The star attackman from Long Island’s Northport High School had been planning on heading south to play at the Division I level. Now, he’s opted for the Midwest.
Rocco Sutherland, one of the nation’s top 2015 players, has verballed to Michigan after decommitting from Maryland, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section earlier this week.
“I started thinking about decommitting over the summer and wanted to explore other options,” Sutherland said. “Although Maryland is great university, I just felt more at home at Michigan.”
Sutherland also considered Cornell after decommitting from Maryland.
He visited Michigan this past weekend.
“It was a great experience,” he said. “I enjoyed the football game (against Utah) and school atmosphere. The city of Ann Arbor is a beautiful place and I can’t wait to spend my next four years there.”
Sutherland has the ability to make an immediate impact for the Wolverines. He is a skilled and athletic offensive force who can break down a defense with a variety of dodges and shooting angles.
