Rink and Run blog: Youso seeks new college
By: Kevin Pates, Duluth News Tribune
Former News Tribune high school player of the year Jake Youso of International Falls is seeking a college after parting ways with Minnesota, according to beat writer Roman Augustoviz of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Youso, 20, a 6-foot-1 and 190-pound forward, made a commitment to the Gophers in the fall of 2008, but Minnesota was not ready to have him on the roster for 2010-11. He had played two seasons in the U.S. Hockey League, including 2009-10 with Owatonna (Minn.) with 23 goals and 26 assists for 49 points in 62 games as the team's second-leading scorer.
As an International Falls senior, he had 33 goals and 36 assists for 69 points as the 2008 News Tribune player of the year.
