All letters in for UConn's incoming freshman classs

It is kind of fitting that it was a bit of a chaotic national signing day considering what has transpired with the UConn football program over the last year but all 14 players committed to the Huskies sent in their letters of intent by fax, email or reindeer. Here's a look at the class
