Pretty good on the recruiting front.  The Buckeyes are pulling in some 4 and 5-star recruits, and competing well with the lacrosse blue bloods of the ACC. They need to fill some big holes this season though.

thanks Navy - esp since the 2016-2017-2018 Top100 & adjustments paint a 3 yr picture around our Run to the Top this past year.

in summary, compared to the Top10 powers, our recruits are few and far between, with 2 in the top 50 in 3 years....

we have 'somore overachieving to do'... Lucy!   ;-{)}  GO BUCKS!

Add another entry to the list of teams that know how to draft better than the Browns.

How does one team get 3 picks in the top six?

Via trades, compensation, etc. Pro lacrosse has a lot of flexibility since almost none of the players can only play the game to make enough money to live on.

If you enjoyed the Buckeyes' deep NCAA run, the NLL is a whole new world of lacrosse. It's got many similarities to hockey (Gretzky played box lacrosse growing up and credits it for helping him develop his game), with faster pace, bigger hits, manic action, and a shot clock. You can find a lot of Canadian box lacrosse games on youtube, as well as the last world games.

I went to a few Rochester Knighthawk (team these guys were drafted to) games back when I lived there and would wholeheartedly agree. Indoor lacrosse is a ton of fun to watch, even if you have no clue the rules or any prior history with the sport.

Ohio State has started fall ball. Playing the MLL Champion Ohio Machine in a scrimmage on October 8th and then ending with a scrimmage against North Carolina on October 14th.

This should be interesting. Withers and Fannel were drafted by the MLL (Major League Lacrosse) as well. Whithers in the first round by Atlanta and Fannel in the 2nd round by Rochester.

I know NLL plays Box Lacrosse (indoor), so I'm guessing their season runs opposite of the MLL.

By the way, shout out to Bear Davis (Hilliard native), who coached the Ohio Machine to the MLL playoffs the last four years, the finals the last two years, and the Championship in 2017.  Show those Baltimore boys Ohio's here!

I think they overlap a little but players can play both.  I'm a fan of the MLL but I live within sight of the Naval academy where the Bayhawks play.
