    UConn advantages as a school (outside of hockey) gives it a huge recruiting advantage. This will play out for the men's team as well.

    Agreed, especially in the Olympic sports.

    Highly unlikely. The best players come from the Ontario's Provincial Women's Hockey League (PWHL), American junior teams or prep schools. With the exception of a few leagues in Minnesota, top players rarely come directly from high schools. Wisconsin is a traditional power in NCAA women's hockey. You can be sure that they'd be all over one of the nation's top players in their own backyard. Based on her other offers and the fact that she's been invited to some USA Hockey player development camps (top 100-150 or so American prospects) it's more likely she has potential and is a good prospect, but not in the elite tier.
