Holy Trinity (N.Y.) is quickly becoming a breeding ground for future Buckeyes.

Two-way midfielder Brian Lang has become the second Holy Trinity sophomore to commit to Ohio State, joining attackman Michael Laviano.

“Michael is a very close friend of mine, and has been my best friend for a few years,” Lang said. “When he committed, I knew I also wanted to play at the same college as him.”

Lang is a 6-foot, 180-pound dodging righty with good athleticism and quickness.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Brian on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
I wanted to choose a school that was both strong academically and athletically.  Ohio State has tons of academic support, and between athletics and the facilities and the campus, as soon as i stepped foot on campus I knew I wanted to be part of the Buckeye tradition.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I strongly considered North Carolina and Maryland and visited both.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My athleticism, strength, quickness, and always wanting to win. I am very physical, and I have the ability to win play offense and defense and win faceoffs.

How big a factor was the fact that Holy Trinity teammate Michael Laviano has committed to Ohio State in your decision and are you guys looking forward to being teammates for seven more years?
It was a very big factor for me. Michael is a very close friend of mine, and has been my best friend for a few years. When he committed, I knew I also wanted to play at the same college as him. We work very well together and have a good connection on and off the field.  We are both definitely looking forward to playing together for the next seven years.

Who have been some of the biggest influences on you during your development as a player?
My biggest influences as developing as a player are definitely my parents for always being there for me and motivating me.  My varsity coach also played a big role in that, starting me as a freshman on varsity definitely made me a better player. Also, Coach Winkoff for coaching me on FLG has played a huge role in developing me into a better player.

What travel team did you play on and what were some of the big showcase events you participated in this past summer?
This summer I played for, For the Love of the Game (FLG). The biggest events I attended this summer were Crabfeast, U15 National Championship, FLG in 3D, Maverick  Showtime, and Jake Reed’s Nike Bluechip.
