Top 2022 Uncommitted Players
Breyden Harrison, midfield, Middle Creek (N.C.)
There can’t be many better uncommitted midfielders in the class than Harrison. A veritable do-it-all threat coming off a 27-point, 53-ground ball season in just 12 games as a third-team all-state pick, his motor never stops and he makes plays all over the field. With plenty of toughness and intangibles, Harrison will make a great late addition to a Division I class.
Wade Watson, attack/midfield, Holly Springs (N.C.)
A legitimate goal scorer in every sense of the word, Watson can absolutely hammer the rock from distance, but he also has the soft hands and lacrosse IQ to get open inside and finish. His positional versatility is also a plus.
Landon Parker, midfield, Holly Springs (N.C.)
An all-around gritty player with a ton of similarities to Harrison, Parker gobbles up ground balls with ease and brings a toughness to the table. He’s been a stalwart on the circuit this summer for 91 Carolina, playing both man-up and man-down, and he’s an elusive dodger who can beat his defender with ease.
