Another OL commit for UConn

It wasn't too long ago that UConn was struggling to hold onto some commitments in the weeks and months between the dismissal of Paul Pasqualoni and hiring of Bob Diaco. Now the tables have turned as the coaching change at Syracuse ultimately resulted in recruit No. 13 for UConn in the Class of 2016.

Offensive lineman Cam DeGeorge, a former Syracuse commit, announced via his Twitter account that he has committed to UConn.

Very proud to announce that I am now committed to UConn. Thank you to everyone who was apart of the process.

According to the database, DeGeorge committed to Syracuse on April 6 and had offers from North Carolina State and Temple.

The 6-foot-5, 262 pound DeGeorge led Lynnfield (Mass.) High to an 8-3 record as a senior and to an 11-1 mark and trip to the Massachusetts Division 4 semifinals as a junior.

He is the third offensive lineman in the Class of 2016 to commit to UConn joining Pingree's Nino Leone and Immaculata (N.J.) High's Mike Lonsdorf.

UConn has 13 commitments and there are 12 seniors on scholarship on the current roster. However, fullback Jazzmar Clax (a redshirt junior) took part in Senior Day festivities before the home finale against Houston indicating that he won't be with the team after this season. Junior receiver Dhameer Bradley already announced via his Twitter account that he is transferring to Sacred Heart. Bradley is one of four players (three on scholarship) no longer on the UConn roster. I was able to confirm that safety Jordan Floyd, offensive lineman Zach Rugg and walk-on linebacker Jack Dexter are no longer a part of the program. Among that group, Floyd is the player who saw the most time this season as he played in eight games and finished with five tackles including two in the win over Army. Rugg was on the participation for the season opener against Villanova.

If my math is correct (and anybody who reads this blog knows that is a rather large 'if'') I count 69 scholarship players between the freshman, sophomore and junior classes (not including Clax) which would leave UConn with 16 scholarships for this current recruiting class.
