play college hockey.”
