     Title: CLAM ALUMNI & CURRENT CLAMS LINKED TO PRESEASON TOP 20 PROGRAMS
The following Clams set to play ball at Preseason "Top 20" NCAA programs this spring, or for committed players, springs to come.



Inside Lacrosse's face-off Yearbook is out with its Top 20 lists for both D1 and D3, and a handful of Clams will be out there competing on these teams. Apologies in advance to D2 players who received their own rankings; none are on D2 teams receiving Top 10 pre-season recognition for the coming season.
