Ranked No. 56 overall
LSMs are always expected to have a great handle and to be able to take the ball away, but Carroll takes it to another level. He’s not shy about throwing an array of checks and lands a high percentage of them. The younger brother of Georgetown attackman Aidan Carroll, James is a menace on the ball with his surgical ability to rip the ball out. A One Percent Showcase All-Star, he easily gathers ground balls and gets the transition game going. Carroll is a threat to score in transition and continues to improve his 1v1 defense.

There might not be a player in the ’23 class with as good a knack for taking the ball away. Carroll loves to get out and press, and if he gets his stick on you, the ball’s ending up on the ground. Carroll has an array of checks that he’s willing to throw to get the ball out, and he doesn’t miss often. He’s excellent off the ground, loves to push the offensive pace and has the stick to score a lot of goals in transition. He’s done a nice job of slowing down some of the country’s top offensive midfielders, and should continue to be a force as he adds size and strength.
