This is an impressive list of offers. Would be a coup if he ever signed with UConn. What are the chances?

West Virginia folks think that they will get him. They have had two visits this year (one last year).

But with Penn State (visited) offering, it may be tough.

Getting kind of late in the game so UConn needs to get him to visit to be in the mix, IMHO.

Huskies have offer out to Eric Young of Pine Forest High in Pensacola.

Named to the Pensacola News Journal Super Senior top 16 list. List, as its name implies, only includes seniors but he will be playing against D1 talent every week.

UConn was his first offer - doesn’t appear he has picked up any others since. Be interesting to see if they start to percolate.
My bad... thought I posted this. Must have gotten distracted by Uconn Baseball postings:


Eric Young is a 5-10 170lb RB/WR from Pine Forest High School in Pensacola Florida

If you look at the list of players, Young's QB is a dual threat QB with offers from Navy, Stetson and D2 West Florida (Beaudry's old school).

Pine Forest also has another WR, Von Hill, with a bunch of P5 offers.


In other words, don't expect Young to have massive numbers at the end of the season. Plenty of talent on that Pine Forest team.

Pine Forest also has a DB who has committed to UAB, so the WR's will have plenty of high level practice competition.

Maybe I am wrong ...

Sometimes when you see a UCONN level Offer (and there are comparables) without the number of FCS and other G5 programs, I start thinking the kid has committed or is just gone radio silent. (the POP he shows up on an Official Visit in December) That is one way to not rise in rankings - but maybe that doesn't matter to one kid or another.

Yep. Some kids chase offer numbers, others are content laying low with what they have.

I was pointing out for those who only see HS numbers come signing day, his numbers won't pop out even though he has talent. Also interesting UConn is recruiting him as an RB/SB/Athlete whereas he is playing WR in high school.

Looks like Randy meant to send this as a DM
This is what prompted the conversation... (click on his player card):

>>Joshua Pierre-Louis has an offer from Auburn.

Benjamin’s Joshua Pierre-Louis has offers from Auburn, UConn and NC State.

He had two interceptions, a safety and a fumble recovery as a junior. He also plays running back.<<

Appears JPL committed to RE after a visit this summer but is using it as a safety choice.

Tyree Saunders decommitted from USF. Interesting to me Edsall started following him on Twitter well after he committed to USF. Don’t think he would have done that unless he knew Saunders was very likely to be coming back on the market. Saunders junior tape is strong, real playmaker.

Saunders is a Jacksonville kid - home of Matt Drayton and the FL place Randy and Corey seem to put a lot of effort into.

>>Collin McCarthy, Jackson Memorial, DL, senior: Never heard of Collin McCarthy? You will. At a smidgen below 6-foot-6, attempting to pass in his direction is like throwing over a skyscraper. At 235 pounds -- up 30 from last season -- with an 80-inch wingspan, McCarthy will be able to out-leverage even the finest offensive linemen. Add in speed -- last year against Wall he blocked a punt and outran everyone for a TD that was called back -- and McCarthy has the potential to be one of New Jersey’s most-imposing defensive lineman in 2019. While he played predominately defensive end last year, opponents will need a GPS chip to keep track of him this fall. Jackson Memorial head coach Vin Mistretta said McCarthy, a UConn commit, will play every spot on the defensive line and create nightmarish mismatches. It will also make it more difficult for McCarthy to be double-teamed. Last season, McCarthy had 91 total tackles -- 46 for loss with 11 sacks. His goal for this season is to improve upon those totals.<<

What are the chances he actually enrolls at UConn? It would be remarkable for us to recruit a guy like this, who emerges and grows into a real stud, and have him enroll, make his mark and bring great credibility to UConn. Let us pray he becomes the defensive Orlovsky.

I’m sure some higher profile schools will make a run @ him but considering that he’s a legacy commit and really liked the campus/staff, I think we have a pretty decent chance that he shows up (but as w/ any early commit - until the fax machine spits out the signed NLI in December - nothing is a lock).
