The number 7 2019 Prospect, according to Inside Lacrosse, Nick DeMaio out of Coronado, CA has committed to Maryland after recently decommiting from Boston U. The 5-star attackman/midfielder will leave his postgrad year at Avon Old Farms (CT) to enroll at Maryland next month.
Nick DeMaio will join his older brother Anthony who is a redshirt sophomore, and also enrolled at Maryland mid-year in 2017.
DeMaio is a lefty and can make things happen when he’s on the field. During his spring season last year he had 390 points (198G,192A) with Coronado. He has a crafty stick and can clearly make an impact with his shooting and passing. DeMaio is a “combo” player as he can play attack or midfield. With his versatility he should be able to contribute within that Maryland offense.
Coming in mid-year may be a challenge for DeMaio, but he will have a role with the Terps sooner than later.
