>>Stapleton is a rare local loss for Syracuse, which has cleaned up in New York City since local product Doug Marrone took over the program. He liked Syracuse, but nothing like UConn.Stapleton felt at home on the Storrs, Conn. campus and was in awe of the facilities, which he described as “beautiful.” One coach, who he didn’t name, said it was superior to many of the NFL franchises the coach has worked with.“UConn has it right now,” Stapleton said.<<

Cue redundancy joke here.
Wait -- I'm not the only one who does that?
One of the big things that helped Stapleton decide was Uconn's dominance over Syacuse and Temple, he's noted that the last time the Cuse beat Uconn was in 2006.
Really happy this kid picked Uconn
First off ... Welcome Cameron!!!
Next ... I think you guys are missing sportart's point. What a recruit says tells you a lot about their work ethic and level of commitment. If a recruit publicly wavers before signing day in hopes of receiving a better offer ... what if that offer never comes? Will he be disappointed he had to "settle" for UCONN? This is not a video game where you plug in players with ratings. These guys put in a lot of long hours in season and off season to prepare their bodies and minds for a pretty brutal sport. I'd rather have players with fewer stars and bigger hearts.
GREAT CATCH! WELCOME!
Cam is from Staten Island(the Rock), the same neighborhood that #43 on our roster is from, good look for the 718.
He comes from a good family, very strict up bringing.
He is a gentleman, and a scholar, very good grades, and just as important is a high character guy.
It says nothing about his work ethic. How did you come up with that?
Separate names with a comma.
