I can't think of any reason on the surface that UConn would lose interest in Brunelle. Unless they just like others (Amihere, Jones) more and are really confident they can get them? I dunno.

It doesn't seem like Geno's style to leave a recruit with an offer hanging....if he wanted to rescind the offer I'm sure he would tell the recruit why....the only way would be if she told UConn she was no longer interested..

I would laugh IF after all this indication that Brunelle is going to ND that she ends up picking UCONN. But on a serious note, I will wish her the best of luck wherever she chooses to go. It does make sense though that with Turner, Shepard, Mabrey, and Ogunbowale departing after next season, there's a strong case that ND would be a right fit for her

I did a quick update of the names we have as being recruited by UConn. This page is a work in progress. I just uploaded screen shots of my Excel worksheet since so many people don't have Google accounts and can't access Google docs. So, this is a very preliminary page BUT I did want to get the info out there.

Is there any interest in Kamilla Cardosa ? I'm just curious.

No documented UCONN interest so far. I think I'm the only one that has been trying to get UCONN interested. Cardosa is only a Sophomore and recently played a couple of games on ESPN. Lots of size and fairly mobile post, but lacking strength, polish, and technique in the post to dominate like her size would dictate. At this point don't see a good reason for UCONN to get in this mix especially with Brink & Marshall in that class-2020 and Deberry a year later in 2021.

April 11 is the National Letter of Intent early signing day.

If UConn's back to back semi-final losses have had an impact on recruiting, it may show up then.

I know Williams and ONO were last-minute additions for the 2018 class but it would sure feel good to wrap up some 2019 players early.

I thought April 11 was the beginning of the "late" signing period for the 2018 kids. I don't think 2019 kids can sign until November 2018. But they can verbal at any time.

The ND Insider reported that Brunelle said that UConn DID give her an offer. She said the report in the Courant that UConn never extended an offer was not correct.

"Brunelle’s competitive edge could have been tested Sunday, when shortly after her commitment announcement, a report in the Hartford Courant, citing unnamed sources, claimed the Huskies hadn’t offered Brunelle a scholarship.

That was news to Brunelle, who last visited UConn in December.

“They did offer me. I went on a visit (in 2016) and sat with (head coach) Geno (Auriemma), and he told me,” Brunelle said. “That’s false information.”"

At the risk of sounding negative, why is it that most recruits we don't get are positioned as having been passed on by Geno? This appears to be a clear case of a recruit passing on UConn. It does happen. ;)
from what I understand about UConn recruiting, there are very few recruits who check all of the boxes each year....perhaps somewhere under 10...out of that number he hopes to pick up 2-4 per class....so you could say that UConn doesn't even consider the vast majority of DI recruits and out of the very few some say yes and a very few don't.

I don’t understand uconn’s failure to recruit a center for sooo long. Trying to get by with a 5-11 playing center was fascinating but not realistic. Not having a big puts tremendous pressure on the entire defense trying to cover the lane...you must double which always leaves someone open.

Clearly one of the great mysteries of life.if UConn doesn't get Jones it goes from mystery to mistakes..
Just a question
Since UConn lost contact with SB early in 2018 according to some here (DOLPHAN) would the fact we went after EZI Macbegor in that time frame. Might there be some connection between these 2 events?

I wouldn't think so as they play different positions plus the odds of getting Ezi were never that great anyway..
