Ransom, in particular, bolstered his case to be a part of the first NLF class of 2024 rankings in January. The righty attackman recorded 42 points as a freshman for Charlotte Catholic, and while he’s an electric shooter, he also showed that he can get his teammates involved. He dished out a helper on Dolan’s second goal and had a handful of nifty pinpoint passes to his teammates.
Despite that, he’s really at his best as a finisher. His second of the game was a great play in traffic that he finished, and that spinning backhander to kick things off really showed the type of high-level skill set that he has.
“I just had a nice cut and I cut behind the defense,” Ransom said. “I got a pass and I didn’t know what to do with it, so I kind of just flicked it behind me and it went in. … In the second half, we kind of slowed it down, played our offense and put people in the right spots and we did what we can do.”
All-Star. Ransom might have scored more goals than anyone throughout the day and it’s entirely possible that not one of them was a run-of-the-mill finish. He had the goal of the day on a spinning backhander going across his body off of a ridiculous bounce pass in transition from Julian Navab. Ransom is really smart and has the guts and savvy to try any shot in the book. He had a great backhander to start the day and continued his onslaught with a bevy of shooting angles.
All-Star for the second time. Ransom showed improved vision, flashing great hands and always has his head up, able to select passes and get his teammates involved. At heart, he’s a finisher first, willing to pull off audacious solo moves, like a behind-the-back goal at the tournament, and has a powerful shot and is an all-around strong finisher.
All-Star. Jack has tremendous vision and he played unselfishly all day. He has a great overhand shot, in addition to several different release points that make his shot hard to save. He’s a smart and creative lacrosse player in the paint. He has very good stick protection and footwork: I can’t recall Jack drawing a double team and turning the ball over when I watched him play throughout the event. Ryan Flanagan’s 24/7 program continues to impress with the talent they produce year in and year out, and Ransom is the latest in that line.
