Kero stays up north, signs with MTU

Marquette Rangers
forward Tanner Kero has become the second player from this year's squad to make a Division I college commitment, agreeing to play for the Michigan Tech Huskies of the WCHA.

Kero, a Hancock native, is in his first year of junior hockey and has made the most of the early part of the season. He currently leads the Rangers in goal production with 12 on the year to go with five assists for 17 points, placing him fifth in overall scoring for the club.

Rangers head coach Kenny Miller said the organization couldn’t be happier to see Kero make the commitment to play in Houghton.

“Tanner is a very skilled player that deserves the chance to play at the Division I level,” Miller said. “He works hard every day and he has been rightly rewarded for that effort. Not only is Michigan Tech getting a high-end player, they are getting a great student and an even better young man. We’re all very happy for him and his family.”

Kero joins teammate Garrett Ladd (Bemidji State) as players from this year’s Rangers squad to make commitments to play college hockey. Kero also joins Aaron Pietila (2007-09) as players from the Rangers to commit to MTU.
