    Big commit, I think Albany was going after him hard. SU seems to be slowly working its way back in with native players.

    Ya, his brother is a sophomore at Albany now and his grandfather even went there. Big win.

    Owen Hill | 3d Rising

    Iroquois Nationals U19 Second Round Tryouts: High-School Age Standouts | 3d Rising

    Owen Hill, Midfield/FO, Akron High School (N.Y.)/Seneca, 2018

    Hill’s diversity sets himself apart on the field. His ability to play any position, and play it well enough to stand out, is really impressive considering the level talent surrounding him. Another smooth lefty with a stable physique, Hill was able to create from the high wings and either distribute to a teammate or rifle off a shot in the blink of an eye. He also had no problems getting back in to defend transition. And yes, he also took his fair share of face offs, once again showing his versatility.

    The Bomberry article in the DO was interesting. I think that transfer was big, and if both of the Bomberry's have big years, it will continue to help cuse bring in future players. Having Staats as an advocate can't hurt either. Need to get Austin.

    Was he "flipped?" Unofficially listed as Albany by LaxPower.

    That I am not sure, I remember hearing Albany was going after him hard but I don't recall if he previously committed there or not. With the amount of success Scott Marr has been having up on six nations and even the local Onondaga Res this is an enormous pick up. Key now is him staying committed and being eligible.

    From November event...

    FLG in 3d Fall Shootout 2016: Notes on Standouts | 3d Rising

    Owen Hill, Midfield, CNY Roadhawks, 2018

    The Iroquois Nationals U-19 midfielder and Albany commit is at this point a seasoned midfield veteran running with the Roadhawks. He’s explosively athletic and has high level stick skills, but he also has strength that allows him to find additional power to get by, through, around and over defenders. His athleticism allows him to pull off acrobatic shots and, when going after groundballs, he is impressive and crafty. He can get up the field quickly, almost finding another gear and pulling away from other players. He continues to get better and look more and more like an instant impact Division I recruit for the Great Danes. He could better his monstrous numbers from last spring this year for Akron.

    is anyone as confused as I am with the the Owen Hill commitment?!? Casey Vock put out a tweet last week stating Owen had committed to 'Cuse but it he still appears as a commit to Albany on both Recruiting Rundown (Ty Xanders) and LaxPower database. Now Vock puts out a write-up about standouts from an event and he still is quoting Hill as an Albany commit?? I'm lost, is he coming to Cuse or Albany???

    Additionally a poster on LaxPower on one of the Syracuse Threads (Syracuse 2017 or Syracuse Recruits) stated that the Owen Hill who committed to Cuse isn't the same Owen Hill going to Albany, which makes no sense.

    I'm so confused on this commitment, can anyone decipher where Hill is committed?

    It is pretty confusing. My best guess is that he flipped his commitment to Cuse and Vock didn't update his notes from November when he posted them this week. But that still doesn't explain the Mr Burns' claim that it's a different Owen Hill. Hopefully Desko reached out to the correct Hill.

    Thanks Whitey, I'm just hoping we did land him as he is a solid replacement for the loss of Chase Scanlan, much easier to swallow if we did get Owen.

    Unfortunately I'm not a twitter person but can anyone tweet Vock and ask him if Hill is now a 'Cuse commit or still Albany, would love to get some clarity. Maybe the Bomberry's had something to do with getting Hill to join Cuse.
