Nike/LM Preseason All-Americans: Division I Men

by Corey McLaughlin | LaxMagazine.com | Twitter | #LMRanks

This is a tight, competitive list, and there are some great players that just missed the 12-person cut. Here they are, this year's preseason Division I men's All-Americans.

Included are LM's five finalists for preseason player of the year — Connor Cannizzaro, Dylan Donahue, Matt Kavanagh, Myles Jones and Sergio Perkovic — an honor which went to Jones, the Duke midfielder.

Nike/Lacrosse Magazine preseason No. 1 Notre Dame has a trio on this list. Kavanagh went fifth overall to the Denver Outlaws in last month's Major League Lacrosse draft. Midfielder Sergio Perkovic hasn't met a final four he hasn't liked with big performances in each of the last two. Defenseman Matt Landis is the reigning USILA Defenseman of the Year.
