Former Loyola Maryland midfielder Chase Scanlan announced that he has agreed to transfer to the Syracuse men’s lacrosse program.
Scanlan, who entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal last month, had decommitted from the Orange in December 2015 to play for the Greyhounds. Scanlan, who started his high school career at Silver Creek (N.Y.) before attending IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., considered transferring to Johns Hopkins, Maryland, Cornell, Penn State and Virginia before settling on Syracuse.
Scanlan announced his decision Tuesday night when he added a single orange emoji to a tweet. According to Inside Lacrosse, he will receive Syracuse’s famed No. 22 jersey, which has been worn by Gary Gait and Charlie Lockwood, among others, and was last used by Jordan Evans, who graduated in 2017.
Scanlan recently finished his freshman season at Loyola with 43 goals – the most by all midfielders at the Division I level, the most by a first-year player at that position and a school and Patriot League record for a midfielder.
Scanlan, who was named the conference’s Rookie of the Year and a second-team All American, also added 15 assists for 58 points, which ranked third among the Greyhounds.
