Jones, Botkiss, Ford Named to IL’s Power 100

Inside Lacrosse magazine’s annual recruiting issue is out and with it the Power 100 Freshmen rankings — the top 100 incoming college freshmen, as ranked by the magazine’s staff. This year, three Southern Californians made the list.

Defenders Jarrett Jones (Palos Verdes/Georgetown) and Beau Botkiss (Torrey Pines/Harvard) are ranked Nos. 51 and 52 on the list, and midfielder Christian Ford (Bishop’s School/Michigan) is ranked No. 65.

Jones is the highest-ranked player among three Georgetown recruits in the Power 100, while Botkiss is No. 3 among six incoming freshmen at Harvard to make the list. Ford is the third-highest ranked of four Michigan recruits.

Last year, Corona del Mar brothers Hugh Crance (Notre Dame) and Hoyt Crance (Yale) made the Inside Lacrosse Power 100, along with Foothill’s Nate Marano (Denver) and Bishop’s Connor McCroskey (Harvard).
