“It went well, it was a busy schedule with school and everything but I thought the transition went really well, and the guys in Youngstown are really great,” Karow said.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more from them, they really helped me with that. You know, I am really grateful, looking forward to joining a great organization with a lot of young guys there. Just really exciting, it’s a great chance for me.”

Karow is committed to play at Boston College next season.
