Right before Thanksgiving, Kyle Hyland of Hinsdale Central committed to the University of Notre Dame. Hyland, who grew up in Connecticut, moved to Hinsdale as a freshman. He is a face-off specialist/midfielder who also plays for the True 2016 Illinois State Team. His commitment is significant because he is one of first (if not THE first) sophomores locally (not including Illinois players attending boarding schools elsewhere) to commit to a D1 program. Here's the announcement from True Lacrosse, and TopLaxRecruits.com also published an interview with Hyland today (January 5).
Below is Hyland's highlights from this past summer.
