John Tillman and the Maryland Terrapins landed a commitment from one of the top goalies of the cycle on Tuesday evening as Western Reserve Academy (Ohio) goalie Tyler Coryea verbaled to the Terps. He is the third commitment in the 2024 class for the Terrapins.
What Maryland is Getting:
A four-year starter for WRA, Coryea has proven time and time again just how steady and consistent of a shot stopper he is. At 5-foot-9, 165-pounds he doesn’t possess that “ideal” big body that fills up the cage but it doesn’t matter. This past spring he helped the Pioneers to a 17-6 record that included a semifinal finish in the Midwest Scholastic Lacrosse Association (MSLA) tournament. Coryea showcases extremely good movement in between the pipes, exuberates a ton of energy with his play, and is especially good at savings those low shots.
What it Means for Maryland:
Hailing from the same high school program as Maryland great and current PLL star Kyle Bernlohr, who has coached Coryea, the rising junior could very well be the next big time playmaker in that heralded Maryland goalie pipeline. Coryea is ranked as the No. 44 player in the class and rated as. four-star by Inside Lacrosse. He gives John Tillman’s program not only its third commitment of the cycle, but third blue-chip commit.
