Corona del Mar alum Hoyt Crance has been having a good day. Just hours after being named to the Inside Lacrosse Power 100 Freshman Rankings, he was listed as the No. 6 goalie in this year’s freshman class by RecruitingRundown.com:
6. Hoyt Crance / Corona del Mar (Calif.) / Yale
A relatively late commit, Crance and his brother Hugh (a freshman defenseman at Notre Dame) surrendered a smidgeon over three goals per game for two consecutive years, leading a defense that made the Sea Kings one of the very best in the West. Using a wide base, he has a high ceiling considering that he’s gotten better each year as well as athleticism that stands out on the gridiron. Yale will have an open competition and Crance will surely throw his hat into the ring.
