Is there any chance Gage Ausmus, the defenseman from the USA NTDP, ends up at Michigan after decommitting from Denver? With the loss of Trouba, Merrill and Moffie and the additions of Downing and De Jong, there still seems to be a need. I do not know if there are any scholarships left, however, even with Bryson Cianfrone deferring.
Is there mutual interest in Ausmus? I know Ausmus is from MN and understand that the Gophers and MN-Duluth have interest.
