Fighting Irish Welcome 10 Recruits for 2011-2012

NOTRE DAME, Ind. University of Notre Dame men's lacrosse head coach Kevin Corrigan has announced the commitment of 10 student-athletes who will join the program beginning in the 2012 season. The newcomers hail from seven different states, including three from Maryland and two from New York.

There are two Under Armour All-Americans, attackman Conor Doyle and goalie Conor Kelly, in the talented class. The class features five midfielders, three attackmen, one defenseman and one goalie.

"As a whole, this is just a great group of kids that fit with our program here at Notre Dame," says Corrigan. "They also fit with what we needed as a class and with our team. We have three guys coming in at the attack position who are all really talented and very capable and they offer different skills. We have five guys coming in at the midfield that offer us athleticism and a high lacrosse IQ and different abilities with their size and strength. At defense and in thecage, we just have one kid at each spot but they are both very, very good."
