Michael Sowers — the prized player in the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse transfer portal — has chosen his next destination. He will play the 2021 season as a member of the Duke Blue Devils, according to Inside Lacrosse.

Ty Xanders, who broke the story, said that Sowers still needs to secure admission into Duke University.

Sowers became available when the Princeton Tigers refused to take back players, who withdrew from the school. He, along with several other players, withdrew as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic to save their eligibility.

This forced Sowers to choose a new team. The front-runner for the Tewaarton Trophy was leading the country with 16 goals and 31 assists for 47 points through just five games of the season.

Then, in the middle of March, the Ivy League shut down spring sports. The NCAA eventually followed suit, which left spring players around the country with an empty feeling as their season was lost.

The NCAA previously announced that the spring athletes, who lost their season, will be granted an extra year of eligibility. If their schools refused to take them back, like Princeton, they’ve had no choice but to move on.

Now, with Sowers, the Blue Devils are going to be one of the favorites to win the Championship next May.
