Story on UConn commit Matt Walsh

Thought I would pass on a link to a story in today's Register on UConn commit Matt Walsh and fellow Hand High senior star Pete Gerson, who is headed to Yale.

Hand opens the 2012 season when it hosts Amity on Friday at 7 p.m.

UConn's defense is no longer ranked first among FBS teams in total defense but the Huskies do lead all FBS team with an average of 28.5 rushing yards allowed in the first two games of the season.

UConn is No. 3 nationally in total defense with an average of 158.5 yards per game. TCU, which allowed 70 yards in its only game to date, and Florida State (92 yards per game) rank ahead of the Huskies. UConn also ranks third in first downs allowed, tied for seventh in sacks and ninth in passing defense.

Unfortunately the numbers aren't as positive on the offensive side of the ball. UConn is 104th in total offense (among 120 FBS teams), 103rd in passing efficiency and 105th in rushing offense.
