Sixteen schools are represented on the full roster, headlined by freshmen Quinn Hughes (Michigan) and Brady Tkachuk (Boston University).

Michigan leads all schools with six representatives between Hughes and five commits. Minnesota and Wisconsin have four recruits each on the roster, followed by Boston University, Harvard, Miami, Notre Dame and Providence with three representatives each.
