Looks like Coach Hilliard might've just put up another bat signal on Twitter. Wonder who just committed???? (maybe that JUCO DB potentially???)

honest question - how do you assess your excitement for a recruit beyond height/weight, when they have an offer list like this young man? Game film is always taken with a grain of salt as the competition isn't FBS recruits, it's mostly just average teenage boys.

It is very easy for me to say "offer list sucks - he must suck", but i mean is there not a valid reason he doesn't have more solid FBS offers? I am genuinely trying to see beyond the concerning offer list, but it sticks out hard when i see these types of commits. we've had these my entire time as a fan, and the results on the field have been.....well you're all watching the games too lol.

or maybe i should just shut up and celebrate no matter what.

Prime reason he’s doing a PG year @ Hun (it’s not academics) - be interested to see what other offers he picks up after a year there. Not all recruits are plug and play especially offensive linemen out of high school… I think Sammis gets the benefit of the doubt here:

Generally, OL recruiting is an art not a science. Many OL kids are not well developed and you have to project where they will be over time. Most P4 schools will look for more developed OL prospects and they don't recruit kids that may need 2 years of development especially in the portal era where the top P4 schools can either recruit a highly developed player or find one in the portal.

RSS could be the sweet spot for UConn OL. 2 solid years to get bigger/stronger and learn, play some to show out (or if really solid start attracting P4 looks). Hope we get more "action" from good prospects who know need time to grow into themselves and see UConn as good fit. What's down side, if so good people will notice quick, if only so/so you came to right school to hopefully improve.

Not like P2 schools wouldn't have looked at a couple of 2023 UConn OL guys to poach.
