Busy week for UConn recruits

Seven of the 23 recruits who signed with UConn in February will be taking part in high school all-star games over the next five days.

It begins tomorrow when quarterback Richard Lagow, who threw for nearly 2,000 yards as a senior at Plano (Tex.) High, plays for the East squad in the North Texas East/West Classic at 7:30 Pennington Field in Bedford, Tex.

Three future Huskies (linebacker Chris Britton, defensive end Junior Joseph and receiver Brian Lemelle) will be suiting up for the Pennsylvania squad playing in the Big 33 Classic at HersheyPark Stadium tomorrow night at 7 p.m.

The game will air live on NFL Network. Britton will wear No. 33, Joseph will wear No. 45 while Lemelle will wear No. 7.

Defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi, receiver/tight end Jordan Fuchs and defensive end Cameron Stapleton will play for the New York squad in the Empire Challenge on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Hofstra's Shuart Stadium.. The game will air live on MSG Varsity. Fatukasi, Fuchs and Stapleton will wear numbers 93, 88 and 20 respectively for those of you who may get that station.

It was also brought to my attention that UConn signee Sha'ki Holines will be playing in the Chowder Bowl Classic on June 21 in Leominster, Mass. Holines will play for the Western Massachusetts squad.

Also, closer to home UConn incoming freshmen Tim Boyle and Cole Ormsby are among the players expected to play in the Hall of Fame Classic at Rentschler Field on June 29.
