When Sachem North (NY) coach Jason Mauro says he expects big things from Brant Junge, he means that literally.

Junge, after all, is 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds.

“Brant is a good kid who really worked hard this spring,” Mauro said. “We are expecting big things from Brant this summer into next year. He has a high ceiling and we hope that he will reach his potential.”

Junge will look to do just that at the collegiate level. He’s committed to Marywood University in Scranton, Pa. Junge will join his twin brother, Ian, in the collegiate ranks. Ian Junge, who is also 6-foot-4, is a defenseman who committed to UMBC.

Brant Junge is a righty with good shooting ability to go with his size.

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

What were the main factors in you’re decision?
Some of the factors in my decisions were first off the location. I didn’t want to be very far away from home. Another was that I really liked the campus on my visit to the school, the size of the school, their facilities and the area around Marywood I really like.

What are your strengths as a player how would you describe your style of play?
I would say my strengths are my shooting and my size. I use my size to my advantage, I like to dodge strong. My coach likes me to post up defenders and use my body to beat the defense.

What area of your game do you need work on?
I need to work on my left hand, in order to be successful with my game I need to be able to use both of my hands. Also I need to work on my speed and agility I always need to be faster to help me beat my defenders.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
My dad introduced me to lacrosse he always wanted me and my brothers to play. I started playing in 6th grade and have loved playing ever since. I also played football, and baseball. I also am currently apart of my schools basketball team.

What travel team do you play for and what showcases did you participate in?
I play for my schools travel team and I went to a couple of showcases last summer. I attended the Long Island uprising at Stony Brook, and went directly to Marywood where they had their electric city show case.

Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my mom for always pushing me to be my best on and off the field. I want to thank my dad for the countless hours he has spent on the fields with me working on my skills, and my brothers for always being supportive and helpful for me. I also want to thank my coaches for all their help with building my fundamentals and never letting me give up.
