It might be happening again: for the second time this offseason, one of the best to ever strap on pads at the NCAA level could be transferring. This time, it’s TD Ierlan, which would mark the second time that the elite FOS has transferred, though this comes under much different circumstances. With the Ivy League more and more unlikely to allow its teams to participate in the 2021 lacrosse season, TD Ierlan is once again in the transfer portal.
As he told US Lacrosse, he has yet to decide on a program, although it seems like he’s past the point of returning to Yale. He will still graduate from the prestigious Ivy school, but he will not finish his career there. Instead, we’re awaiting an update on where he’ll end up. Although he’s been contacted by Duke about a super team, he said he’s not particularly interested. Instead, keep an eye on Denver, which has already snagged two big-time Yale transfers in Jackson Morrill and Lucas Cotler. Plus, TD Ierlan told US Lacrosse that Denver was “really intriguing” as an option.
That’s the biggest news of the week, but it’s not the only thing that happened in the last seven days. This is the lacrosse news for the week of Jan. 19-25, 2021:
