LAX Families: College Recruitment Too Soon?

Joe Lombardi, a former colleague of mine, is an amazing sports journalist and an expert in lacrosse.

If you haven't seen it yet, check out his list of Garden City High School lacrosse players who have already made commitments to colleges.

He posts updates frequently via Twitter. You can follow him here for the latest.

Lombardi highlights classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015. It's amazing (at least to me) how early kids are making commitments to colleges. Even freshmen are these days. 

Parents of lacrosse players: Slippery slope? Too young?
