CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – John Tillman, the Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men’s Lacrosse, will welcome the country’s third best incoming freshman class this year, according to Inside Lacrosse magazine, which released its annual list of top recruits this week.

Tillman’s first official recruiting class, which ranks first in the Ivy League according to the publication, includes six players listed in Inside Lacrosse’s Power 100 newcomers from around the country.

Jack Doyle, a midfielder, heads the group of Crimson as the No. 2 rated newcomer, followed by midfielder Alex White at No. 32. Defenseman Jason Gonos checks in as the No. 52 recruit, while midfielder Pete Berg is rated No. 57, midfielder Peter Schwartz appears at No. 63 and defenseman Brad Cappelini stands at No. 77.

In just his second season on the Harvard sideline in 2009, Tillman guided Harvard to an 8-5 overall record and 3-3 mark in the Ivy League. The Crimson reached as high as No. 11 in the national rankings and the team’s eight victories marked the most for the program since the 2002 season.
