It’s the busiest time of year for major D-I commitments in the nation’s No. 1 hotspot for lacrosse, the NY/NJ/CT tristate region. Get caught up right here, right now.
If you’ve been following along on our Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section, you know there has been a big surge in Class of 2015 Division II and Division III commitments the last few days.
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Ochs, a lefty, is a strong stopper with good field awareness who positions himself well in the cage. He was recruited by several Division I programs as well. You can watch his highlight reel here.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Bryan on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
From the first time I met coach (John) Jez and saw the facilities I knew that Post is where I wanted to go.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I visited Drexel, Loyola, Binghamton and St Joseph’s.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I feel I am a strong ball stopper and good positional keeper.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I would like to work on my athleticism.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
My dad (Peter Ochs) played when he was younger so I was never allowed to play baseball.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play for Jim Konen on the South Shore Ballers, I attend Jake Reed as a rising sophomore and was an all-star at Maverik Showtime as a rising junior.
This summer I played at Uplax, LI Lax Fest, NHSLS, Hofstra, Rutgers, Pridefest and NYLA.
Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my mom and dad for always being there for me, my youth coaches Brian O’Keefe, Jim Esposito, Jim Konen, Jeff Berson as well as my dad and also my HS coaches John Calabria, Brett Waxer, Mike Murtha, Joe Taglia and Tom Finnagan for always making lacrosse fun.
