It’s been a recruiting-heavy week, what with the early signing period coming to an end. I’ll try to focus on other news for now, but some recruiting links are bound to sneak their way in. As always, if you have something you’d like me to share, e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @GreatLaxState. On with the show.
The Wolverines grace the cover of this month’s Inside Lacrosse magazine, and there’s also some good web content, including a podcast with IL editor Terry Foy and Michigan headman John Paul. More photos at the second link, as well.
Speaking of magazine covers, John Paul – named person of the year – will be on December’s Lacrosse Magazine.
Michigan State is the subject of an MCLA Fan fall ball report:
What are your program’s top 3 goals for the upcoming 2012 season?
1. Unforced errors will be less than 10 per game.
2. Win the CCLA Championship
3. Compete for the National Championship
Dwayne Hicks is the unquestioned top MCLA D-1 club coach in the state now that Michigan is off to the NCAA ranks. It will be interesting to see how the Spartans react to being the hunted.
Davenport attack Jordan Richtsmeier (Forest Hills Central what up) and Grand Valley attack are candidates for the Lacrosse Magazine’s pre-season MCLA D-2 player of the year. Dumsa is currently running away with the vote.
More Signing Day photos. Evan Glaser signing with the Wolverines pictured at right. Thanks to Evan for sending along the photo. Michigan commits Kyle Jackson (in grey) and Cooper Charlton (your guess is as good as mine UPDATE: second from the left in the top row) are pictured in The Hill School’s signing photo.
On the women’s side, Holt’s Jenna Payne committed to Detroit Mercy.
Michigan’s 2012 recruiting class is one of Inside Lacrosse’s “best of the rest” list.
Inside Lacrosse has named Michigan-bound attackman Austin Shanks – currently in prep school in New Hampshire – its No. 16 Canadian in the 2013 class. Future teammate Kyle Jackson is IL’s No. 2 Canadian in 2012.
