A look at UConn's 2017 roster

UConn has posted its 2017 roster on its site and the biggest news is that there isn't much news at all to report.

Every scholarship player expected to return is on the roster. I don't see a pair of walk-ons - running back Rick Bartone of Derby and linebacker Richmond Williams on there. Running back Ron Johnson, who previous announced via social media that he is transferring is gone from the roster as is defensive lineman Felton Blackwell, now enrolled at ASA College.

As far as position changes, fullback Teddy Allmendinger is now listed as a tight end and linebacker A.J. Garson is now a defensive lineman. Luke Carrezola and Connor Freeborn have also gone from being listed as linebackers to defensive linemen but Cam Stapleton is still considered a linebacker.

There were some changes in the weights as well most notably promising offensive lineman Cam DeGeorge going from being listed at 255 pounds on the final set of game notes in 2016 to his current weight of 283. Tight end Chris Lee is now listed at 280 pounds, defensive back Tyler Coyle (196 to 205) and offensive lineman Ian Campbell (287 to 296) are other players who have added some weight while offensive lineman Nino Leone went from 345 to 337.

Defensive back Omar Fortt is the only new name on there as the former St. Luke's star has enrolled early.
