I wish that I could give you more insight. What I would like to know is how the transfer portal factors into filling out their need, i.e. do they put more weight on a portal kid to fill a spot as opposed to an incoming freshman. Seems like it would be a lot easier to get a transfer into a school, assuming that they meet the academic requirements.[/quote]

Some schools are less likely to take transfers due to cultural fit, but I think most have a hard time passing up on the opportunity to bring in talent. Even the #1 recruit in high school hasn't proven themselves on the field.

But remember its not just transfers taking those spots. Every kid was granted an extra year in 2020. Schools will have less kids leaving which I think will equate to bringing less in. My guess, spots will become more scarce for current recruiting classes.

I have a question related to scouting. Does anyone know if there were D1 scouts at the NXT Summer Invitational in Philly and an event like Summer Slam for the 2023's this year. I know they were at Pinnacle, NLF, Naptown and NAL, just curious about the other events.

I was at NXT Summer Invitational with a B level 2023 program. There were D1 coaches there - I saw Michigan and Harvard amongst others. Most of the coaches appeared to be watching the 2022 games . . . and I suppose some of the higher level 2023 games. Same applies to Liberty Elite Classic in DE and Baltimore Summer Kickoff.

Yes, they were at the NXT Summer invitational. Not sure what other age groups they were watching, but quite a few attended the 2023 games.

This is definitely going to impact recruiting, but as well all know, most of these kids are not playing for free, so staying for another year for a dead end sport can get pretty expensive. Probably more of a factor for D1 programs as opposed to D3, the D3 kids that seem intent on staying are mostly top players at the D3 level that try and make a run at a D1 program.

There is now Mad 2 Dog North teams/4 BBL Teams/4 Team 91 teams. As well as a ton of other clubs. New clubs seem to be openign up every day.
When will the bubble burst on these teams? I love how they claim to be having tryouts for these type of teams and clubs. Other than LE, BBL Black most of these teams are begging for players and not cutting anyone.

It's going to be a rude awakening for some of these clubs...While I think that the United merger was a good play for BBL, their other satellite teams, along with the others listed above, will have a short shelf life. If this expansion doesn't play out for BBL and their reputation is tarnished as a result, the real risk could be kids leaving the Black teams as well, just look at what the exit of a few 2023's did to that team.

You guys are overthinking the United merger. Did they keep any of the United 2026 kids?

With two national teams I don’t see them “cutting” United’s top players. The better question is what were they told about the makeup of teams? 2 equal national teams or is there still “Black” and everyone else?

The idea of 2 national teams under one club banner is nonsensical and is what is wrong with the entire club lacrosse scene. Previously you had to be good to play on a travel lacrosse club, kids were actually cut. Now anybody can be on a travel lacrosse club and the prestige comes with being on a "national" travel lacrosse club. Which club is going to be the first to put out a "World" team?

I'm not suggesting that the United merger will result in a ton of amazing talent coming out of the shore area to make a "National" team...but it was a good merger in the sense of buying into an established program with a good reputation in the area, as opposed to just creating some new BBL regional program from scratch.
