Edsall's tweet for the Tyler P commit had only 9 blue/white circles and 9 100s. Same number as when Hardy committed. Walker may already be off of Edsall's list.
I don't think there is any rhyme or reason for the number of Blue/White or 100 emojis. The commit tweet sent out when Chris Johnson committed had 9 as well. A few of them have had that number now that i am looking back on it.Edsall's tweet for the Tyler P commit had only 9 blue/white circles and 9 100s. Same number as when Hardy committed.

Ya, seems like that's just Randy having fun with circles.I don't think there is any rhyme or reason for the number of Blue/White or 100 emojis. The commit tweet sent out when Chris Johnson committed had 9 as well. A few of them have had that number now that i am looking back on it.
About a month ago...I wish RE would come out and finally publicly embrace independence.
He went to great lengths to avoid the question last year, to the extent it was clear he disapproved. That in itself did not send a good message to potential recruits.
Given their seeming initial recruiting uptick, now would be a great time to extol the benefits of independence. Highlighting the ability to attract higher impact players that want to play the likes of Clemson, Ole Miss etc.
I stand corrected.About a month ago...
>>UConn’s new TV deal for football, combined with the robust schedules assembled for the next five years, will provide the selling points coach Randy Edsall needs to kick-start recruiting.
“This is a really good day for us,” Edsall said in a conference call with reporters Monday, as the four-year agreement with CBS Sports was announced, “and it came at the right time because we’re right in the middle of recruiting kids from the 2021 cycle.”<<
>>“There’s no question,” he said. “Myself and our coaching staff, we really sat down and talked a lot about what is going to be our message and how are we going to market what we’re doing. By telling them, ‘Hey, we felt good about the television package’ and by telling them about the schedule we were playing, and how we’re going to play more Power Five [conference] teams now than what we would have staying where we were previously, that made a big impact with the kids we were talking to. So that helped us tremendously, and we’ve seen tremendous interest. ... Do we have a challenge ahead of us? Yes, we do. But we have an ability to go out and sell things to get the kind of kids we need to win."<<
>>“David and I had talked way back in June, who do you think we should play?” Edsall said. “Who would be good for our program? We said, ‘Here’s who we’d like to play because of recruiting.’ We were able to really stick to those guidelines and craft schedules that will really aid us from a recruiting standpoint, having kids here and their families seeing them and also going to places where they can get to.”<<
