ALBANY, N.Y. – UAlbany men’s lacrosse incoming freshman Tehoka Nanticoke has been featured in the Inside Lacrosse magazine Recruiting Issue, being honored as #1 recruit in the country.
From Six Nations, Ontario, Nanticoke played at the IMG Academy in Florida before coming to UAlbany. He was named an Under Armour All-American and played in the UA All-America boys game in Towson last summer.
In 2016, he suited up for the Iroquois Nationals in the U19 World Games, leading the team to a bronze medal finish. He was named a positional player MVP at attack, netting 22 goals on 30 shots, adding nine assists and 11 loose balls.
Nanticoke will suit up for the Great Danes starting in the 2018 season. Inside Lacrosse’s cover says about Nanticoke: “IL’s #1 recruit and next Native American star is like no one we’ve ever seen.”
UAlbany formerly had another #1 recruit, Lyle Thompson, who started play in the 2012 season.
The Inside Lacrosse Recruiting Issue is available through the publication’s website.
