Lucia went to Penticton instead of spending his senior season at Wayzata, Nelson spent his senior year at Warroad and Bjugstad accelerated HS to join Minnesota in what would have been his senior year (although in fairness he was one of the oldest in his grade).

The U had Bjugstad at 6'5", 211 last year and Florida listed him at 6'6" for their prospect camp. Eye test says he's 6'5".
