Earlier today it was reported that Brennan O'Neill, the consensus number one player in the class of 2020 from St. Anthony's (NY), had decommitted from Penn State and his final two schools were Duke and Notre Dame. The 6-2 attackman has made his decision as Inside Lacrosse reported this afternoon that he has now committed to Duke

O'Neill's commitment is a huge plus for Coach Danowski and the Duke Blue Devils. O'Neill, who has been compared to Gary Gait and John Grant Jr., has the potential to make a huge impact the minute he steps on Campus. His skill set along with his speed, size, and strength makes him a threat from almost anywhere on the field.

The electrifying attackman has had a ton of hype surrounding him since he originally committed to Penn State back in 2016. The hype has continuously grown as he has put up plenty of highlight performances over the past couple of years.

O'Neill has an uncanny ability to finish from inside and really anywhere on the field. Those who have followed O'Neill at St. Anthony's or on the club circuit with Team 91 Crush know he is a special player and will be a great asset at Duke. O'Neill is now the third 5-star recruit that as committed to Duke in class of 2020. The other two 5-star's being defenseman Cole Krauss from Delbarton School (NJ) and midfielder Ryan Mackenzie from Christian Brothers (TN).
