If looking at Suffolk, I would go with a top academic school over lacrosse. Smithtown, Cold Spring Harbor, Northport, Harborfields, Half Hollow Hills, Islip, Connetquote, Sayville, Mt Sinai, and many others are good choices. Pick the school based on academics, and use Lax as a tie breaker. I picked a school based off of academics, and I'm very happy with how both my kids ended up in college. My son is playing in college and my daughter didn't play lax.

Curious as to why they are combining schools?

Demographics are changing, and Lacrosse and football rosters are way down. West had 3 8th graders starting last year. I'm sure COVID had something to do with it, but Hills went from having 2 or 3 teams in the youth program to 1.

I would think most of the better lacrosse schools have strong academics as well.

I guess we will have to expand our home search to include Mt. Sinai, SWR, The Tri-Villages and Centerport to be amongst the lax elite. (Sorry WI and Smithtown runner up will not do for my brood).

Where’s he getting Mt Sinai from?? Must be from Manhasset. Lol. If you were from Suffolk, you would know that MS has always been an average team at best, prior to JS. Will be there in short order once JS heads upstate. Prob sooner actually. They lost a ton of top players to graduation. Doubt JS will be enough this year.

Your right, other than JS they only have a defenseman going to
Hopkins, an LSM going to cuse, a fomid going to cuse in the younger JS, one of the best 24 lefty attackmen in the class. A pretty darn good but undersized attackman that plays for the warriors, a middie going to providence… but other than JS, the cupboard is bare. Lol

All good LI teams have a minimum of three D1 commits, and real good ones have far more than that. Fact is they lost a ton to graduation, and have a lot of holes to fill with subpar players. Wouldn’t count them out, with JS, but definitely a big step down from last year. Once JS graduates, they are right back to mediocrity. Bank on it.

Honest question here.

My son has two offers on the table, but still cant decide what to do. Both schools were in his top 5 but not sure if he should commit. Does he play out the fall and spring season and see what happens or commit to one of the two offers he has?

It comes down to what he is interested in studying, and then which school is better for that subject. Don't go to school for lacrosse.

Honestly, you will not find an answer here. Only your son can decide. my 2 older kids knew the right choice when they visited their school. My Son knew the moment he met with the coach and did a tour of the school it was for him. My daughter had a similar experience. If there are doubts then maybe its not the right fit. Only he can decide and only he will know.. Use the broken leg test, if he was unable to play would he still want to attend the school.

Crazy to wait....those days are gone especially with the Covid backlog. 23's are sitting pretty. Pick one before they move on to someone else. This is a business to colleges. Don't think it's anything different. Best of luck. Sounds like your son is in a good spot.

Losers hit bids. If neither are the school he really wants and he has confidence in his abilities and grades put him squarely in the mix than why settle. Kids are young and usually have more confidence and want to attain their goals, its the parents that sell their own kid short and tell him to hit the bid so he can throw a sticker on his car. Perhaps $ is a consideration and he needs to take that offer, if so makes sense.

The dice guy seems to have the most compelling argument.
