Will be interesting to see where he ends up. Last year I would have said Syracuse was in great shape but after Dylan transferred and Derek lost PT his senior year I would assume were running even or behind Maryland and JHU.
Really interested to see how this recruitment plays out, gotta figure despite his brother deciding to transfer, Syracuse will be all over him. Sounds similar to the Powell's in that the third brother is likely to be the best.Dan Maltz, Attack, Stone Bridge (Va.)/Black Wolf and SweetLax
There was no attackman more precise, more crisp, as a feeder and off-ball player than Dan Maltz, the younger brother of current Maryland attackman Dylan Maltz and former Syracuse attackman Derek Maltz. The youngest Maltz, like Derek at his age, is still thin, but his understanding of the game is impressive as he was able to quarterback his team effectively throughout the three days and produced a lot of points along the way. He can finish on the crease and inside mid-range like Derek, showing seemingly pre-programmed quick stick but also the ability to crank up and hit the top shelf repeatedly with the same release from the wing. But he is also effective initiating like Dylan with a quick first step, keeping his head up and looking to move the ball with his hard passes. The ball was in and out of his stick in transition, where he was dangerous. The righty just knows where to be off ball, a lot like his oldest brother. He is always looking for a way to make a play, with and without the ball. He was one of the most productive attackmen whenever he was on the field, very unselfish in making the extra pass, and he can do it deceptively and almost machine-like with his consistent mechanics. Dan The Man was a standout at other events we attended this summer, so look for more on him.
Still think Syracuse is behind UMD and Hopkins in this recruitment? I'd say 2019 is far off, but not in this era of lacrosse recruiting.Will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Honestly its tough to say, assuming Dylan leaving was really only homesickness I would think SU was in decent shape with him especially with his father and Derek being former players here. If Dylan was still on the team this would be a home run but now its cloudy at best.Still think Syracuse is behind UMD and Hopkins in this recruitment?
