Spring practice No. 4 underway at UConn

The players are back on campus and UConn is in the midst of its first practice in more than a week.

Not much to report on the 20-30 minutes we were able to watch. Receiver Shakim Phillips was back doing drills after being among the injured players in the last practice I was at.

Guard Gus Cruz continues to be held out of drills as he works his way back from the cardiac issues which ended his 2013 season prematurely. Receiver Kamal Abrams and defensive back David Stevenson were among the small group of players working on stationary bikes. Still no sign of suspended freshman quarterback Kivon Taylor.

Bob Diaco was not happy with how the players struggled to run a basic conditioning drill so he had them do it three times. He gathered the team around him and implored them to "raise the level of your intensity, raise the level of your focus" before the team broke off and started doing positional drills.

Here's the video I shot from the practice.
