Suffield Academy's McAllister commits to UConn

According to a post on his twitter account, Suffield Academy running back/defensive back Brice McAllister has committed to UConn.

As of today I officially verbally committed to the University of Connecticut.   Thank you to everyone…

As a junior McAllister ran for 1,723 yards and 22 TD runs as a junior in just eight games (averaging 11.4 yards per carry). He also had 11 catches for 268 yards and four more touchdowns.

Here's a link to McAllister's highlight video

Suffield Academy coach Drew Gamere said that McAllister is being recruited as a running back. Gamere said Boston College has been expressing interest in the 5-foot-11, 190-pound McAllister but had not offered him a scholarship. UConn was the only BCS program to offer him and that happened a couple weeks back when Gamere was up at UConn. Gamere also said that McAllister was a strong enough student to draw interest from Ivy League schools.

"He's very explosive and versatile," Gamere said. "He really explodes through the hole but he is also very good at catching the ball out of the backfield.

"He has been (to UConn) two or three times and really felt comfortable with the coaches."

McAllister and Suffield Academy will play in the New Haven area on Oct. 19 when they are at Cheshire Academy for a 6:30 p.m. game.
