Malvern Prep goalie Wills Curley heads the list of recruits this fall for coach Lars Tiffany at Brown University, which is coming off an NCAA Tournament bid.

This year’s talented group will look to crack the lineup of a Brown team that posted a 12-4 record in 2009 that included a tough overtime loss to Johns Hopkins in the first round of the NCAA Championship.

“Thank you to Errol Wilson, Jon Thompson and David Evans for their extensive work with gathering such an athletic class of young men,” said Tiffany. “Our staff’s third recruiting class appears to bring to Providence greater speed, along with talent.

“We are eager to throw these men into the fray this fall and to teach them right away the style and intensity that is Brown Lacrosse. This class will ultimately be defined by the efforts not of each man individually, but instead collectively, as they commit to the advancement of Brown Lacrosse.”

Here is a recap of the recruits:
