UConn's Crozier to miss season; TE Williams to transfer in

There is some news to report on the UConn football team beginning with some bad news as projected starting center Ryan Crozier will miss the upcoming season due to a lower-body injury.

Crozier started the last three games of the season at left offensive guard but was being moved to center to replace the graduated Alex Mateas. Although he has never played a game at center, he was one of 63 players named to the Rimington Trophy watch list.

Crozier played as a true freshman so he will use the 2015 season to redshirt and have three seasons of eligibility remaining. Dan Oak, who redshired last season, was one of the early candidates to replace Mateas so perhaps he will move into the starting role.

The news wasn't all bad as UConn added former Northern Iowa tight end Billy Williams as a transfer.
The 6-foot-3 Williams is a native of Knoxville, Tenn. who had two catches for 94 yards as a freshman in 2014. He is currently enrolled in summer school but will need to sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer regulations.
