Ray Reid in soccer circles is well known for his international recruiting, and not just kids from Africa. In the past he has also gotten a fair number of kids from Canada, the Caribbean, and from Europe as well. Still, I'm wondering if UConn's new soccer facility will change this some. A modern soccer facility with all the usual desirable bells and whistles may make UConn soccer more attractive to soccer kids in this country, thus making the need to bring in international kids not as high a priority. As in all things, we'll see if this ends up being so.
Not at all. It just doesn’t bode well for American College Soccer. The best Americans simply don’t play college soccer anymore.They turn pro as soon as they can. NCAA soccer is a pretty watered down product these days.
This feels like assistant coach miller is trying to go for the quick fix here with so many transfers. I don't like this strategy one bit, not a recipe for future success. UConn needs more top US academy players or else they will continue to fall behind
On paper, looks to be a good kid. I wish him well and that he can take advantage of this opportunity on an off the field.
That said, Reid has appeared to prefer foreign players over locals since he was coaching at SCSU to a degree that the rumor mill back when I was playing soccer in Connecticut in High School was that if one was a local not to even bother thinking about playing for SCSU. What's funny is that Miller is noted in this clip and not Reid at all.
