Pretty nice night for the Terps in the UA game:
David Solomon (1 g, 1a) - looked good finding his teammates with the ball. Finally, got an open shot in the 2nd half and nailed it with some nice velocity.
Kevin Forster (1g, 1a) - looked controlled out there. Used his nice size to help him get inside for a nice goal.
Jay Carlson (2g) - On his 2nd goal, he showed his great moves working around the crease.
Goran Murray (2g) - Definitely will be an LSM. Looks ready to follow in the line of offensive LSMs for the Terps with 2 goals. Had a really nice play on the 2nd FO of the game, the north FOman popped the ball out and thought he would be able to get there first, but Murray did and flattened him.
Bobby Gribbin (1g) - The south was losing at the FOs, but then Bobby went out there and things changed. Looked good moving around the field.
Joe LoCascio - Not much for LoCascio in the game. He did show some nice speed keeping up with Ryan Tucker on a romp down the field.
Eric Parnon - Wow! Showed nice speed and stick skills carrying the ball downfield on clears. Really looked nice - ready to go for the Terps.


All the attackmen looked nice, I could see all three start for the Terps next spring - but I doubt Tillman will do that.
Gribbin will certainly be pushing those returning upperclassmen on the Terps' first two midfield lines. He and LoCascio might have to wait their turns though.

Me too.
I'm getting more optimistic, a lot of incoming freshmen looking good in the UA game.
Still a lot of inexperience to overcome with a whole new attack and whole new close defense.

Terp 2012 recruit Zack Fixen wins the Agility drill at the Warrior 40 camp
according to IL:

Fixen sounds like he might really have a special level of speed like Dan Burns or Paul Gillette. :)

Maryland had two 2012 recruits on the Warrior 40 - who impressed the Best list:
Tyler Brooke, Jr., Conestoga (Berwyn, Pa.), attack
Brooke showcased a good shot and the ability to get around defenders consistently.

Charlie Schnider, Jr., Landon (Bethesda, Md.), midfield
Schnider had an impressive Accuracy Challenge, scoring 14 points in two rounds, but it was the Maryland commits’ dodge that impressed his peers.

Congratulations to future Terp, Charlie Raffa, on making the U-19 team. Nice to see another player in UMd's incoming freshmen class acquire an honor. 7 UA AAs and Raffa on the U-19 team, makes 8.

On the otherhand, UMd usually gets a few players on the U-19 team, so it seemed a little bit of a downer not to have a couple more. Of course, 4 of UMd's UA AAs didn't try out for the U-19 team, and making the U-19 team involves having a hot weekend in front of the coaches. For example, Joe Walters didn't make it 8 years ago.

I was also very surprised/disappointed - Where they too old or not invited?

I don't know. Someone on Laxpower forum is posting that Goran Murray (along with teammate Walrath) were to old.
Baldo on laxpower mentions:
"Kids need to be nominated locally before they can send in an application. The tryout roster is determined by a USL committee from those nominees"

Age limit
"The upper age limit is that all players must be under 19 as at 31st August of the year before the Championships take place."

A number of future Terps make the Rise/ESPN High School All-American team:
http://rise.espn.go....ursuit=Lacrosse

1st team Terps:
Midfield: Bobby Gribbin, Sr., Georgetown Prep (North Bethesda, Md.)
Gribbin was named Washington Post Player of the Year. The Little Hoya won 78 percent of his face offs, add to that, 40 goals and nine assists this season. Gribbin has a great game and should be a star at the next level. Gribbin is verbally committed to Maryland.

LSM: Goran Murray, Sr., Haverford School (Haverford, Pa.)
Murray is one of toughest and quickest players coming out of high school this season. He plays with intensity and is always eager to get the ball. Murray was named All-EPSLA and All-Delco for the second year in a row. He is verbally committed to Maryland.

LSM: Kellen Miller, Sr., Landon (Bethesda, Md.)
Miller was named Washington Post First team All-Metro. He helped lead the Bears all season long after nursing a knee injury during the preseason. Miller led a Landon defense that allowed fewer than five goals per game. Miller is verbally committed to Maryland.

2nd Team Terp:
Attack: Kevin Forster, Sr., La Salle College (Wyndmoor, Pa.), Maryland

HM Terps:
Zach Fixen, Jr., Palos Verdes (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif ), attack Maryland
David Solomon, Sr., Salisbury (Salisbury, Conn.), attack, Maryland
Eric Parnon, Sr., Darien (Darien, Conn.), defense, Maryland
Jay Carlson, Sr., St. Paul’s (Baltimore, Md.), attack, Maryland
Joe Locascio, Sr., St. Anthony’s, (South Huntington, N.Y.), midfield, Maryland
Tyler Brooke, Jr., Conestoga (Berwyn, Pa.), attack, Maryland
Ryan Lehman, Jr., Garnet Valley (Glen Mills, Pa.), defense, Maryland

Gribbin and Holmes should be a dominating faceoff duo

Yeah.
And the Terps have Charlie Raffa coming in from LI.
Of course, if Gribbin wins a FO going towards the offensive end, things could get very interesting. :)

I keep hoping to see a solid goalie added to the recruiting class of 2012, with Lamolinara supposedly not returning, and Leonard and White in their last season this coming spring - it leaves the Terps with just Amato and Bernlohr for the 2013 season.

I could be wrong but I don't think White is coming back either...

That would still give the Terps 3 goalies for next spring: Amato, Bernlohr and Leonard - which should get the Terps by, one hopes.

