WAUSAU — Adam Parsells was at a loss for words when University of Wisconsin men’s hockey coach Mike Eaves called him Thursday to offer him a scholarship.
“At first I was kind of speechless. He actually asked if I was still there (on the phone),” said Parsells, the Wausau West 6-foot-5 junior defenseman said. “I was a little bit in awe. It was quite the exciting moment for me.”
It didn’t take Parsells long to give an answer, however, and he announced his commitment Saturday night on Twitter.
