Syracuse lands Class of 2020 No. 3 recruit Owen Hiltz

first_imgSyracuse men’s lacrosse added a key offensive piece Wednesday afternoon from the Class of 2020. The class’ No. 3 overall recruit Owen Hiltz, who had been committed to Denver since Sept. 2018, has flipped his commitment to Syracuse instead, according to Inside Lacrosse. Hiltz, a left-handed midfielder, is expected to join the Orange for their 2021 season. Hiltz, who’s originally from Peterborough, Ontario, is currently a senior at Culver (Indiana) Military Academy. As a junior, Culver recorded a 100-point season for the national prep champions.  Former Princeton head coach Pat March, whom Syracuse hired as offensive coordinator in September, played a big role in getting Hiltz to flip, per Inside Lacrosse. March had coached several Culver players in the past at Princeton. Though Hiltz won’t join SU this season, he joins Chase Scanlan as an offseason addition for SU. Scanlan, who last played for Loyola, the team that ended Syracuse’s 2019 season in the first round of the NCAA tournament, scored 43 goals in 17 games last year. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange will also get midfielder Tucker Dordevic, who sat out all of his sophomore year with a foot injury, back to the field this season.
