Recruiting: Jacob Semik commits to Arizona State


By @MichaelCaples –

The Sun Devils have snagged another Michigan native.

Jacob Semik is on his way to Arizona State.

The Canton native has announced his commitment to college hockey’s youngest D1 program, joining Logan Jenuwine as recent pledges to ASU.

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a special tradition they have created in Tempe,” Semik said via his Dubuque Fighting Saints’ team press release. “I couldn’t be more excited about the direction of the program as a whole.”

Semik, 19, is wearing the ‘C’ for the Fighting Saints this season, his third with the USHL club. Previously a University of Michigan commit, he has 19 points in 55 games this season.

“We are happy for Jacob that he has found a fit with the Sun Devils,” said head coach Oliver David. “He has an extraordinary hockey mind and loves the game unconditionally. He’ll be joining Josh Maniscalco – his former D-partner – and joining a coaching staff that is passionate about continuing to build the best thing going in college hockey.”
