Gilman School [Baltimore, MD] senior lacrosse standout Gordie Koerber, who helped lead the Greyhounds to the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship last spring, has committed to play at the University of Denver.
An emerging national power, Denver reached the national semifinals this past spring.
"I had a great time on my visit, and the coaches made me feel very welcome and part of the team," Koerber said Thursday. "They're a great team, and with the success they had last year, I'm grateful to have the chance to be a part of it and build on last year."
As a junior, Koerber scored four goals in Gilman's 13-8 championship victory over Calvert Hall, earning the Greyhounds the area's No. 1 ranking with a 13-5 mark. It was his first year as a starter and second on varsity, and he finished with 31 goals and seven assists.
In July, Koerber was selected to participate in the prestigious Warrior 40 national camp at Harvard, which features the top 40 high school players in the country.
At the time, he said he had gotten only limited interest from Division-I teams, but he held out hope that a major program would recruit him.
Denver finished last season ranked No. 4 in the country with a 15-3 record. The Pioneers had their second straight perfect season in the Eastern College Athletic Conference and also won the inaugural ECAC tournament title.
