McQuillan cleared to play

On a teleconference with the Connecticut media UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni said that sophomore tight end Sean McQuillan has been cleared to play in Thursday's season opener.

Pasqualoni said McQuillan was cleared in the last day or two. McQuillan was out there doing some stuff on Sunday and quarterback Chandler Whitmer said the Huskies' likely starter at tight end is doing pretty well.

"He is doing well," Whitmer said on Sunday. "That was scary but he is back and is ready to go."

McQuillan suffered a concussion on a hit by Taylor Mack at a practice late in camp. At first glance it looked like a helmet to helmet hit but Pasqualoni said that wasn't the case.

"The positive part of it was the player who hit him tried not to hit him with his helmet and just didn’t get low enough and hit him kind of with his shoulder and arm in his neck and jaw area," Pasqualoni said.

Pasqualoni said everybody he was expected to have looks good for go for the Towson game.

There hasn't been much news on Hamden Hall quarterback T.J. Linta since UConn received a commitment from St. Paul's Logan Marchi.

I spoke to Linta's father for another story I am working on and he said that T.J. is looking at Virginia, Brown and Princeton and that a commitment could come ."probably in another week or two."

The Lintas are planning another visit to Brown and could make another trip to Virginia as well but the hope is to have the college decision done with before T.J. Linta begins his senior season.
