Not seeing a lot of 2022 commits. I did see FLG post some late summer commits. I thought it would be more active. You all think with 5 grades now playing college, this is impacting recruiting or a lot was done early on?

I think the pandemic has messed with recruiting for sure. I also think great lacrosse is being played in other parts of the country so LI numbers aren't the only part of the story...

All the other coaches were successful this year and did not play favorites. All finished better than 500 so they are staying

This is disgraceful for LI, but just like to top 50 Nassau/Suffolk, it's all political.

Too many S's.One would have sufficed.

Shoreham Wading River and Mount Sinai took down LI UA

New coach will have an entirely new staff

Its sad because there are many 2022's that are more deserving than some 2023's especially since a lot of 2022's are still trying to get recruited. Im not saying they aren't good players but I believe some 2022's could have done just a good of a job or even better. But since this LI so lets just hijack the event and make sure there classmates are there too. 50% of team is MS and Shoreham.

It is definitely true that other parts of the country have cut into the number of commits from Long Island. It would be interesting to see how many total kids from Long Island compared to nationally committed for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. If we had those numbers it would give us a better understanding if there are less recruits from Long Island or it just seems like less because the recruiting process has slowed down since early commitItting ended.

Soccer has 3 or 4 in past 10 years. Coaches daughters were on the teams but the difference is he didn't sacrifice a season for his daughter and her friends. That why he is still the coach

Every day college teams are posting one or two kids deciding to play another year. It’s common sense that it is effecting the younger possible recruits. It’s changed the landscape. Kids who would be possibly going big DI or Ivy are now going NESCACS and it’s trickling down. The colleges are benefiting and HS kids are getting screwed. Lacrosse has always been the Wild Wild West. Why would that change now?

So sad. The HS kids keep getting screwed. Only thing you’re wrong about is Ivies. Most of them don’t allow a 5th year

Well, that totally backfired! Embarrassing for LI Lacrosse. Also, not fair to the deserving 22’ players who needed exposure in such a tough year with a lost year last year! SELFISH

Quite a few high academic schools cut their recruiting class for HS 2022s by 30% So the squeeze is real.

Better watch out. When this was mentioned about the 2021 class, who lost their most important junior year, it was because the kids stunk and should have reclassified. Bunch of knuckleheads on here.

Don’t know the data, but with 5 grades now prevalent on the college level, there is likely less spots. A 5th year 23 year old is much more of value it seems than an 18 year old unproven. These coaches are under pressure to run a successful program and I would focus on grad transfers. I think the NCAA should have granted the extra year this year to those seniors, but ended it there.
