Girls lacrosse stars are feeling a sense of commitment

Girls lacrosse stars are feeling a sense of commitment ...

New Jersey boys lacrosse stars from the first of the national Letter of Intent, on the first of Nov. 10 to date.

It seems like that's a great time to learn what the talented class of 2023 had on his mind.

Today the youth are more and more the same as the youth who have reacted with nonbinding verbal commitments to Division 1 lacrosse programs. Whenever they make up their allegiances, there are no additional liens in the organization to give the current senior and the current junior that you're not familiar with with it, so the future is very interesting.

DJ Clark of Lawrenceville, who actually hails from Ontario, Canada, was the first player representing a New Jersey school to announce his future intentions when he asked the University of Denver on Sept. 10 for his verbal address six days later.

Hunterdon Central is the first school to take the honor of the Garden State's commitment, but he has a tremendous field and score ability. In June, it helped the Central team to the Group 4 event.

The Bridgewater-Raritan midfielder Colin Kurdyla isnt facing off, yet presents the same kind of challenges as Creter for his defenders while the ball is in his stick.

The talented playmaker, who also plays football at Rutgers, took a moment out of his running duties Sept. 29 head coach Brian Brecht. Colin's brother Brady will continue his lacrosse career at Rutgers, but soon after he became the second in-state player to announce that he was in concert with the Scarlet Knights.

Among the six players who have committed to Division-1 school, high-skilled faceoffman Robert Simone, who transferred to the prep school powerhouse last summer from Don Bosco Prep. Simone was one of the divers who helped the Don Bosco Prep's non-public A title and first Tournament of Champions crown last month.

One other member of the talented Ironmen squad has issued verbal messages to Princeton by former attackman Mark Marino. At the time of the game, seton Hall Prep counts three players in this early group - though St. Joseph and Rumson have two each.

In recent weeks, a number of outstanding defensemen/longstick middies have made commitments, including Delbartons Jake Malchionni and Rumson-Fair Havens Beau Kemler to Villanova, Seton Hall Preps Brody Davis to Denver, Ridgewoods Owen Staunton to St. Josephs (Pa.), and Westfields Trey Brown to Maryland.

Brown was the son of former New York Giants quarterback Dave Brown in the mid-to-late 1980s, and then moved into Duke.

Both young boys have received their commitments towards the United States navy and military academies, Lawrenceville's Simone to West Point, and American national defenseman John McCurry of Wall and the U.S. Naval Academy. We thank you for your service to this nation.

This list is going to grow in the coming weeks and months. It will include division 2 and 3 and junior college pledges.
