Dylan Maltz has been granted a release from Syracuse and plans to enroll at Maryland for the fall, according to the sophomore attackman's family.
Maltz, ranked the sixth-best attackman and the 18th overall player in the 2013 high school class by Inside Lacrosse, appeared in six games this past spring for the Orange, notching three goals and an assist, including an important goal in Syracuse’s 12-10 win over Johns Hopkins.
Maltz, an Under Armour All-American in 2013, left Stone Bridge High in Ashburn, Va., as the school's all-time leader in goals (190), assists (130), points (320) and ground balls (198).
Maltz is the younger brother of former Syracuse attackman and captain Derek Maltz, who finished his career with 77 goals and 25 assists. The Maltzes’ father, Derek Sr., is a Syracuse alum and was a member of the Orange's first NCAA championship team in 1983.
Dylan Maltz has three years of eligibility remaining to use with the Terps.
