Hunwick spurns Adrian, chooses Michigan

Alpena IceDiggers' goalie Shawn Hunwick has committed to play goal for the Michigan Wolverines this upcoming season.

The Sterling Heights native will carry the Hunwick name for another four years at the university. Shawn's older brother, Matt, just finished his senior season as Michigan's captain.

Hunwick, 20, spent this season in Alpena compiling a record of 17-9-2 with one shutout in 31 games played.

"Shawn deserves the chance to play at the D-I level," Alpena head coach Kenny Miller said. "He is a hard-working kid that will compete everyday in practice. He is very excited about this chance and I am happy for him and his family."

Hunwick joins Todd Rudasill (Ohio State), Eric Roman (Wayne State), Drew Pierson (Army) and Chad Billins (Ferris State in '08) as members of the 2006-2007 season to commit to Division I programs.

Hunwick originally committed to D-III Adrian before deciding on Michigan.
