Ryan Gropp has committed to the University of North Dakota.
The 1996-born forward from British Columbia gave a verbal commitment to UND on Thursday night, ending his heavy recruitment.
Gropp, a former first-round pick in the Western Hockey League, had several offers, but decided to make Grand Forks his future home after visiting the campus earlier this week. He will likely join the team in the fall of 2014.
“It’s a pretty exciting time,” said Gropp, whose father played college hockey at Colorado College. “I had been talking to a bunch of schools but this was only my second visit. I fell in love with the place. I was impressed by everything – the building, the coaching staff – and that was it for me."
