2 UConn commit in playoffs tonight

There's still plenty of uncertainty surrounding the players who have committed to UConn. The Huskies already lost one recruit when tight end Jordan Fuchs flipped to Rutgers. Also, Justin Noye took an official visit to Old Dominion last weekend. While these next several weeks will be interesting as who knows which of the players currently committed to UConn will be landing in Storrs. That being said, I plan on updating the current commits as if they are going to signing with the Huskies.

Tonight two of those commits looks to take the next step towards winning state championships.

Defensive end Luke Carrezola's Neshaminy squad plays Abington in the Pennsylvania District 1 Class AAAA semifinals while offensive lineman Lamont Bradford's Timber Creek team squares off with Kingsway in South Jersey Group 4 Second Round game.

As for the Connecticut playoffs, the pairings will be officially announced after the completion of the Thanksgiving Day games. 

Arkeel Newsome's Ansonia team is currently No. 2 in the CIAC Class S ratings and has clinched a playoff spot. Logan Marchi's St. Paul squad has been eliminated from contention for a Class S spot.

Newsome ran for 222 yards and four touchdowns (giving him 2,457 rushing yards and 41 rushing TDs) as Ansonia defeated Woodland 48-7 in the NVL championship game on Wednesday.

Marchi can earn a bit of history when St. Paul hosts Xavier in the regular-season finale on Wednesday. Marchi has 112 career touchdown passes which ties the state record set by current UConn starting quarterback Casey Cochran. He also needs nine completions to join New Canaan's Matt Milano as the only Connecticut players with two seasons with at least 200 completions. If he gets those nine completions, he will break Cochran's state record for career completions. On the season he is 191 of 317 yards for 3,220 yards, 38 TDs and 12 interceptions to go with 540 rushing yards.

Here's a look at some of the other UConn commits
