Syracuse men’s lacrosse adds Utah transfer, plus John Desko gets Hall of Fame call

As the Syracuse Orange men’s lacrosse team looks to reload for a non-interrupted run at a national title in 2021, they’ve added another piece on the defensive end.

Late last night, TNIAAM alum Chris Jastrzembski reported that Utah defenseman Nick Hapney is transferring to SU.

Hapney started 17 of 18 games in his two years playing for the Utes, finishing 2020 with eight ground balls and eight caused turnovers in six games.

The 6-foot-3, 205 pound native of Towson, Md. becomes the second defender added via transfer this offseason for Syracuse, joining Mitch Wykoff who comes over from D-III Gettysburg.
