Ty Banks, Western Reserve Academy (Ohio), sr.

No. 5 ranked prospect in 2023 per Inside Lacrosse and Georgetown-committed defender was named an Inside Lacrosse Senior All-American as Western Reserve Academy went 15-5. Banks is a two-time first team all-Midwest Scholastic Lacrosse Association pick.

Mac Christmas, McDonogh School (Maryland), sr.

The 6-4, 200-pound long stick middie transferred to McDonogh (Maryland) from Georgetown Prep (D.C.) and immediately bolstered an already-talented national power. A top 10 recruit in country per Inside Lacrosse, he helped the Eagles win a MIAA state championship. Duke signee was once considered the nation's top recruit.

Kyle Colsey, Ridgefield (Connecticut), jr.

Virginia committed attacker led a state title effort as a freshman (all-state selection) and is now one of the top junior prospects in the country — which makes more sense when considering his lineage: He's the son of Syracuse lacrosse legend Roy Colsey and his older brother, Ryan Colsey, plays for Virginia. Averaged 4.3 goals and 1.3 assists per game as a junior for the Tigers (12-7, 5-4).

Lucca DiBartolomeo, Malvern Prep (Pennsylvania), jr.

A powerful, bruising presence in the midfield, the long-stickman beat a rare form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma and became a USA Lacrosse All-American as a junior. Malvern Prep coach Matt Mackrides called the Penn State commit the heartbeat of the team. Led Malvern Prep to a 16-7 record, won the prestigious Inter Academic League tournament.

Ryan DiRocco, Haverford School (Pennsylvania), sr.

Senior attack had a team-high 46 goals and 43 assists on the season, helping Haverford School to a 10-0 Inter-Academic League record and 17-3 season with wins over nationally ranked St. Anthony's, Georgetown Prep and Malvern Prep (twice). The Army signee and USA All-American was MVP of the Inter-Ac, one of the country's most competitive leagues.

Owen Duffy, St. Anthony's (New York), sr.

Named National Player of the Year by USA Lacrosse after logging 43 goals and 35 assists in 13 games, the North Carolina pledge was the alpha on a national power St. Anthony's. He had five goals against rival and fellow powerhouse Chaminade. Friars coach Keith Wieczorek puts him among the best to play for the vaunted program. Transferred from Westhampton Beach (New York) as a sophomore.

Ryan Duenkel, St. Johns College (D.C.), jr.

Nation's No. 1 prospect in 2024 led St. John's to a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship, beating Paul VI. Committed to Virginia last September. Duenkel also stars as the Cadets' kicker on the football team.

Jordan Faison, Pine Crest (Florida), jr.

Maybe the country's preeminent two-sport phenom, Faison is believed to be playing football and lacrosse at Notre Dame. He's a three-time USA Lacrosse All-American and an FHSAA 2M-1M first team all-county football selection as an athlete.

Spencer Ford, Boys' Latin (Maryland), jr.

Long, lanky attack emerged as Boys' Latin's star scorer and creator as a sophomore and developed into one of the nation's top prospects as a junior. Lauded for his field vision and passing ability that bear resemblance to his father, Spencer Sr., who played eight years of Major League Lacrosse.

Caleb Fyock, St. Johns College (D.C.), sr.

Top-rated senior goalie prospect in the nation was a force in the net — and at times an inspiration off the field – for a St. John's team that won a WCAC championship. The 6-1, 270-pound keeper will keep the red colors — he's committed to Ohio State.

Jack Kiefer, Cherry Creek (Colorado), sr.

A shutdown attacker-turned-defender, Kiefer is an all-state and All-American selection committed to Duke. In a state that punches above its weight class in terms of elite lacrosse talent, Kiefer, a Duke commit, leads the pack.

Hudson Hausmann, Brunswick School (Connecticut), jr.

Hausmann is ranked No. 5 nationally in 2024 by Inside Lacrosse and made waves by choosing an Ivy League school over contending powerhouses Duke and Virginia. The five-star middie stands out on a five-star-laden Brunswick.

Leo Hoffman, Brunswick (Connecticut), sr.

Penn commit is a fast, athletic midfielder and the bonafide leader on a high-major prospect-laden Brunswick, which spent much of the 2023 season ranked No. 1 nationally by various outlets, finished 13-4 and shared the New England West 1 Conference championship.

Matt Jeffery, Cheshire (Connecticut), jr.

The state of Connecticut has produced some of the nation's top high school prospects and Jeffery is at the top. The Notre Dame-committed middy shot up to the No. 1 junior in the National Lacrosse Federation prospect rankings last year after a strong summer. Connecticut Class M state champion Cheshire went 19-3 on the season. He spurned elite prep school options and stars as Cheshire's star quarterback and point guard.

Benn Johnston, Avon Old Farms (Connecticut), sr.

The No. 6 prospect in the nation is a physically dominant presence lauded for his shot range and elite change of direction. Committed to Duke.

Nate Kabiri, Georgetown (Maryland), sr.

Under Armour All-American led Georgetown to a 12th Inter-ac conference title with an undefeated conference slate. The No. 3 ranked prospect in nation, a 6-foot right-handed attackman committed to Princeton, scored 40 goals and logged 28 assists on the season.

Kyle Lehman, Wissahickon (Pennsylvania), sr.

Penn State signee is one the top players in a state loaded with lacrosse talent. Lehman's 65 goals, 40 assists and 91 groundballs. The multi-year standout led Wissahickon to three league titles and two state playoff appearances.

Ben McCarthy, Haverford School (Pennsylvania), jr.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Duke pledge is a game-altering presence around the faceoff stripe and is the second-ranked prospect per National Lacrosse Federation. Helped Haverford School to a 13-3 record (10-2 conference) and an Inter-AC championship runner-up finish. Also plays football.

McCabe Millon, McDonogh (Maryland), sr.

Inside Lacrosse and the National Lacrosse Federation consider the attacker the top prospect in the country in 2023. Millon led McDonogh to a Maryland Class A title, thumping nationally ranked Calvary Hall 8-0. His versatility and lacrosse IQ can be traced to his genes: His father, Mark McCabe, and mother, Erin McCabe, are the only married couple inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. He flipped his commitment from one lax blue blood to another — Duke to Virginia.

Tade Wynn, Culver Military Academy (Indiana), jr.

The top-ranked 2024 goalkeeper in the country, the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Wynn plays a travel schedule against the nation's top teams and shows out. The Army commit is ranked No. 8 nationally by Inside Lacrosse. Logged wins over the likes of Western Reserve Academy (twice), Boys Latin and Gonzaga College Prep.
