Over The Boards Dec. 2014 Uncommitted 200: 
68. '97 F Kole Sherwood – Ohio Blue Jackets U18 Height: 6’0, Weight: 185, Right Shot
Tier 1 U18, Philadelphia, October 2014: Big right wing, good skater for his size, works well with Carson Meyer (Dartmouth). An opportunistic forward who can set up shop in the high slot ready to unleash a shot and does a great job anticipating the play in the neutral zone, using a good reach in tandem with his feet to clog up open ice and intercept passes. Gets to soft spots and makes timely, incisive cuts towards the goal from the outside. Creates time and space by drawing defenders in before throwing pucks into smart areas. Carries the puck with confidence and dictates the tempo in possession.
