Lots more chatter on the Laxpower threads for both Hof and UNC.  All speculation. 

However, i have to question this- he likely had a half or better scholarship at UNC.  Lets assume places like Hofstra have scholarships tied up for the next few years already, so its difficult to get substantial $$$ over to a junior with a busted foot mid year.  That just makes places like Hofstra that much more expensive; and im assuming places like lets say GT or Princeton dont take transfers (that might have academic issues, no less). 

Then again, all it takes is a scholarship kid out the door to free up the money to bring one in.  And from what im reading, that is exactly whats happening at Hofstra.

It's hard to beat Stony Brook's price tag even without a scholarship here. That's definitely one thing in Stony Brook's favor.

Yeah thats what im getting after- even as compared to most lacrosse schools- the Patriot, the whole Ivy league, etc.  Just to name a few.  Both leagues are expensive and hard to get in.  Laxpower now says he is transferring for the spring.  Count out transferring within the ACC (sit out).

There's also some schools that academically just wont take kids, or wont take kids that have the slightest academic issues.  Im thinking Ivy schools, ND, the military academies, etc. 

I guess a good fit could be places like UMass, PSU, OSU, Cuse, etc.  What about Delaware or Denver???

Here he could come home and play for the family and get a good education, for a low price.

Galasso: 'Want to See Where I Can Make Impact'

http://laxmagazine.com/college_men/DI/2012-13/news/100912_galasso_want_to_see_where_I_can_make_impact

....Galasso said he has a list of potential landing spots in mind but didn't want to delve into specifics.  "I have to keep my options open and see what people have to offer, see where I can make an impact, and see where I'll fit in the most," he said.

...Galasso did offer an opinion on Hofstra, a program already speculated by some as Galasso's destination since the school is located 20 minutes from his hometown of West Islip, N.Y., on Long Island.  "Hofstra is a great program, but I think it might be too close to home," he said. "I'm thinking maybe elsewhere, try to get a little bit away and still have that college experience."

That doesn' bode well for the Brook either...it's going to be a team close to home but just how close.

Ummmm HOW is West Islip 20 min from the University of Uniondale???

With traffic, its closer to an HOUR and 20 min.  And if you can count on one thing on Long Island, its traffic.   :(

Obviously im kidding.  But really its like 30 miles away.  Thats at least 45 minutes, ive done this drive many times.

 The article said if Galasso goes to a team that is on NC schedule this year he would have to sit out a year as per release agreement. That is going to eliminate alot of schools. I believe Stony Brook is the spot, if you read between the lines, not too far from home. I 'll go out on a limb and say he comes here.

Yeah but it also said he wants to be away.  And that UNC is too far.

To me, that means that he wants to be off Long Island but no more than 5-6 hours away.  The kind of driving where his dad and four brothers could get in the car in the morning, watch him play, and be home that night.  I would think, given all the above, that makes Delaware, UMass, Cuse, Rutgers, all viable options. 

I would say PSU, but i think they are on the 2014 UNC schedule.  Who knows, maybe Nova, Albany, Drexel, or even Bryant can be in the mix.

I could see Rutgers or Cuse.  I would love for him to come to the Brook more than anyone but Rutgers has BCS facilities and Brecht is a great coach.   Cuse, well they are Cuse. 

If he goes to the America East I would be shocked but it would be huge for the program.   Lehigh and UMass could be in the mix too.

 If Cuse, Rutgers, Lehigh are on NC schedule this year then he has to sit out a year. I believe they played last year. It would help if the schedules were released then we could play detective and eliminate from there. Listen I am a homer but Stony Brook gives him a chance to make an immediate impact, and also a chance to enjoy college life and be close to home. He did not say he wanted off the island, he said Hofstra might be too close to home. All I am saying is the Brook is not out of the picture. If you guys believe in Nagel and his ability to sell the program and recuit ( witch so far he has done a real good job ) then it is quite possible that we land Gallasso.

 Rule out Hofstra since they play NC this year. He wants to play this spring and that would mean he would sit this year.

Rule out Hofstra because Galasso said he aint going to Hofstra.

Desko confirmed that he is talking to Galasso: http://blog.syracuse.com/sports/2012/10/desko_confirms_that_syracuse_i.html#incart_river_default

Again, i think that if Hof is too close to WI, then SB is also too close to WI...

If Cuse has the ok to bring him I can't see him picking The Brook over the Orange.   Just my opinion though

It would be such a great story if he played at Stony Brook but Nagel did just cut his boy Diggle...Ha

 Yes I agree anyone would pick the cuse over the brook to play lacrosse, what I am saying is that it would not be a slam dunk for cuse due to the release agreement. That puts alot more schools in play like rutgers etc. What I do not get is the negative tone of this discussion. He would be a huge asset to the program and stranger things have happened, that's all I am saying.

Oh of course it would be a positive for our team- with four attackmen departed!

I think the issue with Cuse is, when they join the ACC in 2014, and UNC is undoubtedly on the schedule, will that prevent Galasso from signing with Cuse? 

Im doubtul, considering the statements Desko made... but with all that said, i am extremely happy with Rooney's progress, and the way Eastwood looked in the fall.  And weve got Schultz too.
