First commitments during Diaco regime rolling in at UConn

Well, it didn't take Bob Diaco long to add to UConn's list of commitments.

Yesterday I reported that Steven Hashemi, an All-State offensive tackle for Class M champion St. Joseph, has committed to UConn and now via some Twitter posts, the list of known commitments from the first batch of recruits to take official visits with Diaco has grown to four.

Lawrenceville wide receiver Anthony Watkins posted on his Twitter account that he has committed to UConn.

The 5-11, 185-pound Watkins had 49 catches for 872 yards as a senior and had at least six catches in each of his first five games. He caught 12 passes for 204 yards in 45-15 loss to Choate and had seven receptions for 216 yards and four TDs in 53-13 win over Mercersburg Academy. He also had kickoff returns of 86 and 90 yards and punt returns of 60 and 85 yards.

The Lawrenceville football program's Twitter page also said that DT Sheriden Lawley has committed to UConn.

Sticking with the announcing their commitments via Twitter, Palmetto Ridge (Fla.) running back/linebacker Ron Johnson announced that he has committed to UConn as well.

After meeting with the bossman last night, I decided to commit to UCONN #HuskieNation #3

Johnson has good size (212 pounds) if he is kept on the offensive side of the ball.

Johnson ran for 1,522 yards and 16 touchdowns and had eight tackles in a season-opening win over Lehigh.
