Utah Lands Recruit from Connecticut

JT Redd

Utah has received a verbal commitment from JT Redd, a midfielder from Brookfield, Connecticut.
“I chose the University of Utah given the strength of its business program, the Wasatch’s deep powder, and the opportunity to play lacrosse at a high level,” said Redd. “Also, my father is an alumni of the U (84) and played club rugby, and my sister, Caroline Redd, is currently a sophomore. The University’s lacrosse program is on the rise and poised to become one of the top MCLA teams in the country. Having visited the U last fall, I found the coaching staff’s attitude towards the player’s college experience balanced and positive. I greatly look forward to working with the team next season, and making every contribution possible to help them win a bunch of games.”
“I’m thrilled JT will be a Ute next year,” said Utah Head Coach Rick Kladis. “He’s a well rounded player who can play offense, defense and take draws so he will be an impact player right away for us next season. We already have a terrific young group coming in next year and JT will be a big part of it. I think JT recognized on his visit that Utah is a great fit for him because two of his favorite things are skiing and playing lacrosse. Here he can do both those things at a quality level and I think he’s set for a fantastic college experience.”
Redd began playing lacrosse in the 2nd grade.
“Wearing a helmet and pads, while carrying a stick to whack people seemed preferable to standing around a field with a baseball mitt,” said Redd. “I have a passion for this intense, high speed team sport. I started playing on club summer teams in 5th grade, and enjoyed playing against teams from all over the country.”
Redd was also considering Stevens Institute of Technology, Connecticut College, Washington and Lee University, Oberlin College, Wheaton College and Clark University. During the off-season, Redd played for the Westchester Predators alongside commits to Duke, Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, UPenn and Brown. Redd also captained the Brookfield box lacrosse team to a second place finish in the Connecticut box league.
Redd will finish out his senior season for the Bobcats while chasing a Connecticut state championship.
