Layne Smith is a 2015 attackman who also plays a whole lot of box lacrosse. He’s not the tallest kid in the field, but he’s thick (5’11” and 195) and uses his strength and balance to his advantage very well. He also has a super stick, and finishes inside with a flurry of fakes.

I’m always looking for high school level highlight tapes where I am convinced that the player in question has a solid future in the college game. The player doesn’t have to be a top 10 D1 lock to get noticed, but they do have to do something special, like show an uncanny ability to finish, […]
At LaxAllStars.com, we are always on the lookout for high school players that show a little something extra, or something different. Sometimes it’s a check throwing D guy, sometimes it’s a FoGo, or a goalie, and sometimes it’s a 2017 who plays way above his age level. Today we have a 2015 with GREAT lacrosse […]
JP Masaryk is a rising senior (2014) from Fairfield Prep in Fairfield, CT and surprisingly, this Face Off prospect hasn’t committed anywhere yet. Late bloomer in the house? Perhaps! Check out the video of JP below, and tell me this kid doesn’t have some potential!
Today, at NOON ET, LaxAllStars will be hosting a LIVE Google Hangout on the subject of Recruiting, Elite Teams, and Travel Lacrosse! Our knowledgeable guests will include Trevor Tierney (of Tier Lacrosse), Xander Ritz (of Adrenaline Lacrosse), and Lee Southren (the founder of the NJ Riot).
Connor Wilson has found another diamond in the rough high school lacrosse recruit. Derek Andrews is a 2014 that can ball. It’s backhand box goal city!
If you’re interested in checking out a ton of high quality, recruitable talent today, look no further than The Lacrosse Network, as they are broadcasting a ton of games from the Stowe Lax Fest, put on by Bitter Lacrosse, in Stowe, VT. Honestly, I don’t think HS club lacrosse has ever been covered like this […]
College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
Photo credit: Adrln Blog Last week, our friends at Adrenaline, an LAS partner, hosted the 2013 Black Card Showcase in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In it’s second year, the Black Card event featured 175 high school boys lacrosse players who are counted amongst the top one percent of uncommitted aspiring collegiate athletes in North America. From what I’ve gathered […]
This Summer, LAS will be following around the NJ Riot 2016 club team, and by following them, we will try to gain some insight into the elite travel team scene. We will interview some players, and talk to parents, but let’s start from the beginning with an interview with the NJ Riot founder, Lee Southren…
The University of Idaho men’s lacrosse team recently released a new recruiting video that sheds a nice light on the MCLA program up north in Moscow, Idaho. Take a few minutes to watch it, assessing the highlights you see and listening to the comments from Colton Raichl, the club’s president. If you’re a high school junior […]
Over the next three years we’ll be following the NJ Riot 2016 club team. We’re interested to see how this one-off (at least for now) program can maneuver the club/travel team circuit, where their players end up, and any best practices that they learn during the course of their time together. Hopefully, these posts will […]
Please welcome Spike Malangone and LacrosseRecruits.com to LAS! Spike will be covering recruiting, high school and college lacrosse, and a number of other aspects surrounding the game.
The NCAA is proposing changes to the recruiting rules, so here are the three Rs of the issue: Recruiting, Reality and (de)Regulation. What does it mean for lacrosse?
Can one level of college lacrosse inherently be better than another level of lacrosse based on a $5,000 difference? Or is it more complex than that?
