We’re finally off and running with the first NLF class of 2024 player rankings.

It’s a testament to the depth of this class that more than 100 players received consideration for the rankings, which feature the top 60 players in the country. As the class continues to make itself known, we will expand our rankings to include more and more players, particularly after their big recruiting summer.

Players from all over the country are eligible for the rankings. That’s regardless of whether or not they play for an NLF club. Rankings are compiled after extensive analysis from club coaches, high school coaches and other prominent figures in the lacrosse world. We’ll be counting down to No. 1, continuing with the No. 3 player in the class.


As a reminder, feel free to check out the rest of the site for plenty of spring high school coverage. The NLF has covered games in Pennsylvania, Maryland, D.C., New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, California and more. We look to continue to increase our coverage. If you’re looking for game stories, standouts, player quotes, etc., this is the place to find it.

Without further ado, let’s continue the class of 2024 top 60. All ten players in this group are considered five-star prospects.

3. Tade Wynn, goalie, Culver (Ind.) / West Coast Starz

Straight out of central casting for what a goalie should look like, and Wynn has the game to back it up, too. He’s an outstanding ball stopper and is significantly better in the clearing game than he was a few months ago. An injury to senior five-star goalie Adam Blind (Resolute / Harvard) has opened the door for the sophomore to split time with junior Colin Vickrey (Princeton), and he’s made the most of it.

“Watching his confidence grow from playing for us this year has been incredible,” Culver coach Jon Birsner said. “It’s made him even better, which is scary for his potential moving forward. He’s a different kid now.”

Wynn has a very strong and well-built lower body, which allows him to make a ton of saves with his legs. He’s explosive in getting to the ball and is calm, cool and collected in the cage. Shooting at him can sometimes feel like shooting at a black hole. The ball disappears into his crosse into a hurry.
