Just over two years ago, in October 2010, Syosset goaltender Ryan Feit became the first sophomore to verbally commit to a collegiate lacrosse program when he announced his intentions to attend Johns Hopkins. Feit, now a senior, made his commitment official during Fall Signing Week Nov. 14-21 by putting pen to paper on a National Letter of Intent.
Now, a high school freshman has verbally committed, and once again, his destination is Johns Hopkins.
The player, Forry Smith, lives in the Philadelphia region, beyond the borders of the nation’s No. 1 hotbed for lacrosse, the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tristate region. So his verbal commitment, made early last week, took a few days before news of it finally trickled out through social media.
Smith is a 6-foot-2, 175-pound attackman who attends national power Haverford School, which is located 10 miles west pf Philly. He is an athletic player with exceptional skills and size, especially given his age.
