Coach Torpey and the Panthers have gotten a commitment from Brayden Mayea. The Windsor, ON native is another addition to the pipeline of Canadians heading south to play in the NCAA, and specifically High Point.
Mayea has a background in box lacrosse playing for the Windsor Clippers in the OJBLL where he was named the 2018 Western Conference Rookie of the Year. He was also drafted 14th overall in the OJALL draft by the Six Nations Arrows, but would only play in one game with them past summer.
In the field game Mayea plays attack for Hardcor lacrosse which is a club program out of Ontario.
Mayea is very good at getting to the inside and beating his man from the Wings or behind the cage. Scoring inside seems to be where Mayea is most efficient. He is also very good at throwing the right fakes to get the goalie to move. Not only can Mayea be a threat inside and on the Wings, he can also push it out in transition and make something happen with his passing or shooting.
With the commitment of Mayea High Point now has four players committed in the 2020 recruiting class. Mayea joins midfielder Colin Cooke, faceoff man Jake Blevins, and defensemen Cory McDonald in that High Point 2020 recruiting class.
