Boston University’s first Class of 2015 tristate commit is in the book and it comes by way of national power St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, N.Y.
Attackman/midfielder Brendan Homire has verballed to coach Ryan Polley’s Terriers, according to Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider special coverage section.
The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Homire led all midfielders on St. Anthony’s JV team in points with 36 on 17 goals and 19 assists. He was a captain on the CHSSL champion St. A’s JV boys soccer squad.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Brendan on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
Boston University is a great school that offers both great academic and athletic opportunities. Also, (Boston University Head) Coach (Ryan) Polley and (Assistant) Coach (Drew) Kelleher are both passionate coaches who want to make BU a national championship contender.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Furman, Villanova, Fairfield, UNC, and I visited Maryland and UMass as well.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I could always work on my dodging and shooting, also to become more of a two-way middie.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
My dad (Jeff) introduced me to lacrosse at a young age and I’ve never stopped. I also played on the JV soccer team at St Anthony’s.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play for the Long Island Outlaws and I participated in the Under Armour Shootout, Baltimore Kickoff, Uplax and the Under Armour underclass tryouts.
Any final thoughts?
Obviously, my parents for always helping me with everything. My JV coaches Mike Chanenchuck and John Lynott and my freshman coach Paul Washington for making me a better player. Coach Keith Wieczorek and Coach Doug Schreiber for helping me with the recruiting process. Also my club coach Justin Arini for his continuous help with everything.
