College Lacrosse: “Recruiting Advice For West Coast Players” From RIT Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Jake Coon And ConnectLAX
Be proactive with emails and phone calls. We typically want to see a recruit play over their fall and summer seasons. Again, be proactive. We like young men who reach out to us and express their interest.
Yes, the coach has some responsibility to recruit the player, but in the end players should initiate and maintain contact throughout their recruiting process.
What type of player do you look for–raw athlete or refined lacrosse player?
Bottom line, if you have talent you can find a home in the lacrosse world.
