The Class of 2021 face-off midfielder scored 30 points last season on 15 goals and 15 assists. He won 84.03 of his faceoff opportunities last season and has 419 wins in his career heading into his junior year.
Lauderback plays club lacrosse with Juiced Cherries. He was also considering Maryland, Towson and Ohio State.
"I chose the University of Michigan because I wanted to make sure I liked and could trust the coaches that I would be committing my future to," Lauderback said. "I could not have been happier to stay home and only be twenty minutes away from where I grew up."
Lauderback earned Second Team All-State honors last season. He also earned KLAA Conference Scholar athlete honors.
"The most important thing I learned during the recruiting process is that it really isn’t about lacrosse, it is about finding a school that you will fit in at and I think I have done so," Lauderback added. "One thing I would tell a recruit is that coaches will not make a decision based on one’s game performance no matter how good or bad you may have performed. It is all effort and hustle."
Lauderback is the eighth player reported to LaxRecords.com to have committed to Michigan.
