UConn had themselves a bad season, finishing 2-10 with wins over UMass and FCS Wagner. In times like this, you'd hope that your program was building towards a winning program. Maybe your team is young and showed potential. Players will continue to get older and more recruits will come in. However, that is not the case for UConn as 19 players have left the program for the transfer portal:
That has to be some form of a record. I can't even think of one team that retained it's coach and saw 19 players leave in one offseason.
On top of that, their recruiting class for 2020 isn't looking too hot either:
You could look at the positive and find that UConn ranks 77th on Rivals:
Or you could look at the fact that Edsall can't keep any instate recruits at home. Of 247Sports top 20 CT recruits for the class of 2020, 0 of them will be playing football for UConn. Randy Edsall's response?
This is literally the definition of recruiting.
Tough times continue for UConn football. Success for the Huskies on the gridiron is a distant memory.
