So its seems to be down to UConn, Pitt and UGA. The choice is obvious here - UConn. We have the playing time and an OC that wants to feed you the ball!

Yeah, dude had an explosive tape for a DE. For 36 hours it seemed like we had a 20% chance and then Oregon crushed it and now this...
It's the normal flow w/ JUCOs/Grad Transfers. As the early signing period gets closer, P5 go through their boards and look where the holes are and begin to hedge their bets. P5 is the pot of gold for a lot of these kids - they will wait for the commit pecking order to get to them and then choose. The only thing UConn can continue to do is get their interest out and wait for their turn (... and often by the time it gets to us, the JUCO/Grad field has been harvested pretty good).

If Mike Locksley is in at Maryland I wonder if that has repercussions for Summers’ commitment. We should show up to his state championship game Saturday for support.

Medic and others closer to this stuff —-

Is it me or have we gone radio silent in our recruiting? Few offers being discussed or posted while we know they are out there scouting for talent. Usually by now u have a good sense of who’s in for December. Other than maybe 1/2 dozen “commits” there’s been little from the staff to have a sense of what next 2 months could bring.

Every year we miss on recruiting, adds another year to “the 5 year plan”. Hopefully, we can start to turn things around now, although there is no current public evidence that’s the case.

It’s the same old thing. Edsall is operating without giving the recruiting services any info. And the services aren’t covering us anyway.

There is plenty of activity happening outside of any coverage. This will be a 20 person class by Feb and I think there is good chance it’s a better class than last year. Faster.
