UConn's first spring practice is in the books

The first spring practice of 2015 is in the books and there's not too much to report from the 30 minutes we were able to check out.

Safety Obi Melifonwu was wearing a yellow jersey with a red cross indicating that he wasn't fully recovered but he was able to do some stuff during practice.

A few things that caught my eye. First, Cameron Stapleton went out there with the starting defense while the starting offensive line featured Ryan Crozier at center, Trey Rutherford and Tyler Samra at guard with Andreas Knappe and Richard Levy manning the tackle spots.

I was struck by the way new offensive coordinator Frank Verducci would make the entire offense go back into the huddle if he felt they lacked the proper sense of urgency when they got to the line.

There were some high school recruits at the practice including Southington tight end Jay Rose.

Here are some videos from the practice
