The downside to those schools lacrosse wise is that if you aren’t #1 or #2 at your position, the player may never see the field. Your son may not get significant time until they are a Junior or Senior. The other downside is that those 2 schools and schools similar who like to advertise at how good they are, tend to over recruit. And by over recruit, I mean drastically over recruit and bring in more PG’s than other schools.

If you are looking at those schools, better ask the right questions or your kid may have a really sore behind from sitting in the bench for 4 years.

The best way to tell how badly schools like that want your son on their team is by how much FA you get. The best players are there on extremely generous FA. If the coach isn’t contacting your son frequently during the process, that’s a good indicator as well.
