Inaugural Midnight Mania: O'Neill's Highlight Goal, 12 Standouts, Box Scores

This kid has absolutely torn up the summer circuit & a PG year is going to do him wonders coming out of Cali.

Graham Blake | A | Marin Catholic (Calif.) | Thunder LB3 | Syracuse
Blake did a really good job getting to the front of the cage and his sweet spots, showing explosiveness and lacrosse IQ down the stretch. A rising senior who will PG before joining the Orange, he had a handful of nice feeds (whether they were caught or not), keeping his head up at all times. His best of the goal of the night was called back, getting his hands free and burying one top left.

Reading the write-up, I’m pretty sure he’s technically a ‘19 so he’ll play his senior season this year at Marin Catholic & then PG. He may not have decided on his PG destination yet.

Fairly surprising, family is very tight with Liam Banks and I know Graham has been in Syracuse this past summer working out with Dylan Donahue. Curious to see if there is more to the story.

I see the value of going to Harvard and having that degree. However if you have the grades, Harvard will be there when you graduate from Syracuse.

To me if your smart enough it doesn't matter where you get your undergrad as much. Grades, extracurricular, and skill speak for themselves.

All that being said he may just want to go to Harvard more than Syracuse. Good luck losing to Yale for four years (me just being salty we lost a really good player :bat:)

There’s also a high probability that he’ll pay less to attend Harvard than he would SU.

The Ivies (especially Harvard & Yale) are starting a trend using their massive endowments to pay for student tuition.

This helps them attract top prospective students by selling no/less debt post graduation.
