Former St. John’s attackman Harry Kutner has enrolled for graduate classes this fall at Loyola, a team spokesman confirmed Wednesday.
The left-hander is expected to join the defending NCAA champion in the spring and provide competition to replace Eric Lusby (Severna Park), the 2012 NCAA tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. In his first two seasons at St. John’s, Kutner scored a combined 50 points. An injury two games into his junior season ended his year. As a starter in 15 games last season, Kutner added 20 goals and nine assists.
In addition, the Greyhounds added Zach Herreweyers, a freshman attackman who will look to be in the mix on the left side. At the faceoff X, Loyola will be bolstered by sophomore transfer Blake Burkhart, a long-stick from Rutgers who won 54 of 100 draws last season.
Pair of attackmen transfer to Towson
Former St. John’s attackman Joe Leonard joins Towson after spending his freshman season with the Red Storm in 2012, putting up two assists in nine appearances.
As a attackman for the U.S. under-19 team that brought home gold in Turku, Finland, last month, Leonard put up 16 points in seven games.
Joining him will be former Georgetown Prep standout attackman Cory Dobyns, who comes over from Drexel.
2 more rising sophs commit
Continuing a trend of oral commitments from rising high school sophomores, attackman-midfielder Alex McGovern (St. Paul’s) has committed to North Carolina. In the summer, he participated in the Freestate game and in events with the Maryland Lacrosse Club, as well as the Shootout with SP. McGovern also considered Notre Dame, Duke, Loyola and Michigan.
Meanwhile, midfielder-attackman Alex Concannon of Syosset (N.Y.) High has committed to Johns Hopkins. A varsity player in eighth grade, Concannon had 15 goals and 10 assists as a freshman, including the goal to win the Class A Nassau County championship title for Syosset. He also considered Michigan, North Carolina, Duke and Lehigh.
