Maryland men’s lacrosse earned a commitment Monday from class of 2025 five-star midfielder Christopher Alexis.

Alexis, listed at 6-foot and 180 pounds, attends Salisbury School in Connecticut. As a sophomore, he tallied 18 goals, five assists and 15 ground balls in 12 games, helping lead Salisbury to a 14-2 record. He also plays club lacrosse with Sweetlax Florida.

In July, he was in College Park to take part in Main Stage, a lacrosse showcase for the top rising juniors in the country.

According to the National Lacrosse Federation, he was previously ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in his class, but has since slid to No. 19.

Alexis joins midfielder John Offutt and goalie Aidan Seibel, both of whom committed earlier this month, as the Terps’ top commits in the class of 2025.
