If Edsall falters, we gotta grab this guy.

Tyler Bowen is another to keep an eye on. May be from Georgia, but has been in the northeast for a while now. Very interconnected with previous UConn staff members, though his move to Jax may make it prohibitive. But he is a future head coach.

Maryland (2011–2012) - Graduate assistant
Towson (2013) - Tight ends coach
Penn State (2014) - Offensive graduate assistant

UConn DB Commit Kaleb Anthony

Have to think this guy has been very underrated. Noticed 247 gave him a 77 rating but his composite is over 80. Recruit Georgia has very good things to say about him much like a Desmond Fogle from last year.

Yep, I think Fogle from 2020 and Anthony from the 2021 class have significant upside potential over their "ratings."

A little surprise here... reclassed to from Class of 2022 to Class of 2021:

Rewatched his tape and guess I didn't appreciate it the first time because of the physical size difference of his comp. But his quickness off the snap at DE is actually pretty impressive for a guy that size. It just seemed to stand out more there. Really may have something here on the OLine.

Stash him for a year for conditioning/strength training. Let him sit and learn, then let the manchild loose....
