Loyola graduate Nick Mohler was among 13 newcomers introduced this week by Boston University head coach Ryan Polley. Twelve freshmen, six of them 2017 US Lacrosse All-Americans, and a junior transfer comprise the incoming class.
“This is a very strong class,” Polley said. “We felt it was an important class because of the necessity to replace our inaugural group. We feel very comfortable that these 13 newcomers can come in and replace those 16 seniors. Certainly there’s some guys that will play right away, but we also feel the class is very deep.”

Mohler, a three-time All-Mission League defender for the two-time US Lacrosse Southern Section champion Cubs, is one of four defenders in the Terriers’ incoming class. Here is how Coach Polley described Mohler in the program’s news release:
“Nick is an all-around defender who has good size and good feet. He can play up top or play down low. He’s rangy, he’s very good off the ground and he’s aggressive. He had a wonderful senior year and we’re excited about his potential to come in and play for us.”
Boston University went 12-5 overall last season, the fourth year of the program’s existence. Mohler will join Southern California players Hayden Ruiz, a senior midfielder from Santa Margarita Catholic, Tristan Ruh, a junior attack from Pacific Ridge (San Diego) and Kaveh Torabian, a sophomore defender from Oaks Christian, on the Terriers’ roster.
