UConn to hold meeting, tryout for walk-ons

One of the best things that Bob Diaco did during his time as UConn's head coach was look for walk-on candidates during the recruiting process and then follow that up by rewarding many of those players with scholarships.

Punter Justin Wain, offensive lineman Brendan Vechery, defensive lineman Sean Marinan, defensive back Nick Vitale and running back Jason Thompson are among those players who went from walk-ons to scholarship players and contributed on the field.

Time will tell just how Randy Edsall and his staff will handle the non-scholarship players but one thing they will be doing is holding tryouts for walk-ons.

It was announced today that an informational meeting will be held on Feb. 13  at 3:30 p.m. in the Burton Family Football Complex with tryouts scheduled for Feb. 17.
