Granted it’s not a big money sport. But lacrosse 397 NCAA teams exist…give or take. And landing a D1 roster has become more competitive than ever. Kids from all over the country are now going to high D1 schools. Just look at 2023. 2 of the top 35 are from Long Island. And the S2S OGs are a fantastic team and not one player in the top 50. The game is growing and more and more people care. Just surprised that the number of D1 schools hasn’t increased for mens lax. Like a Stanford, Oregon, FLA or BC.
care less about the "rankings". How many of the "unranked" kids on 91, S2S, express, igloo are going D1? Does it matter they weren't ranked?
D2 and D3 likely. It takes a while, after several showcases and prospect days to come to that realization, but most get there eventually.
