Sacred Heart University continues to rack in tristate verbal commitments under new coach Jon Basti.
The latest comes from a high school program that continually racks up verbal commitments of its own.
We’re talking about St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, N.Y., where 2015 attackman/midfielder Connor O’Reilly has decided on Sacred Heart, as first reported by Joe Lombardi on Oct. 19 on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound O’Reilly is a righty who is equally effective as a shooter and dodger.
What were the main factors in your decision?
I loved Sacred Heart right when I stepped on the campus. It’s a great fit for me academically and lacrosse wise.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was considering Lehigh, BU and High Point. I visited Lehigh, BU, Deleware, High Point and Towson.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
The area of my game I feel I need to improve on is my defense .
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
My dad introduced me to lacrosse in third grade. I played football and basketball and still play basketball today.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I currently play on Team 91.
Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my parents, my coaches, and George Breres and Brian Spallina from Team 91.
