Top Uncommitted Players
(in alphabetical order)
Colin Fagan, SSDM, Bishop’s (Calif.)
A relative newcomer to the sport after first picking up a stick in eighth grade, Fagan has all the makings of a lockdown SSDM in college.
“He’s the most athletic and fastest kid in our program,” WCS director Jono Zissi said.
Also a slot receiver and safety garnering FCS interest, Fagan was lights out at the NLF National Championships and his stock continues to soar.
Jack Follette, midfield / attack, Westlake (Calif.)
A movable chess piece that’s comfortable at both midfield or attack, Follette’s, “the most improved player in our program,” according to Zissi.
Follette brings a relentless mindset, good grades and the toughness to get to the paint and finish.
Hudson Lewis, defense, Jesuit (Ore.)
Head on a swivel around Lewis. He absolutely loves to mix it up physically and has a thick, strong frame that allows him to win just about any physical battle. The younger brother of Vermont‘s Tatum Lewis, Lewis is a presence on the back end garnering mid-level D-I attention.
Atticus Oliven, defense / LSM, St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.)
There’s a good case to be made that Oliven would already be committed if he hadn’t missed the bulk of the summer due to injury. 6-2 defenders with the versatility to play up top or down low don’t grow on trees. St. Ignatius’ best defenseman as a sophomore, Oliven has elite upside.
Blake Washburn, attack, Torrey Pines (Calif.)
An undersized but incredibly productive lefty, Washburn is an excellent midrange shooter with the ability to consistently get his hands free. He’s not afraid to take a hit to make a play. Washburn was the Falcons’ go-to man in the clutch last spring, burying three overtime winners.
