"I chose Fairfield because of the relationship that I built with the new coaching staff, especially Coach Gibson, during the recruiting process. My campus visit was great with the players and coaches," Adornato said. "I feel very confident in new Head Coach Baxter, using his experience from Yale, building a strong program. The beautiful suburban campus, the location and academics were exactly what I was looking for in a school."
The midfielder earned all-star honors at the NXT Philly Showcase, Battle of Baltimore and Orange Crush Showcase.
Adornato plays club lacrosse with Upstate Lacrosse Club. He was also considering Bucknell, Manhattan, and Dartmouth.
"The recruiting process is a big wave that builds momentum from hard work and consistency. There are ups and downs. Always be prepared and in shape to play so you can make the plays that catch a coach's attention," Adornato said of his top takeaway from his recruiting process. "You will need help from others such as your parents and high school coach. Don't be afraid to ask for it and use as much help as possible. If you stay the course and be patient, the big wave will land you at your correct destination."
"I could not have reached this point in my lacrosse career without the timeless hours of my parents driving me around the country. I am very thankful for my parents," Adornato added. "Lastly, I am very grateful to Coach Beardsley for pushing me to become a better player and invaluable help during the recruiting process."
Adornato is the fifth player in the Class of 2021 reported to LaxRecords.com to have committed to Fairfield.
