Matt Madalon and the Princeton Tigers got their 2024 class off the ground on Sunday with a legacy commitment from Lawrenceville (N.J.) LSM/D Kevin Morrow. He is the son of Tiger great and Warrior Lacrosse founder Dave Morrow.

What Princeton is Getting:

The 6-foot-3, 160-pound defender has all the pedigree. His father, Dave, won the Schmeisser Award for college lacrosse’s best defenseman in both 1992 and 1993 while helping lead Princeton to consecutive final fours. That included the program’s first national title in ’93. But Morrow possesses far more than just elite pedigree. A versatile playmaker, he has shown the ability to play and thrive at close defense, LSM, and short-stick defensive midfield. He played quite a bit of minutes at SSDM for the Big Red this past spring. While maybe not the most aggressive defender physically, Morrow knows how to cause trouble for his matchup. Arguably the most notable attributes of his game are his speed and stick skills. Morrow runs the field very well and is often able to make things happen in transition, whether he is the one who goth the break started or not. He also exhibits a great deal of hustle in nearly every phase of the game, never giving up on a play until its done.

What it Means for Princeton:

Rated as a four-star by Inside Lacrosse, Morrow’s commitment gives the Tigers a strong piece to begin building its 2024 class with. Princeton, who’s coming off a Championship Weekend appearance, has been exceptionally good on the recruiting trail in recent years as they have top 10 classes in each of the previous two cycles, per IL, and have signed three combined Under Armour All-Americans in the 2021 and 2022 classes.
