2014 Michigan Lacrosse Recruit Plays, Scores in Under Armour All-America Game

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Things keep looking better for the future of Wolverines lacrosse.

Michigan commit, Ian King (Cincinnati/St. Xavier), played in Saturday's (July 6) Under Armour All-American Lacrosse Classic. The young man tallied one goal, one assist, and one ground ball in the crazy shootout of a game (52 goals were scored, so although defenders were invited, they must not have been allowed to play). He already has some decent size at 6'2" and 178 lbs, but a little more weight is sure to be gained once he gets on campus.

King, a stand-out attacker at St. Xavier, had 72 goals, 35 assists, and 49 GBs this season. Other honors in his time at St. Xavier include: team MVP, Most Valuable Offense, First Team All Region, First Team All-State, All-American, Warrior 40, Under Armour All-American. He was the only Michigan commit on the Senior roster (PJ Bogle, from Culver Military Academy, was a part of the Underclass roster), but that isn't too surprising. Most kids are still sticking with the usual suspects; however, getting even one player on this team is a good sign of what John Paul has been able to do with promoting the program.

King had also considered programs such as Georgetown, Bucknell, Brown, Penn, and perennial powers (and future B1G members) Maryland and Hopkins. To be able to steal this kid away from Maryland and Hopkins should get Wolverine fans excited for the future. He clearly had academics on his mind when choosing Michigan, too.

By all appearances, Michigan is getting one hell of a kid.
