Wrapping up Wednesday's UConn practice

The first practice from preseason practice is in the books.

Not much to report as the first and second offenses and defenses were (for the most part) are what is on the depth chart.

Tyler Davis has been moved from quarterback to tight end while freshman Jay Rose, who ironically plays the same hybrid position that Davis is now a part of, did no practice because he wasn't feeling well according to head coach Bob Diaco.

The true freshmen seeing the most time with the second team are cornerbacks (Tyler Coyle and Tahj Herring-Wilson) and running backs (Nate Hopkins, who had a TD in a short-yardage drill and Ja'Kevious Vickers).

Nick Zecchino was seeing some work as a long snapper.

It didn't happen much but I saw Luke Carrezola and Cam Stapleton on the field together and Diaco said Stapleton is being looked at as a possibility at the linebacker spot opposite of

I will have a story running in tomorrow's paper focusing on the quarterback competition between Bryant Shirreffs and Garrett Anderson, caught up with safety Anthony Watkins as he looks to win the starting spot alongside of Obi Melifonwu and spoke to Bryan Coney, who recently was awarded a scholarship so stay tuned.
