Jack Summers was previously committed to Brown.

When the Wolverines came calling, however, it was hard to say no.

The Livonia native, starting his second season with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL, announced on Oct. 5 that he has verbally committed to the University of Michigan.

“I picked the University of Michigan because it has always been my dream to play there,” Summers told MiHockey. “Being given the opportunity to play hockey at a school as prestigious as Michigan, and it being only a half hour away from where I grew up – having friends and family to support me was the most important aspect in making my choice.”

The Victory Honda alum played 21 games with the Springfield Jr. Blues in 2016-17 before earning a spot with the Storm.

Summers will be familiar with one of the Wolverines’ coaches when he ends up on campus; he played for new assistant coach Bill Muckalt when Muckalt was the head coach of the Storm last season.

“I’m excited to be a part of the traditions of Michigan hockey and ultimately win championships at the school, as well as getting a world-class education,” Summers said.
