While Ray Reid has been in charge, UConn men's soccer has never done much of anything to publicize their recruiting signings. The team never issues press releases on who is joining the team. That may be changing a little bit, as I just noticed that the UConn men's twitter feed has announced a few new players to the team for this fall. I don't recall them ever doing that before.

Seems like a great class. Let's hope this is a solid bounce back year for Reid. If not I hope we go hard at Caleb Porter

I miss the days when Morrone could win a national championship with all U.S. players. I know that we need a few internationals, but this strikes me as perhaps too many. UConn should be an attractive place to play. Are we struggling to recruit Americans?

UConn Men’s Soccer Program Signs Four to Class of 2023 - UConn Huskies | University of Connecticut Athletics

I never imagined that Ray Reid would ever actually put out a press release on recruits that were joining the soccer program. And on signing day yet. His lack of publicity on recruits was something I would complain about often. The times they are a changing. No doubt UConn will also bring in a number of international players like they always do.
Nice, our new stadium paying off already?

This is an old post but it seems like college soccer rosters everywhere are populated heavily with Internationals. Cast off European Academy kids are still a cut above your average top American recruit.

Seems like we are heavy on the African kids. Doesn’t bode well for American soccer really.
