For the second year in a row, UConn Football's recruiting class is ranked below an FCS program (per 247). On top of that, Huskies currently have 20+ players in the NCAA Transfer Portal.

The transition to FCS is already underway.

Eh, I wouldnt say its fallen apart. We lost 2 players and we gained 2, but they wont count since they are transfer players. Anytime you can pick up former Oregon and USC players, its not a bad thing.

We are expecting to sign a small class and hit the transfer portal hard. I expect because of this our class will be small, and therefore lower ranked. Rumor has it we may get up to 15 players from transfer.

I believe we have lost more than two. Since CCS and Co. were let go we have lost:

Tate Rodemaker to FSU (We were going to lose him anyway regardless)
Ocala Trinity OT Miller Merriweather-Lewis (It's not clear where he is going)
Plantation American Heritage OG Khristopher Love (maryland)
Pahokee LB Frankie Burgess (Maryland maybe)
Lake City Columbia WR Marquez Bell (Probably Indiana)

That all said, I would rather see Jeff Scott bring in his own guys so I don't think we should worry about it.

If my choice at season's end was to A) Keep CCS and retain the Class or B) bring in a new staff and lose this class.....I think we would all mostly take option B.

It's not real clear if East Los Angeles DT JT Tuitupou is still coming but he just visited SJSU on Sunday so I wouldn't be surprised to see him gone.

Do you think he's going to be able to salvage the class?

Salvage? From a recruiting rankings point of view, this is not going to be a good class. But even if CCS had stayed, I don't think it was going to be that good of a class.

I am not really looking to much at CCS's recruits.

Right now it seems Jeff Scott personally recruited:

WR Omarion Dollison South Carolina Gray Academy Small 3 star track guy

Oregon Xfer RB Darrien Felix Former 3 star out of Ft Myers. Another speed guy (3 years of eligibility, red-shirted last year due to injury so should be immediately eligible, played in 9 games for Oregon as a true freshman)

South Carolina Xfer RB Lavonte Valentine 3 Star Track guy out of Melbourne (Looks like he has 3 years of eligibility)

North Carolina Xfer QB Cade Fortin from Georgia, played in 4 games in 2018. Has 3 years of eligibility. High 3/low 4 star guy.

It also looks like to me that USF will sign in February, Dollison's QB Hunter Helms, 3 star from SC. He just got an offer and has a visit lined up in January.

In that small sample size, it appears Scott is going for Speed at the skill positions and accuracy from the QBs. We will see, I imagine we will know a lot more by February.

It will be above average for AAC by quality(average ranking) but not quantity(overall ranking).

Average ranking we are still 5th. That is above Tulane, ECU, Temple, ucf, Tulsa, Navy, and Uconn.

That is according to 247.

According to Rivals, we have the second best average ranking in conference.

Jesus is coming uptown! OLB Jesus Machado that is.

Supposedly the main recent interests were Miami, Utah, Kansas.

Bama offered him in 8th/9th grade and his 247sports page lists an offer from every big time program in the country.

Extra exciting as Tulane fans were pissing and moaning we lost a LB to Vandy in the last couple days....Jesus is rated 2.5 points higher on 247.

Overall a very good signing day for Willie Fritz....lots of med-high 3 stars from Louisiana, the type of talent we've had trouble attracting the couple decades.

Miami fans are having a meltdown he came to Tulane. Looks like we’ll have a top 5 class in the entire G5.

How can this be? According to guys like Quo and Golden Warrior UConn is going to be an Indy Power like Notre Dame and BYU now that they have left the awful teams in the AAC.

Apparently he was not coming to Memphis once Norvell left.

I guess Temple is 2-0 versus us with last minute changes.

Hate to say it, but if I'm a football prospect mulling offers from UConn and Princeton... I'm probably going the Ivy League route.

Why would you hate to say that? I would go to Princeton over any FBS school. The problem is Ivy Leagues don't provide athletic scholarships. Princeton is pretty expensive lol
