As we told you first thing this morning on Twitter.com/joe_lombardi, Kyle Mathie became the latest member of the Bulls’ Class of 2014 to make a commitment.
“The main factors in my decision was the coaching staff, educational opportunities and support services,” said Mathie, who also considered Penn State, Lehigh and Cornel, and also visited UMass and Delaware.
Mathie, a lefty, has good size (at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds), athleticism and stick skills.
“My strengths are my speed and footwork as well as being an offensive threat,” he said.
Mathie was moved from midfield to defense this past February, prior to the start of his sophomore season running with the Bulls.
“My coaches at Smithtown West – Moltisanti, Latoushe, Rotella and Snyder – have really worked with me to get me where I am now,” Mathie said.
