I agree with the QUALITY. numbers of un-trusted players offers Geno nothing. Even tall players without the ability to quickly learn the UConn and post position systems is of no value. (Luckily we have ONO who is intelligent, learns quickly and WANTS to be a great post, those are not a dime a dozen.We all need to get beyond the total numbers of players recruited and focus on quality and fit. If UConn brings in 5 players in the 2020 class, based on history, there is a high probability that at least 2 will be gone by their sophomore season, not to mention the potential to also lose 2019 recruits and the impact such a large class has on 2021 recruiting.
Recruiting is a very delicate balance. If UConn could bring in one solid Big in the class of 2020, that would be good. I certainly don’t want to see another g/w commit until Azzi does for the Class of ‘21.
I'm not so sure the "size of the current class" has great impact on players who want an Nc or to become the best they may be. I'm not sure Geno is the only path to that but certainly he is the only one with so many FF's and NC's.
