Head Football Coach Bob Diaco is already making his presence felt at UConn. With only the first time hosting recruits, HCBD landed (4) four new recruits to a very thin 2014 recruiting class. I am not sure of the talent level but at least one of the recruits, 5'11" 212 lbs. running back Ron Johnson had previously committed to Louisville and backed out. That is a pretty decent catch if you ask me. Not sure about the rest of the talent but at least one scouting service has indicated that 6'5" Sheridan Lawley has the prototype size to make it at the next level.
After the disappointing Jeff Hathaway/PP era I am actually excited for UConn football again. Hopefully we see an uptick in interest from in state standouts. It could be the start of a competitive era at the rent.
