Ohio State Signs 12 to National Letters of Intent for 2018-19

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Twelve student-athletes have signed National Letters of Intent to further their academic and athletic careers as members of the Ohio State men's lacrosse program, head coach Nick Myers announced today. The group consists of four midfielders, three attackmen, two goalies, two defensemen and one face-off specialist.

"I would like to compliment my coaching staff as they have done an outstanding job of identifying a class of young men that really fit not only our needs but also into the culture we have worked so hard to establish," said Myers.

We look forward to getting these men in the Scarlet and Gray next year and following them all this spring as they compete for championships."
