With the National Letter of Intent Fall Signing Period coming up soon – Nov. 14-21 – we’ll have a college-by-college breakdown of senior commitments from the nation’s No. 1 hotbed for lacrosse, the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tristate region.

NLIs must be attached to athletic scholarships. Nevertheless, we will include all Division I- and Division II-bound seniors in the breakdown, including those bound for conferences such as the Ivy League, Patriot League and military academies.

As part of the package, we’ll also check in with the player who started the trend in high school sophomores verbally committing – Syosset (NY) goaltender Ryan Feit. He’s a now a senior. Feit verballed to Hopkins in October, 2010 — a commitment first reported at LaxLessons.com. Who knew then it would start such a trend? Currently, 15 tristate sophomores have made verbal commitments.

Below is a list of senior college commitments, sorted by high school.

If you know of a senior who has committed that is not included, please email us at info@laxlessons.com.
