We told you earlier this week that the St. Anthony Friars lead the region in seniors who have committed to collegiate programs with 14.

Twelve of them are bound for Division I programs, including Brendon Hurley, who has committed to join new coach Scott Nelson’s program at Binghamton.

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound Hurley, a right-handed midfielder, has good stick skills, quickness and is an adept dodger.

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

What were the main factors in your decision to attend Binghamton?
I wanted to choose a school that has great academics and also competes at the Division I level. Binghamton is the No. 1 SUNY school for academics and also plays in the America East Conference against other strong Division I programs.

When I met with Coach Nelson, he said he believed that he can take the program to new heights and I definitely agree. Coach Nelson is passionate about lacrosse and he’s also a great guy. When I had the chance to walk around campus, I could picture myself spending my time in college there. Binghamton was the right fit for me.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Penn, St. John’s, Providence, Fairfield, Towson and Drexel.

St. Anthony’s once again leads the area in college committed and D-I committed players. Is this a special source of pride for the program?
I think everyone that plays or has played at St. Anthony’s takes pride in the program. Many college players have came out of St. Anthony’s, so it’s definitely special to say that you are a part of the program and that you’ve been able to be around so many other talented players.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My strengths are my quickness, shot on the run, and field vision. My style of play is to hustle on both sides of the field, dodge hard on offense, and be a team player.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
I wanted to play college lacrosse since I was young. I realized that I actually could play college lacrosse when I came to St. Anthony’s and started getting interest from some good programs early on.
