11 freshmen and 1 transfer, to be precise.

A lot of young faces will be taking the field for the Villanova Wilcats' Men's Lacrosse team next spring, as Coach Mike Corrado has brought in 11 freshmen and 1 transfer to the program.

"Our coaching staff is extremely excited to welcome this group of outstanding student-athletes to Villanova University," Corrado said in an official release. "Each one of these team members is exceptional both on the field and in the classroom and we're looking forward to their arrival on campus."

The head coach isn't exaggerating when he states the impressive work on and off the field. One of the incomers is a Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List member, an award that recognizes the most outstanding men's and women's lacrosse player in the country. The twelve additions also feature two All-Americans, five All-State, and ten All-Conference.

The one transfer is Jake Froccaro, who comes over from the Princeton Tigers. He has two more years of eligibility. His brother Joey is an incoming freshman to `Nova, while his older sister Jackie is a senior on the women's lacrosse team.

Below is a table of all the additions.
