Tomorrow marks the official start of winter, which means that we’re getting closer and closer to the start of another lacrosse season.

In the meantime, the commitments just keep on coming, gang.

If you checked our “Updated recruiting review and commitment rundown” today, you learned of the first commit of New Fairfield’s Class of 2011.

Ryan Mallon, an attack/midfielder and returning starter, has selected Siena.

We also added the commitment of Chaminade senior attackman Chris Schoenhut, who has selected defending Division III national champion Tufts.

Schoenhut is the latest standout from the Long Island Sting to land with a highly regarded college program.

Here’s a Q & A with Chris on his commitment:

What were the main factors in your decision to attend Tufts?
Great academics, great lacrosse program, and I love Boston.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Notre Dame, Hamilton, Bates, Trinity, and some smaller Ivies.

What adjustments do you think you will need to make to play at the next level?
Speed, vision and gaining some muscle.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I think I am very good off-ball, I think I have good vision and pass well, I really enjoy being physical on my rides.

What players have you looked up to as you have moved up through the varsity ranks?
Many of my Chaminade teammates, in all positions.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
When I was young, my coach, Scott Lohan, always encouraged his players to dream about playing at the college level.
