Welcome looks like great size and speed!!
5 out of 10 commits have 3 stars. Very nice to see us uptrending.
Welcome to the Dog Pound, Quinn!!
I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not.
In case it helps, here's the fraction of 3* according to Rivals by year:
2005 6/25 24%
2006 3/21 14%
2007 6/29 21%
2008 3/22 14%
2009 4/21 19%
2010 9/20 45%
2011 8/16 50%
2012 9/23 39%
2013 5/9 56% (Andreas Knappe not in database)
There is an uptrend, the 2010-2013 classes are consistently higher rated than the earlier classes. The change in coaches may have interrupted recruiting for 2012, the new staff had limited time with this class and it needed to be a big class.
We'll see how 2013 plays out but it could be UConn's highest-rated class ever. I would hope for something like 9/16 this year, then a big year on the field and a resolution of some of the conference uncertainty enabling a 15/20 class in 2014.
BCU preferred Quinton Porter to Dan Orlovsky.
My sincere hope is that GDF and Spaz are allowed to stick around at BC for another 5 years or so. That should give them enough time to put the nails in the coffin, get the hole dug and get the thing in the ground and permanently burried.
If I were a BC poster I would be spending more time contacting BOT members and asking them WTF is gonig on rather than posting on a UCONN board. But, whatever floats your boat.....
No surprise, Quinn the Eskimo likes the Huskies.

Tight end/defensive end Quinn Thompson (Edinboro, Pa./General McLane) committed Thursday to play for the Huskies, the Erie Times-News reports.
"It's a great school with great facilities," he said. "I really like the coaches and I think my biggest opportunity is there for things I want to accomplish. This definitely takes the pressure off and I can focus on my final high school season."
Akron, Boston College, Bowling Green, Buffalo, UMass, Ohio and Temple also extendedscholarship offers to the 6-foot-5, 225-pound prospect.
