There is a reason Edsall didn't recruit at Milford Academy. It is a football factory that exists only to get guys with questionable grades up to qualifying standards. The minimum standards to qualify at UConn are quit different and higher than many NCAA schools including some in the BE. Many Milford players would have trouble qualifying at UConn. I guess Pasqualoni doesn't get a couple of free passes for some of his early recruits.

It is only November so unless Dobbs wants to enroll in January he has many months to get his grades or SAT score up. If he really wants UConn there is still time.

I guess the RB woes continue in Huskyland... Not that we're bad off at the position... We do need another IMPACT back... my two cents...

what a cluster. How can this kid screw this one up. His family put out like $25-30 thousand to go to Milford for the semester. How can he not qualify. You go to milford to do two things: get buckled down with grades to get qualified and improve in football. Thats it.

He has to pay? He's not on scholarship?

I don't think the Hargrave or Fork Union fb players pay anything.

Couldn't he do a semester @ a community college then transfer to UConn?

I thought he couldn't meet UConn requirements, not that he didn't qualify per NCAA requirements.

If he went to a cc for the january semester and got b level grades for a semester taking college level classes! Couldn't he then apply to UConn as a transfer student? This kid wants UConn, we should try everything within the rules.

The next person who wastes my time talking about an Ansonia High product going to UConn is getting a pie in the face. Tinney. Kuraczea. Now Dobbs. Enough. Can we only talk about kids coming from high schools that have a chance to get him qualified and remain academically eligible? Ansonia is not such a place.

Fair point. I guess I was thinking if his grades aren't good enough now.....

Dam shame.

huskydan if all the scandals in college sports have taught us anything its that these kids should be students first and athlete second. its not fair to all the kids who have their together to bend rules for some. i respect uconn if its following the right rules. this just sucks hard for us fans, and for montrell, especially since he was a recruit that put in the press about how much love he had for the old state U
