by Categorized: Mailbag Tagged: , Date:


Q: Looks like two recruits have backed out since the new coach was hired.  (Looking at ESPN’s recruiting list).  Any idea why?  Any thoughts as to what kind of recruiting class they can put together at his time? – Dave, Rocky Hill

 A: Recruits back out.all the time for all kinds of reasons from coaching change, system change to change of heart to any number of things. In the end I’m just not sure it matters why you’re not there. These things happen all the time, Dave. I think what programs and coaches try to do is concern themselves with  players who want to play for the school first and are committed to doing that. Anyway,I think the class has nine it right now. There are some nice players in it. Let’s see if UConn can get a few more. Always available.
