Just talked to John Jay’s Kevin Drew, who was grabbing a bite to eat with teammate Chris Bocklet somewhere off the New Jersey Turnpike en route to the Jake Reed Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp in Maryland.
Drew, an athletic 6-foot-2 midfielder, told me that he has just orally committed to attend Syracuse for lacrosse with the possibility of also making the Orange’s basketball team. Drew’s father, Bill, is a 1978 Syracuse graduate who played basketball for the Orange.
Drew, who enjoyed a breakout junior season in which he scored three goals in John Jay’s 11-10 double-overtime upset of Huntington in the state semifinals, is likely to step into Syracuse’s lacrosse lineup right away, possibly as a defensive midfielder with the possibility of moving to offensive middie.
He paid two unofficial visits each to Syracuse and Hopkins and also considered North Carolina and Hofstra.
