University of Southern California Considering Adding Varsity Men's Lacrosse

Will NCAA Division I men's lacrosse stretch from coast to coast in the not too distant future? Perhaps.

The University of Southern California is considering adding a varsity men's lacrosse program, according to a USC athletic department official who spoke with LaxMagazine.com, although no decision has been made nor has a timetable been established for making a decision.

"We're exploring the opportunity for men's lacrosse internally," said USC senior associate athletic director Mark Jackson, who oversaw the addition of the new USC women's varsity program announced in November.

"We recognize how fast the sport is growing, and the popularity from youth lacrosse all the way up," Jackson said. "It's something we're really cognizant of. We launched women's lacrosse, and hopefully men's lacrosse is somewhere in our future."
