It’s pretty much a certainty every year.

When the final numbers get tallied up, NLF founding member Laxachusetts will – without fail – end up as the club with the most commitments in every single grad year. Laxachusetts alums find homes at every level of college lacrosse, and later this summer, the club will help its 1,000th player in club history find a collegiate home.

Those numbers are completely preposterous. It also doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down any time soon. More ’25s are soon to follow, but LXC has already put together a who’s who of commits in the class.


Leading the Way in Commitments Again

Two-time defending national champion picked up five-star attackman Teddy Lally (Thayer, Mass.) and four-star attackman/midfielder Colin Kenney (Noble & Greenough, Mass.) The Belmont Hill (Mass.) four-star duo of attackman Preston Evans and two-way midfielder Lindan Verville committed to Virginia.

Army made an unprecedented Laxachusetts statement by landing four players, including the Thayer (Mass.) trio of Ty Chouinard, defenseman Jack Cappadona and midfielder Gus Beaudry. The Black Knights rounded out the group with Scituate (Mass.) midfielder Willy Robinson and St. Sebastian’s (Mass.) defenseman Devin Maguire. Rival Navy snatched up its ’25 goalie in the form of lefty four-star Ethan Train (Noble & Greenough, Mass.).

A pair of midfielders landed in the Ivy League when four-star Owen Crann (Middlesex, Mass.) chose Penn and John Stenberg (St. Sebastian’s, Mass.) picked Dartmouth. Goalie Chandler McClements (St. Sebastian’s, Mass.) will join Crann as a Quaker. Faceoff midfielders Kyle Hata (Choate, Conn.) and Anthony Dara (St. Thomas Aquinas, Fla.) verballed to Maryland and Utah, respectively.

The Run Doesn’t Stop

LSM Colten Yates (East Catholic, Conn.) is headed to the Big Ten with a verbal to Rutgers. Another defender, Jack Curran (Needham, Mass.) committed to Richmond. Midfielders Brayden Mattera (Walpole, Mass.) and Nolan Martindale (Lincoln Sudbury, Mass.) opted for Merrimack. Holy Cross also landed a set of LXC and St. Sebastian’s teammates as attackman Paul Armstrong and midfielder Crosby Thurmond picked the Crusaders. Attackman Liam Goodwin (Duxbury, Mass.) rounded out the Division I lacrosse commits by staying home at UMass-Lowell. Midfielder Kyle O’Leary (Noble & Greenough) will play Division I hockey at Yale.

Defenseman Christian Chiusolo (Thayer, Mass.) chose Alabama-Huntsville and LSM/defense John Cary (Andover, Mass.) committed to St. Michael’s as the team’s two Division II commits. Jack Cooper, a midfielder from Andover High School (Mass.), verballed to Dickinson.

Laxachusetts Top Uncommitted 2025s

Marco Ramos, goalie, Rivers (Mass.) 

Ramos is as established a goalie as there is in the ISL, starting for Rivers since eighth grade. He was third in the league in save percentage this year after stopping 57.7 percent of shots and averaging nearly a dozen saves per game. He’s also a plus communicator who excels in the clearing game. Rare are the times he yields a goal that he shouldn’t give up, and he’s usually good for a highlight reel save or two every game.

Angus Miller, defense, Groton (Mass.) 

A fast-rising defensive prospect out of a program that’s produced a ton of them, Miller’s going to be a great get for a high-academic program. He boasts a 3.9 GPA and a 1510 SAT. Couple that with a 6-1 defender with great speed and toughness and doesn’t get beat in coverage, and you’ve got something to work with. The Jackson Hole (Wyo.) native is as steady as it gets, and he’s a perfect fit for just about any defense.

Troy Fredrickson, midfield, Westwood (Mass.) 

A public school gem, Fredrickson is a good athlete with excellent size for the position. The lefty’s got a rocket of a shot and is diverse on his dodges, particularly using his bull dodge and speed dodge to get by defenders.

Teddy McKeigue, defense, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.)

The lefty defender, who started for the Arrows this spring, has a high IQ and quickly diagnoses plays. Coaches laud his ability to take coaching and apply it immediately. McKeigue is a terrific cover guy who will make a nice late addition to a program.

Julian Singh, defense/LSM, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.)

Another talented Arrow, Singh is a plus athlete with good size and the range to cover a ton of ground. He can play both LSM and down low, but his future probably lies up top. He’s willing to take chances to make a play.

Will Chiasson, midfield, Noble & Greenough (Mass.) 

Chiasson is a little undersized for the position, but his explosiveness and burst make up for it. A starter for the ‘Dawgs as a junior in a season in which he scored 10 goals, Chiasson’s speed and right-to-left split help him separate and set up a hard on-the-run shot.

Laxachusetts Top 2026s

Tedy Frisoli, attack, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.)

The last of the Frisoli boys at Seb’s and Laxachusetts is one of the top offensive threats in the country. Frisoli had a monster year for the Arrows, racking up 38 goals and 42 assists for 80 points. He’s got the elite level bounce that everyone loves in attackmen, and his two-handedness, vision and production indicate that he’ll be highly sought-after come Sept. 1.

Tuck Gilbane, attack, Noble & Greenough (Mass.)

Named a five-star earlier this spring, Gilbane put up another impressive campaign for the ‘Dawgs. He tallied 35 times and dished out 20 helpers on a new-look Nobles squad, good enough for third in points among ISL sophomores. A solidly-built attackman who’s also a good hockey defenseman, Gilbane has a nose for the cage and can beat you in a multitude of ways. He’s thrived as both an off-ball lefty – as a righty – and an X attackman for Nobles. His future is an as ambidextrous X guy who can provide mismatches.

George Kelly, defense, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.)

One of the fastest prospects in the class and a legitimate Division I football prospect as a running back, Kelly is as good as it gets athletically on the defensive side of the ball in the class. An NLF at IMG All-Star, Kelly can play both LSM and close defense. In the spring, he played down low and consistently erased No. 1 attackmen against a stacked ISL schedule. Kelly’s got excellent footwork, and he’s an aggressive defender who plays with nastiness and tenacity.

Brian Burke, defense, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.)

One of the more versatile defenders in the class, Burke can effortlessly switch between close and LSM. His coaches love his leadership, and it doesn’t hurt that he has an excellent stick, the ability to get up and down the field and knows how to take the ball away. At close to 6-3, the lefty passes the eye test, and he’s battle-tested in the ISL after starting at LSM as a sophomore.

David Hahm, faceoff midfield, St. Sebastian’s (Mass.)

Hahm was a force at the faceoff stripe for the Arrows this spring. The sophomore rang up a 64.4 percent winning percentage while taking 343 faceoffs, numbers that show off both his tactical skills and endurance. Hahm’s got an above-average stick for the position – he scored four times and added four assists – and his athleticism is a plus as well. A football running back, he also has a high compete level.

Liam Daly, attack, Portsmouth Abbey (R.I.) 

Scoring goals never goes out of style, and Daly is really, really good at scoring goals. Daly put forth an outstanding sophomore campaign for Portsmouth Abbey after shining in the winter as well. He’s proven that he can finish against high-level competition on the club circuit, and the deception when he shoots makes it hard for goalies to track his shot.
