It's time for the class of 2024 to step up to the recruiting plate.
The New England junior golf scene is strong, as highlighted by the number of players that qualified for the U.S. Junior Amateur in 2022 at Bandon Dunes. This crop of high school juniors has some beefy resumes, with junior state titles, high state championships, and New England championships under their belt.
Over the next 10 months, they will be jockeying for position in their state, region and nationally for a coveted slot on a college roster.
One player who has set the pace for this crop of talented golfers is Ryan Downes. He verbally committed to Vanderbilt in October and will be a measuring stick for many of the players we have picked out for this watch list.
