Jim Mitchell and the Bellarmine Knight's have secured another commitment in the class of 2019. This time time it comes from 3-star attackman Preston Rhodes out of Northview High School (GA)/Thunder LB3. Rhodes is the eight player to commit to Bellarmine in the class of 2019 and the third attackman. 

The 5'7 140 pound attackman can do many things on the field. Rhodes quarterbacks that offense from X and is great feeder. He can also finish and handle the ball very well from inside. His dodging is great as he is very quick and explosive which helps him beat his man and get around the cage from X. 

Rhodes isn't just an X attackman as he can be used to get the offense started on the wings and shooting or feeding from up top. His lacrosse IQ really shows as he is a very versatile player who can be put in various different roles. His game draws similar comparisons to Joey Sankey as he is an attackman that is great at multiple sports on the field.

Bellarmine now has eight commitments in the class of 2019. Rhodes is the highest rated player in Bellarmine's 2019 recruiting class with a 76 overall and 3-star rating. Attackman Stephen Bickel is the only other 3-star committed to Bellarmine in the 2019 class. In that class Bellarmine has three attackmen, two midfielders, two goalies, and one defenseman.
