Brown Men’s Lacrosse Recruiting Class of 2015

Providence, Rhode Island - Brown men's lacrosse coach Lars Tiffany and the Bears' coaching staff have released the Brown Lacrosse Recruiting Class of 2015.  This outstanding group of 11 student-athletes is both talented and athletic, and will  arrive on College Hill in September 2011.

"The game of lacrosse continues to expand and attract more and more talented athletes," said Tiffany.   "This Brown Lacrosse recruiting class is proof of the emergence of high-level prospects from non-traditional hotbeds.  The message is clear:  we are searching and finding multi-sport athletes throughout the nation.  This group of 11 brings a variety of athletic experiences to the Brown Lacrosse program, a distinction that will persist as we seek out future recruiting classes.  All of us are eager to reconvene in September and begin building the foundation for the 2011-2012 year, with this class of recruits making their impact upon our future immediately.  The success of this class will be defined collectively, not individually, over the next four years."
