The Charlotte Hounds selected Providence College Defenseman James Barclay with the 57th overall selection (3rd Round, 7th Pick) in the 2018 Major League Lacrosse Draft.
With the 57th overall pick in the @MLL_Lacrosse draft, the Hounds select James Barclay!

The Senior from Toronto, has been a part of the stellar defensive unit for the Friars these past couple of seasons, spurring the team to their first ever Big East Championship game in the process.
Barclay now makes it three Friars selected in the last 5 years of the Major League Lacrosse Draft following Jarrod Neumann last year (2017) and Andrew Barton in 2014. The other Friar to be selected in the MLL Draft was Brian O’Rourke back in 2005, albeit in the supplemental draft. There’s no doubt in my mind that Tate Boyce will make it three years in a row with a Friar being selected by an MLL team come next year.
