Geno: "The recruiting is not as easy as people think. Here’s how I look at it: There are two kinds of kids. Half want to come to UConn."

Geno: "And the other half would rather play any other place but Connecticut."

Geno: "There is growing sentiment now about playing time, individual goals and priorities." #UConnwomen #BleedBlue

Geno: "The great ones know they are good enough that they will be the ones who will determine what their roles we be.” #UConnwomen

Geno's comments almost duplicate a statement (about UNC, when they totally dominated women's soccer), and which I have posted before:

"There are two kinds of [soccer] players: Those that want to play for North Carolina and those who want to beat North Carolina."

Substitute UConn for North Carolina and decisions made by several recent elite recruits become readily understood.

Shhhhh! Don't tell Tonyc that recruiting is not as easy as you think! I think he said something along the lines of "UCONN simply recruits itself..." ;)
