When Syosset (N.Y.) senior goaltender Ryan Feit verbally committed to Johns Hopkins in October, 2010, a decision first reported here at LaxLessons.com, it signaled the start of a trend.
One that was the talk of the lax world for months — until it was no longer unique.
But in the last month, the accelerated recruiting process has advanced one step further.
In late November, Forry Smith, an attackman at the Haverford School (Pa.), became the first freshman to verbal when rumors and speculation that trickled through social media were eventually confirmed that he had committed to Johns Hopkins.
Then, earlier this month, Jack Reilly (pictured here), a ninth-grade defender from nearby Conestoga (Pa.), committed to Virginia.
Will freshman commitments soon spread beyond the Keystone State?
Meanwhile, Smith’s commitment and its potential ramifications were explored in a story at LaxMagazine.com that was published on Monday, Dec. 10.
