I think many struggle with the idea that it's okay to be disappointed with the recruiting results, but still also have faith that the program will continue to be successful.
Speaking strictly for myself, I just had hoped it would be different and that KO would be able to land a good percentage of his plan-A targets. It just seems that didn't happen with the wings and might not happen at the center position either, unless they land Stone.
One thing that I've wondering the past few weeks, should Ollie have focused a little more on some of the regional talent over trying to land recruits that are outside our region. I'm not saying that UConn shouldn't recruit nationally and globally, but when you aim very high and do so wide reaching, you run the risk of coming up empty, when you might have been able to land some recruits that might not have been quite as good but ones more attainable. With that said, they did land Adams and Enoch, who I think are not just local talent but among the best at their position and a good fit for UConn. It's always hard to tell when certain recruits are no longer on the radar, if it's UConn losing interest in them, or them losing interest in UConn. So it's very likely that the wings and centers that are within our region simply weren't interested in our Huskies. And it's not like UConn is recruiting a whole bunch of top 20 recruits, granted Stone is an elite prospect, but Clark Jones and Mack are ranked between 40 and 70, and not ones you think would be out of reach.
