Blaine, MN — Fresh off of his first victory back as a member of the Odessa Jackalopes James Crossman verbally committed to Brown University on Thursday night.
The defenseman from Cherry Hills, Colorado was a constant force on the blue line last year for Odessa, notching seven goals along with 27 assists for 34 points last season.
Crossman returned to the Jackalopes lineup on Wednesday after a brief stint in the United States Hockey League.
This year Crossman has excelled in his first two games back notching two goals and an assist for three points so far this season.
The Brown University Brown Bears play division 1 college hockey as a part of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) against other prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Dartmouth.
Crossman’s commitment marks the third Jackalope on this year’s roster committed to play DI college hockey.
