Taking a closer look at UConn's incoming recruiting class

The present-day view of the UConn football team is not exactly a pretty picture especially after another meek offensive performance in last week's loss at Tulane. Rather than use this space documenting how much the Huskies are struggling for at least another day or two, I decided to take a different approach.

I emailed the coaches of the UConn commits who don't have their team's season stats up on the internet to get updated numbers on the future Huskies.

Led by Ian Campbell's Pequannock squad and Michael Tarbutt's Canisius team (both 6-0), the combined record of the UConn commits is 50-36 which includes two head to head matchups.

As you may notice, some players have significantly more information included and that is a result of the some coaches providing the info. A special thanks to the coaches of Trey Blackwell, Chris Lee, Kevin Murphy and Nazir Williams for responding to my request for more information.

Here you go
