     Title: 24 Clams Commit Heading Into Fall Tournament Season
With 24 Clam commitments since the 2014 Spring, the Clam program is excited for the upcoming fall tournament run.

With the lacrosse recruiting landscape seemingly changing on a year to year basis, we at the Clams wanted to make sure we took the time to formerly congratulate all off our recent college commitments.  In the past, this meant congratualting for the most part Clams heading into their senior year.  Though this is still the norm at the Division II & III level, the DI push has seen the Clam program garner two commitments on this past summer's youngest class (2017's).

As our programs ramps up for our fall run, we will undoubtebly see more and more commitments added to this all ready impressive list.  A few quick highlights from the 21 Clam commitments.
