Ryder Garnsey Is Staying At Notre Dame

The rising junior isn’t going anywhere!

Notre Dame Athletics

Nearly a week after an initial report by US Lacrosse Magazine indicated that Ryder Garnsey was granted a release from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the attackman has responded:

US Lacrosse Magazine sources said that one of the options he was considering was to join the Virginia Cavaliers, but it appeared to maybe not be a good idea throughout the week.

Saturday’s initial report stated that Garnsey would have to sit out a year before playing if he transferred inside the conference, which would mean he would debut with the Cavaliers in 2019. On Monday, Inside Lacrosse’s Terry Foy mentioned that there was a possibility that he might have a year of eligibility wasted as well. He later confirmed that later in the week.

In my opinion, Garnsey made the right choice not to jump ship to another ACC school. As Safe mentioned in our latest College Crossecast, he would pretty much be wasting two years of play in 2018 (sitting out and wasting a year of eligibility).

So with Garnsey, their leading scorer, back in the fold, the Fighting Irish return roughly 80% of their offense from a year ago, with the only big loss being Sergio Perkovic. Their recruiting class is a very good one too, but it remains to be seen how Kevin Corrigan would want to play on offense this year. He returned to a slow approach last year in the first season without Matt Kavanagh.

People are celebrating responsibly:
