Ohio lineman, Florida DE latest UConn commits

Nolan Ulizio was among the uncommitted recruits in attendance at Friday's Husky Football Awards Show.

Well, he is undecided about his college destination no longer as the 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman out of Lakota West High in West Chester, Ohio announced via his Twitter account that he has committed to UConn.

Proud to announce that I have officially committed to the University of Connecticut

Ulizio helped Lakota West pile up at least 350 yards of total offense in five of the first six games of the season en route to a berth in the Ohio Division I quarterfinals.

There was a time during this recruiting cycle when UConn didn't have an offensive lineman on its list of commitment but three of the last four (New London's Bryan Cespedes, Matthew Peart of Governor's Academy and Ulizio) are offensive linemen.

He was not the only prospect at the dinner who decided that UConn was the place for him as Dallas Parker, a defensive end out of Ponta Vedra, Florida also committed today. His commitment was posted on Twitter by arguably the Huskies' best recruiter - quarterback signee Tyler Davis who was also at the awards show.

Parker ended his high school career by making 17 tackles with a sack and four quarterback hurries in a 21-10 loss to Merritt Island. He had 71 tackles in the seven games he played in as a senior.