-------------------------------------------------------
Inside Lacrosse lists a 2013 recruit for the Terps:
Connor Cannizzaro, A, Cazenovia (N.Y.) has committed to Maryland. A big-time scorer in upstate N.Y., Cannizzaro registered 83 goals and 36 assists for the state champion Lakers this year. Played at Under Armour and Blue Chip, among others. Also a touted ice hockey player. Check back for more on Connor's decision in the coming week or so.
http://insidelacross...nd-loyola-2012s

Cazenovia NY is in Section 3, which is going into Syracuse's lair - but Syracuse has been grabbing up a few MIAA players, so I guess it is only evening up the score.

Over on, IL's forum, they have UMd with 2 other 2013 recruits:
Mac Pons, D, Boys' Latin (who has been mention in previous posts)
John Belz, M, Calvert Hall
Rise/ESPN has the Terps listed for a goalie in 2013
Daniel Morris, Dallas Jesuit.

IL now has UMd up to 6 2013 recruits:
Maryland
Mac Pons, D, Boys’ Latin (Md.)
John Belz, M, Calvert Hall (Md.)
Jake Clise, A, Loyola Blakefield (Md.)
Tommy Hollenback, M, Calvert Hall (Md.)
Connor Cannizzaro, A, Cazenovia (N.Y.)
Dan Morris, G, Dallas Jesuit (Tex.)

Pons, Hollenback, Cannizzaro, and Morris played on UA underclassmen teams.
Morris has a nice write up on the South squad:

Plays for Coach Chris Surran. Dallas Morning News All-Area Lacrosse Team, 2011 Dallas Jesuit Team Co-MVP, 2011 THSLL North District, DI All State 2011 Dallas Jesuit. Team Captain 2011. THSLL North District DI All District Honorable Mention 2010, Dallas Jesuit Rookie of the Year 2010, T99 All Star Team 2010. Member of recreational high school basketball team. Volunteer coach for youth lacrosse clinics. Enjoys playing drums and snow skiing. Committed to the University of Maryland.

http://www.underarmo...r/Daniel-Morris

Clise, Hollenback, and Pons are 2013 Baltimore Crabs:
From IL:
Jake Clise, A, Loyola Blakefield (Md.) has committed to Maryland. A strong finisher inside, Clise will make the switch to Loyola this year from Queen Anne's on the Eastern Shore. This season, he earned 1st Team All-Bayside honors and played exclusively in Crabs events this summer. Clise is reportedly a promising quarterback in football as well. He also considered Virginia, North Carolina and Duke.

Tommy Hollenback, M, Calvert Hall (Md.) has committed to Maryland. A horse in between the lines, Hollenback started at d-middie for the Cardinals in 2011 but will be a capable offensive threat in the coming years. This summer, he played at Jake Reed's Blue Chip and for Baltimore at the Under Armour tournament, as well as the events with Crabs. Also a strong LB in football, he also considered Hopkins, North Carolina, Virginia and Duke.
http://insidelacross...syracuse-loyola

Mac Pons, LSM/D, Boys' Latin (Md.) has committed to Maryland. The sophomore made the Lakers' varsity as a freshman, starting and excelling at close defense for the final few weeks of the season. Probably more of a LSM in college because of his size, but looks to be one of the most impressive longpoles in his class. Has outstanding footwork and stick skills. Also considered Penn State and North Carolina, among others.
http://insidelacross...d-duke-bucknell

Pons was part of the ESPN/Rise Warrior top 40 event.

John Belz got his mention in IL back in February:
John Belz, M, Calvert Hall (Md.) has verbally committed to Maryland. Belz, boasting notable athleticism and an outstanding shot, was a member of the Cardinals' varsity as a freshman. He will likely see increased minutes in 2011 due to graduation losses for one of the MIAA's preseason favorites. Plays for Trilogy during the summer and also considered North Carolina and Johns Hopkins. Belz is the second known sophomore commit for the Terrapins.

The Terps' have the #1 freshmen class according to I.L.

The Terps have 10 players in IL top 100:

http://insidelacross...eshmen-rankings

6. David Solomon, Attack, Salisbury School (Conn.), Maryland
11. Bobby Gribbin, Midfield, Georgetown Prep (Md.), Maryland
16. Kevin Forster, Attack, LaSalle (Pa.), Maryland
27. Goran Murray, Defense/LSM, Haverford School (Pa.), Maryland
30. Jay Carlson, Attack, St. Paul's (Md.), Maryland
31. Joe LoCascio, Midfield, St. Anthony's (N.Y.), Maryland
39. Eric Parnon, Defense, Darien (Conn.), Maryland
58. John Barney, Midfield, Delbarton School (N.J.), Maryland
67. Kyle Bernlohr, Goal, Western Reserve (Ohio), Maryland
78. Charlie Raffa, Midfield, St. Anthony's (N.Y.), Maryland

I think that Kellen Miller (Landon) should probably be in the top 100, but IL does their best.

Nice interview with Terp freshmen David Solomon on Inside Lacrosse:
http://video.insidel...--david-solomon

I expect Solomon will win a starting role on UMd's attack, whether it will be as a feeder or right-hand finisher is hard to know. Of course, there will be a lot of competition for the 3 spots opened up by the graduation of Young, Catalino and Reed. Owen Blye, who started the second half of the year when Reed was injured, will probably take 1 spot.

Today, we get an interview with Terp freshman, Kevin Forster on I.L.:
http://video.insidel...--kevin-forster

I wouldn't be surprised to see Kevin Forster grabbing one of those starting attack roles for the Terps next spring. Of course, the sophomores: Quinn Haley, Brendan Saylor, and Sean McGuire, do have a year's experience on Forster and Solomon.
