Nothing was more of an impact on the college lacrosse offseason than the NCAA Transfer Portal.
While transfers have always been pretty regular in college lacrosse, the portal turned things up a notch. The NCAA’s Transfer Portal allows players to enter their name and test the waters without permission from their current program. The portal has made transferring much easier for the athlete.
Throughout the 2020 season, Lacrosse Bucket will track transfers performances week to week and examine some of the top performers.
Chris Gray, A, North Carolina: In the Tar Heels’ 18-11 victory over the Furman Paladins, Gray helped trigger a second half run to put the game away and secure the victory. Gray tallied an impressive nine points (5G/4A) in the win.
Colin Burke, A, Utah: Burke has been on a tear since stepping foot in Salt Lake City. In the Utes’ loss against Mount St. Mary’s on Saturday, Burke tallied four points (3G/1A).
Chase Scanlan, A, Syracuse: The star-studded attackman had a stellar performance on Saturday to help lead Syracuse over rival Johns Hopkins. Scanlan recorded six points (5G/1A) in the 15-9 victory.
