has some news...
care to elaborate?
In- state FB/LB (6'1" 220 lbs) from Daniel Hand in Madison just received a UConn offer and will visit this weekend. Very likely to commit.
Do you know his name. Other offers etc. thanks
I hope he projects as a LB; we seem to be cornering the market on FBs
There has to be a joke here with someone coming from Hand H.S. in the aftermath of our discussion on how you pronounce Fuchs. But for the life of me I can't think of it.
I'm sure it also involves Jessica Alba
Did you already forget the title of the thread you clicked on?
Thanks for the video. that's a strong kid. hard to tell if he has the speed for LB at this level, but I could see him opening up some holes at FB.

#UConnFootball has just received a commitment from Matt Walsh, a 6-1. 230 pound fullback from Daniel Hand High in Madison, CT
fuchs is next!!!! get em p!!!
It seems like we could've gotten this kid the day before signing day. Why the rush?
Here's a pretty good follow on Twitter or Facebook.
“@CTHSFootball: Hand Sr. FB/LB Matt Walsh, committed to UConn today (via @KenDavis55) #whoswhoin2012 #ctfb... http://t.co/AqnZrbIo”
If the staff knew they wanted him now, why wait?
OK, but I'm not seeing that he has any other D1 interest, never mind offers. Is this the highest kid on their board at his position right now? Hard to believe.
Rennick Bryan, Richard Levy and Guttierez, weren't on anyone's board either and all three look like players. If you wait and someone else starts showing him interest you can lose out. I think we should just have faith in the coaches...at least for another month.
it looks like there will be more player turnover with P then we had in the past. P leaves no rock unturned, personally I think that is a good thing.
bryan had a temple offer
gutz had a kansas offer
levy was under the radar in nj
i think this one could have waited a bit also, i have the same feeling with 2 of our cb commits(lucas and summers). i assume they all did great at uconn camp. i'm routing for them just liek any other uconn player, i dont hate. but i have seen us take good steps up in recritng this year so far but considering the offers we still have out i would have liked to wait on these kids a bit. but im not P and i will never be. in P i trust until he gives me enough of a reason not to!
edit also- bryan wanted uconn and used temple as a saftey type deal. he didn't go to camps and stuff outside of uconn. he was a lock and all he wanted was a uconn offer. he didn't care about ofther schools or recriut stars. i wonder if walsh is the same. if bryan went to psu/bc/cuse/pitt/ruty camps and stuff, he would have got a couple offers. fwiw
I have no idea how this kid will play out, but we have 4-6 FBs on the roster (depends on what you do w/Clax and Vinci) and while one graduates that kid will likely never see the field. Do we need this many FBs?
I like this kid. Saw him play a few times. He has a great motor and can play on either side of the ball. If anything he has versatility, adds depth, and will help on special teams and the scout teams.
