The Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League announced today that 17-year-old forward Tyler Swystun has accepted a scholarship to the University of Michigan.
Swystun, a native of Cochrane, AB, is accelerating his high school course work, much like fellow incoming Wolverine freshman Billy Sauer is doing, to be eligible this fall. It is still to be determined, though, if he will indeed report to Ann Arbor this fall or in 2006.
New Hampshire, North Dakota, Wisconsin and defending national champion Denver were reportedly the other schools Swystun was considering.
