This may be the biggest roundup ever.

A Full Pint

Jesse King stepping into leadership role for Ohio State lacrosse
The Buckeyes' transition from a Logan Schuss-dominated universe to something different heavily revolves around the development of Jesse King. King, expected to shoulder a heavy role for Ohio State this season, is apparently on his way to filling the void that Schuss left in the Buckeyes' production:

Fellow junior midfielder David Planning said King has been playing like a veteran ever since stepping foot on campus.

“He was a leader and a captain from day one,” Planning said. “Whether it was on the field barking out orders with Logan and Dom, or outside of the field, it’s not new for him to pick up this leadership role this year.”

“Jesse is a very mature young man,” [Nick] Myers said. “He is a guy that this year realizes that the spotlight is on him more and with that comes a bit more responsibility to manage his emotions and be the leader that we need him to be. I think he has really relished that and so far has done a nice job with it.”

Randy Staats officially cleared to play for Syracuse men's lacrosse, will participate in scrimmage at Towson
Here comes the boom:

Syracuse's Randy Staats said he was officially cleared for competition by the university on Monday after a paperwork issue was resolved.

Staats said, and John Desko confirmed, that the transfer from Onondaga Community College will compete for the Orange on Saturday during an exhibition game at Towson. Syracuse is scheduled to compete against both Towson and Bucknell.

Staats will run either at midfield or attack for the Orange, depending on what form of the Destructor that John Desko chooses.
