Lacrosse proudly carries the tagline of being the fastest game on two feet.

Tyler Albrecht’s game is a perfect example of why that statement is true.

The midfielder from Millbrook School in New York’s Hudson Valley plays the game fast in almost every way.

Fast can describe his foot speed as well as his shot.

Couple that with his size (6-foot-2, 205 pounds), and it’s easy to see why he was a target recruit for many of the nation’s top college programs.

The Canadian native has committed to Cornell.

Here’s a Q&A with Tyler on his choice:

What were the main factors in your decision to attend Cornell?
Because of its academic reputation, the home-like feeling, and its proximity. Cornell is an Ivy League school, and I chose to go there so that i may prosper from that and attain a significant job when i graduate.

Also, the coaches and players were more then welcoming which created a homey warm feeling. Lastly, it is close to home therefore allowing me to travel back and forth easily, and my parents can watch as many games as they want.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Villanova, Loyola, Denver, UMass, North Carolina and Brown.

What adjustments do you think you will need to make to play at the next level?
Working heavily on my off hand.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My speed, shot  and ability to see the field. I need to work on my wrong hand more than anything. My style of play is a fast-paced, fast-breaking game, and when given an opportunity to shoot I most likely will take it.

Millbrook School has four players bound for D-I schools. Is that a source of pride heading into next season?
The fact that Millbrook has four D-I commits definitely adds pride and confidence to this upcoming season.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
I realized that I had potential to play at the college level when Edge Lacrosse chose me to play for their team. We traveled down to America and played a couple of teams, getting more competitive each year. My sophomore year, I had a lot of schools start to email me, and that is when I realized the potential I had.
