If you’ve been following along on our Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section, you know Syracuse University has been busy gathering verbals of late.

One noteworthy pickup came from a standout who plays close to the Carrier Dome.

He’s Class of 2016 midfielder Devon Sullivan of Corning-Painted Post HS.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Sullivan, a righty who plays travel for SweetLax, combines size and strength with strong skills. He is also a football standout for Corning.

recruiting_updateNow, here’s a Q&A with Devon on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
I was most interested in finding a school that offered an excellent engineering program as well as a high level and competitive lacrosse program.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I visited both Fairfield University and Towson this past summer. I also considered Delaware and Hartford as well.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I believe my greatest strength is my athleticism, as well as my defensive skills.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
I have been working hard in the off-season to improve my stick skills.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I was introduced to lacrosse at a very young age by my brothers who both played when they were younger.  I currently play for the varsity football team and also played varsity basketball last year.

Any final thoughts?
I am very grateful for the opportunity to take my skills to the next level and I will work hard to earn playing time.  I would like to thank my high school coach, Chris Hogue, as well as my SweetLax coach, Kevin Martin for helping me to become a better lacrosse player and athlete.
