Signing day meet and greet postponed

The scheduled meet and greet between fans and the UConn coaching staff tomorrow has been postponed due to the threat of inclement weather. Here is the release from UConn

Due to the forecast of inclement weather, Wednesday’s UConn Football Signing Day event at Rentschler Field has been cancelled. Fans can still follow the latest news of the day at UConnHuskies.com. UConn fans will be able to meet the new football coaching staff at a special meet and greet on Saturday, March 1 at the UConn Club Auction at the XL Center. The auction will be held on Saturday morning prior to the UConn vs. Cincinnati men’s basketball game at noon. No game ticket will be required for the auction and meet and greet.

As of now UConn coach Bob Diaco is set to have a conference call with the media to discuss the class tomorrow afternoon. Of course with so many letter signings taking place in high schools and many schools likely to be canceled due to the winter storm, we'll see if all the letters arrive in the UConn football office.Diaco can't discuss recruits unless he has the letter of intent in hand.
