You could say UConn fans instead of being passive aggressive about it but it's not good look to attack someone on their own board. Most of them don't post over here since the general board was created to separate UConn topics from non-UConn topics.
I think the known list of '21 players with S.C. interest are Fudd, Rivers, Feagin, Key, Raven Johnson, Bree Hall and Philly guard Destiny McPhaul.
we may or may not be involved with Hollingshead (Ga player at position of need) but I do not think there has been any report of mutual interest.
we'd be shocked as anyone if it was Fudd, I think.
One or more could be 2022s (Instates Ashlyn Watkins or Talaysia Cooper?) and I guess it's possible a transfer for depth could be one, though I have no clue who that would be. But those are usually a surprise.
I would actually like to see a graduate transfer big - someone who could play immediately next season - come in for 2020-21, to provide some depth behind Boston. We'll also have 6-4 Amihere, and I imagine either 6-2 Grissett or 6-2 Saxton will take Herbert-Harrigan's spot at the 4, and both are as capable rebounders as Kiki was, and may even be more consistent. So with Boston and Grissett/Saxton at the 5 and 4, and Amihere and Grissett/Saxton providing support at both positions, we should be fine. But depth is always a good thing I guess.
I also agree on a possible 2022 commit, but Coach Staley hasn't had the track record of taking commits way early in the process. So if this is the case, then this Coach must truly love this kid.
If all 4 probable commits Dawn's been tweeting about for 2021 are part of the 2021 cycle - and no one transfers out - then her program could conceivably have 12 former 5* players on it for 2021-22:
Commit #1 (Fr.)
Commit #2 (Fr.)
Commit #3 (Fr.)
Commit #4 (Fr.)
That's crazy. Has there been a WBB program that has had that before?
what about Jillian Hollingshead? are both Key and Feagin that much better then her?
Yeah she seems to be a little bit of a mystery. Has she put out a listing of top schools yet?Sorrry, I know the least about Hollingshead.
I'd like to see her side by side with the other two or see some AAU footage.
my impression is that she's bigger than Feagin and Key and more of a 5 with good range than a 4/3. That's not how Dan Olson seems to see her though.
I will tell you for a fact (as someone who played sports for several years) a player or recruit will be drawn to a coach who defends her players and their program. If you think Dawn being upset about that is negative ? Then you are not living in the real world !I read that Business Insider article a couple weeks ago and was shocked, to say the least. Disgusting behavior, regardless of what team you root for. To a lesser degree, Dawn Staley's stoking the fires certainly didnt help the cause. And why, for what? Because the author did not include a South Carolina player in her article of top players for the 2020 tourney. Wow, not a good look for yall.
Actually, it is true-look at the roster that Jodie Wynn inherited, completely void of any talent. McDonald, Melgoza transferred, Romero had transferred in from the Yori situation at Nebraska and did not play her senior year. The other 2/3 that you mentioned, I can't find any meaningful stats so not sure I agree on "talent". He left the program bare. If you want to give him credit for keeping McGuff's recruits, go at it but he simply did not build that program. I will say he does seem to be doing a better job at Arkansas than he did at Washington and much better than Dykes ever did.This is just not true, but keep on flogging it. He recruited and then re-recruited Plum, who only stayed because Neighbors was hired. He recruited McDonald, Melgoza, Garcia, Kierra Collier, Romeo, and Strother. Injuries ruined some of their careers, and some transferred away after he left, but to say he recruited no talent is just untrue.

This recruiting thread has gone downhill fast. May be time to start over with a clean slate in the near future
Hadn’t this been expected? I thought I read somewhere that Tennessee felt pretty good about landing her. Regardless great recruit. Congratulations.
