John Danowski and the Duke Blue Devils continued a successful run on the recruiting trail in the 2023 class late Tuesday morning, landing a commitment from McDonogh (Md.) junior attackman McCabe Millon.
Ranked as the No. 1 player in the class by Inside Lacrosse, Millon reportedly chose the Blue Devils over a final two that also included Virginia.
Millon’s decision makes him the third No. 1 player in the class to choose Duke in the past four cycles, joining a pair of St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) attackmen Brennan O’Neill (2020) and Andrew McAdorey (2021).
The son of US Lacrosse Hall of Fame member Mark Millon, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound attackman is coming off a sophomore campaign in which he put up 54 points off 28 goals and 26 assists. He missed this past summer with a broken hand.
Millon is the first attackman in the Blue Devils’ ’23 class and third on the offensive end, joining a pair of elite midfielders in Benn Johnston (Avon Old Farms, Conn.) and Thomas Delgado (Brunswick, Conn.), as well as Georgetown Prep (Md.) LSM Mac Christmas, Conestoga (Pa.) goalie Patrick Jamieson, and Manhasset (N.Y.) faceoff man Cal Girad. Johnston, Delgado, and Christmas are also top-10 player, per IL.
