Seton Hall Prep rising senior attackman Brendan Barrett has become the first to commit to play Division I lacrosse at Boston University. Barrett was an All-Star selection at the Brine National lacrosse Classic for Team Pennsylvania in early July.
Gradiation Year: 2013
College Choice: Boston University
Club Affiliation: DeCicco Lacrosse
Lacrosse honors: 2011 & 2012 Brine National Lacrosse Classic with PA team, 2012 all-star at Brine National Lacrosse Classic, 3 year Varsity player at Seton Hall Prep, registered 9 goals and 7 assists as Midfielder in 2012
Academic Honors: Member of National Society of High School Scholars
Intended major: Communications, Media Studies, Film
Reason for college choice: “Boston is a great town to go to college in. When I visited and met with Coach Ryan Polley (Malvern Prep graduate), he made me feel like I would really enjoy my time here as a lacrosse player, but even more as a student. Academics are very important to me and BU has a great reputation in that department.”
HS team’s Outlook for 2013: We graduated a very talented 2012 class this year. However, I have great faith in my 2013 class, the 2014’s, and the young 2015’s to get the ball rolling early on. I learned so much last season and hopefully I can take that and help lead the team to a county title, group title, and state title, one step at a time.
Schools considered: Rutgers, Fairfield, Hartford, Amherst, W&L
Other comments: “I’d like to thank to my Mom and Dad for the amount of time, money, and stress they’ve put into this process. I can’t thank them enough, and I will forever be in their debt for what they have done for me. I’d also like to thank Andrew DeCicco for coaching and aiding me during the recruiting process.”
