If you checked our “Updated recruiting review and commitment rundown” earlier this evening, you learned that Yorktown rising senior Conor Gately, the state semifinalist Huskers’ leading scorer this past season, has made his college choice.
The 5-foot-10 attackman has given a verbal commitment to accept a scholarship offer from the newly formed Marquette program that will be competing in the Big East Conference.
Gately just wrapped up a strong junior season in which he had Gately had three goals and one assist in the Huskers’ 10-8 state semifinal loss to Garden City. Though known as a feeding attackman, Gately’s ability to finish in that game — against one of the nation’s premier defenses — attracted the attention of several major Division I programs.
The 5-foot-11, 165-pound Gately finished the season with 22 goals and 58 assists for 80 points.
Marquette’s head coach is former Hofstra assistant Joe Amplo.
The Golden Eagles announced on Dec. 18, 2010 that they will be launching D-I programs for both men’s and women’s lacrosse beginning with the 2012 season.
