The 2012 high school season will be one for the books by late in the day on Saturday.
But as the games end, a new wave of recruiting commitments will be starting.
The wave was started this past weekend. As we first told you on Twitter, one of the tristate region’s top juniors has made his college choice.
“The main factor in my decision was finding a school that had a perfect balance of academics and athletics,” Warble said. “I wanted to compete at the highest level while also receiving a world-class education.”
Warble also visited Amherst, Middlebury, Colgate, Yale, Dartmouth and Washington & Lee.
Interest in Warble intensified this season. He’s in the midst of a breakthrough campaign with a team-leading 67 goals scored. He also leads Bronxville in ground balls.
“I consider myself an uptempo player who loves to push in transition and is comfortable in the open field where I can utilize my speed and agility,” he said. “Ground balls are important to me because they are a hustle stat and really bring out the grittiness of a player.
“This year I really improved on shooting and finishing. I made it my goal to improve my shot speed and accuracy last offseason. I guess my hard work paid off because my productivity increased significantly.”
It’s helped the Broncos earn a return trip to the state semifinals, where they will play Shoreham-Wading River on Wednesday, June 6 at 3:30 p.m. at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium.
“Undoubtably, my high school head coach, Tim Horgan, has had a huge impact on my lacrosse career,” Warble said. “He pushed me hard last year to improve all areas of my play. He helped me transition from being a role player to a leader.
“Last year, I had two great leaders, Jack Near and Charlie McCormack, to look up to and mentor me. Playing on the same line as them last year was a great opportunity to experience playing the game at a high level.”
