QB Taylor leaves UConn

Richard Lagow and Kivon Taylor were all smiles
during media day last August but both have moved on
One of the highlights of the final class signed by Paul Pasqualoni was having three quarterbacks signed by the Huskies.

Well, with the news that Kivon Taylor is no longer enrolled at UConn and intends to transfer, only Tim Boyle is left from that trio.

Taylor commitment on 2013 signing day was a huge surprise considering that UConn already had commitments from Boyle and Richard Lagow. He redshirted last season and ran into trouble during the spring as he was suspended indefinitely from the team. He was later reinstated to the squad. He did not play in the spring game but was expected to compete with Boyle, Casey Cochran and Chandler Whitmer for the starting job when preseason camp begins on Aug. 1.

Taylor's departure leaves the Huskies with just three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster and with Chandler Whitmer gone at the end of this season, the hope is that Boyle and Cochran are here for the duration regardless of who gets named the starting QB because if one of them were to leave, next year's team would feature one experienced scholarship quarterback.

As for the aforementioned Lagow, he left schools during preseason camp last year to be closer to home. He enrolled at Oklahoma State but was not on the Cowboys' roster last season but as an alert blog reader pointed out, he is on the 2014 Oklahoma State roster listed as a redshirt freshman.

UConn announced kickoff times for three more games as the Sept. 13 home game against Boise State will start at noon (and will air on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2), the Sept. 19 game at South Florida will start shortly after 8 p.m. on either ESPN or ESPN2 and the Oct. 23 game at East Carolina is a 7 p.m. start on ESPNU.

We now have starting times for half of the 12 games as it was previously announced that the Aug. 29 season and home opener against Brigham Young will start at 7 p.m., the Sept. 6 home game against Stony Brook will be a noon kickoff and the Nov. 8 game against Army at Yankee Stadium is set to start at 3:30 p.m.
