UConn Adds Three Verbal Commitments After Big Official Visit Weekend


UConn Football likes to get its commitments in batches. The staff had high hopes for this past weekend, with 12 prospects in Storrs for an official visit.

After earning five commitments from the last big weekend visit, the Huskies have added three verbal commitments to bring their total to 17 for the class of 2016.

Many of those 12 visitors were already verbally committed to the Huskies: Jay Rose, Eddie Hahn, Keyion Dixon, Tahj Herring, Donovan Williams, Quayvon Skanes, Tyler Coyle, Ryan Gilmartin and Nino Leone had announced verbal commitments at some point between June and December of 2015. All of them re-affirmed their commitments this weekend.

UConn had three other visitors who were uncommitted or committed elsewhere. All three committed to UConn.

Nick Zecchino is an athlete prospect who is also a long snapper, and hails from Cedar Grove, New Jersey, which is head coach Bob Diaco's hometown. He became the 15th verbal commitment for UConn Sunday morning after the visit.



The 16th member of the class is Noel Brouse, a defensive lineman from Pennsylvania. Brouse had originally committed to Syracuse in the summer of 2015, but decommitted after the removal of head coach Scott Schafer. He committed to Villanova afterwards, but it was short-lived as he made a visit to UConn one week later and is now verbally committed to the Huskies.

Brett Graham a punter/tight end from State College, PA, is the final commitment for UConn on the weekend.

UConn Report will be getting in touch with all three for detailed conversations about their decision and recruiting process.
