Brandon Bailey '17
Bowie, MD / Eleanor Roosevelt HS
5'11'' 175lbs
LSM/Defense
#46


Verbals to SB: http://insidelacrosse.com/news/2012/08/06/recruiting-2014s-denver-unc-air-force-navy-rugters-plus-2013w

He attends Bowie HS in MD, where he plays football and track, however, they only have a club team.  So i guess he competes in lacrosse only at nearby Eleanor Roosevelt HS.

Sometimes its hard to find info on a defenseman, especially when they have a rather common name.

Nagle loves multi sport athletes. Bailey has long jumped over 20 feet. He'd probably be a welcomed addition to our track and field team.

Thats 8 guys, to my knowledge, already signed up for the Class of 2017.  And they all have a year left in HS.

Also, 1 signed up so far thats heading into his junior year.

Looks like we got a verbal from Paul Bentz of Massapequa for the class of 2017...can't find a ton of info but it looks like he had 3 goals and 2 assists in the Nassau class A Semi's vs Port Washington.

Yep- here's more at 2:45: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXAXphOTnV8

Looks like he loves the invert.  Someone with that skill set can be converted to an attackman or play both.

Paul Bentz '17
Massapequa, NY / Massapequa HS
Midfield
#14


2012 LI Showcase Rising Seniors Game (Nassau)
2012 All Conference
2012 stats: 16G, 13A

3 goals in the county semifinal: http://massapequa.patch.com/articles/massapequa-boys-lacrosse-returns-to-title-game#c

And some video here (#14): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gh5nZkb-JwQ

Pequa made a perfect 10-0 in Class A this year, 15-3 overall, losing to some really great teams.  A goal shy of the county title.  Bentz returns next year.  Is he the younger brother of Stephen Bentz from Hofstra?

Looks like he is also a WR/QB.

Thanks SBUFan!!!

Ryan Bitzer '17
Riverhead, NY / Riverhead HS
Midfield
6' 165lbs
#10

commits: http://www.newsday.com/sports/high-school/football/high-school-football-1.811929/bitzer-earns-3-star-rating-for-riverhead-1.3912318

He's quite the competitor- bball PG (MVP); football QB/DB/K; lax midfielder (MVP, All County, Captain, started as a freshman).  He's so well rounded, he can score, pass, and even picked up 90 GBs last year.  Also an honor student and one year left to go!

If you look around the news, some of game stories and the quotes of coaches/opposing coaches indicate that he is a big-play type of athlete.

The count for 2017 (that we know of) is up to ten recruits already, with a year to go!

ID    Div    Name    Hometown    State    HighSchool    HS_St    Position    Status    College
91   1   Johnstone, Hayden   Toronto   ON   Hill Academy   ON   Goalie   E   Stony Brook
133   1   Garcia, Bradley   Fort Washington   PA   Germantown Academy   PA   Defense   E   Stony Brook
227   1   Rowe, Kyle   Vienna   VA   James Madison   VA   Midfield/​FO   R   Stony Brook
274   1   Cunningham, Gerard   Levittown   NY   MacArthur   NY   Midfield   E   Stony Brook
441   1   Mahon, Ryan   Bethpage   NY   Bethpage   NY   Attack   R   Stony Brook
455   1   Corpolongo, Alex   Lincolndale   NY   Somers   NY   Midfield   R   Stony Brook
490   1   Prestreau, Brian   Yorktown Heights   NY   Yorktown   NY   Midfield   E   Stony Brook
595   1   Bailey, Brandon   Bowie   MD   Bowie   MD   Defense/​LSM   E   Stony Brook
626   1   Bentz, Paul   Massapequa   NY   Massapequa   NY   Midfield   R   Stony Brook
658   1   Bitzer, Ryan   Riverhead   NY   Riverhead   NY   Midfield   E   Stony Brook


And of course, one already for 2018.

Id say we are pretty even with Hofstra (conservatively); a small step ahead of UA and Bingo (at least for 2017s); and quite a bit ahead of Hartford.  For BC, i just dont know the recruits well enough to gauge.  St. John's has a great start on 2017s.

Again, this is all based on what's public.
