Inside Lacrosse rates Vickrey as a four-star recruit in the Class of 2022.
"At Notre Dame, you are truly getting the best of both worlds in the classroom and on the field. It is the most beautiful campus in the world. When walking around, I knew this was the place for me. Every building is designed with the same brick, almost taking me back in history, while having a modern inside," Vickrey said. "Everything is also on campus and is easily accessible by walking, making walking from classes to my dorm to practice easy. I also believe the culture of Notre Dame will fit me perfectly. I currently go to Culver Military Academy, which is thirty-five minutes away from Notre Dame. Having that convenience of still being close to Culver is also excellent."
Vickrey plays club lacrosse with Iron Horse. He was also considering Brown, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins.
Vickrey earned several all-star honors, including at the Showtime and T99 events. honors last season. He also earned a spot on the Under Armour Underclass team and is a Main Stage and Juniors Open invitee.
"My advice to future recruits would be to figure out what you want in a college before September 1st. Find out if you want a small or large college or the location of the school. Even what you want to major in comes into play when deciding," Vickrey said of his top takeaway from his recruiting process. "There is a possibility that the college does not have what you want to major in. Knowing what you want will make choosing a college a lot easier."
“I would like to thank God, my family, Culver, and all my coaches and friends for supporting me through this process,” Vickrey added. “Another thank you would be to the Notre Dame staff including Coach Wellner and Coach Corrigan for the opportunity to become an Irishman! Go Irish!”
Vickrey is the fifth player reported to LaxRecords.com to have committed to Notre Dame and the first goalie. The Irish currently lists four goalies on its roster, with one senior, one junior, one sophomore, and a freshman. They also have a commit from Class of 2021 goalie Alex Zepf (Chaminade).
