'We're At A Point of Crisis': Early Recruiting Remains Hot Topic For IMLCA
I feel like I should have developed feelings about early recruiting. This has been one of the hottest topics in college lacrosse the last few seasons and yet I find myself decidedly neutral as to whether early recruiting is fine or the blood of the Antichrist. That's . . . weird.

I think my lack of a definitive position on early recruiting is that I have trouble reconciling two competing thoughts: (1) People should be free to make decisions as long as those decisions don't injure others; and (2) The opportunity to make decisions often creates disastrous consequences. With respect to the first thought: Many young individuals are perfectly capable of making a decision that impacts their future in tangible and meaningful ways; with respect to the second thought: Many young individuals aren't capable of making a decision that impacts their future in tangible and meaningful ways. There's no apparent bridge between the two competing thoughts, and that's probably why blood leaks out of my ears when I think about early recruiting.
