Jarrell Miller leaves UConn

Looks like the riddle of the mystery player leaving the program has been answered. It's Jarrell Miller, who cited personal reasons for his departure. Here's a few more notes and updates sent out via a UConn email earlier this afternoon: an odd maneuver we rarely see. Miller's departure is snuck in at the end. News on Aaron Bagsby smarts, too.

STORRS , Conn. (July 30, 2008) --- The University of Connecticut football team will open practice for the 2008 season on Friday, August 1. As the Huskies enter preseason camp, the following is an update on the Husky roster.

* Redshirt junior defensive tackle Brandon Dillon (Rochester, N.Y.) has been enrolled at the University during the summer sessions and is eligible to participate. He played in ten games last season, but was not enrolled in school during the spring semester.

* Redshirt freshman safety Aaron Bagsby (Henderson, Nev.) will undergo knee surgery on Thursday, July 31 and will not participate in preseason drills. He played in the season-opener last year against Duke and missed the rest of the year with an injury.

* Redshirt sophomore defensive end Mike Cox (West Hempstead, N.Y.) will see limited practice time in preseason camp and is still recovering from a knee injury that kept him out of spring practice.

* Defensive tackle Jarrell Miller (Richmond, Va.) has left the University and football program for personal reasons.
