2015 Recruits

Here's the latest from LaxPower on the Pards' 2015 lax recruits.  The list looks as if it's filling out quite nicely.



Still something of a dearth in the defense and goalie positions, though.  Just one goalie and two long poles.  Two FOGOs though - which is nice (if they're any good).

Here's a highlight video on the Goalie from New Trier H.S.:

Here's a video on the FOGO/Middie from Summit H.S.  Doesn't showcase his faceoff skills, though (Summit's regular, go-to faceoff guy, Brian Hadley - who is awesome - appears to be headed for Wagner):

Here are the videos from the other FOGO/Middie recruit, from Port Washington, Lawn Guyland:

EDIT - this is a duplicate of the post that I put in the Recruiting Thread.  It's best, perhaps, to put any replies in the Recruiting Thread.

So is Drexel and it is a University in the city. That is an attraction for many young people today. Only 5 % of the high school population according to stats I have read want to go to a small liberal arts undergraduate college. In my opinion our constant reinforcement of that icon hurts our recruiting. I would rather see us selling ourselves as the "Patriot League middle ground," not too large and not too small. We should expand the school to give graduate degrees in some majors!! (business, education, engineering??)

I have been advocating that Colgate do the same thing and reach a wider audience.  However last night on tv Harvard prof Lawrence Katz advocated liberal arts as the the best path to have the adapabiltiy to solve the complicated problems we now face in our society.

The amazing thing to me is this - If a kid visits the Lafayette campus, he/she immediately sees that it's not a typical "small liberal arts college."  It has the look and feel of a research university.  It also "looks and feels" dead serious as well - not like some sort of overgrown playground.

I participated in a function not long ago at Lafayette at which there were current students from a number of name-brand eastern universities (Columbia, Penn State, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, etc.).  I got to speaking with a trio of students from the University of Pennsylvania.  They each were "amazed" by the size and breadth of the Lafayette Campus.  They said it was "huge," "striking" and "beautiful."  One said it "looks like a major university."  Another said, "I'd heard of this place but I had no idea what to expect.  This place is awesome.  Where did all this come from?"  Another said, "how many students are here?"  I answered.  "You've got to be kidding," he replied.  "With all this?"

The point is this - Lafayette has incredible, major-league resources which it devotes to a select group of students.  I know the college keeps trying to underscore this in its recruiting efforts, but you really have to go there see it for yourself to believe it.

New Trier goalie looks good in the film.

Indeed.  And that video is from the summer of 2012 - he's just a wee lad.


UPDATE - Jonathan Anastos, 5-9, 175 lbs., left handed (which is awesome for a Goalie), Team Captain, All-Conference First Team.  Plus, Jake Reed's Nike Blue Chip Recap, from Inside Lacrosse:
    Jonathan Anastos (New Trier '15, Ill.) looked good in the first two games on Saturday, demonstrating quick reflexes and a strong technique. The lefty was also awesome out of the goal.
Andy

Orazetti ends up with Syracuse.

Too bad he didn't have the grades to get into Lafayette...We sure could have used him...I know Syracuse is a great lax program but IMO Lafayette a better academic school
