Michigan Lacrosse: The Recruiting Continues

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

In the midst of football recruiting news and the impending season, the Michigan lacrosse team is also looking to bolster its future with recruits of its own.

Michigan was able to pick up a couple more verbal commitments for lacrosse recently, one of them being the first commit for 2016 in Crey Bankes, a defender out of the Blake School in Minneapolis.

We'll see what he looks like in two and a half years.

This is still a very good get for the Wolverines. Check out his videos here and here.

And, if Brady Hoke needs a little more help on the football field, there's this...
