Some new names on UConn's updated roster

UConn posted its roster for the start of preseason camp not too long ago.

Names of  the players previously reported to be joining UConn in the fall are on there - Kyle Buss,  Kevin Mensah, Zavier Scott and Santana Sterling are on there. But there are four new names to report as well freshman receiver Jerrell Chaney, freshman punter Luke Magliozzi, freshman defensive back Ben Pryor and junior defensive lineman Carlton Steer.

Some newcomers including quarterback David Pindell and tight end Jasen Rose were on the previously-posted roster so that is why they were no listed above. One of the best news items to report is that everybody on the previous roster is present and accounted for on the upcoming roster.

Here's some info on the aforementioned players

Kyle Buss had 50 catches for Robert Morris during 2015 season. He only played two games last year and had two catches.

Don't have much information Jerrell Chaney. No hometown is listed on the roster but believe he comes from Albany (NY.) High School.

Luke Magliozzi comes to UConn from Australia. Don't have much info on him but here's a link to a youtube video of him punting

Kevin Mensah is a running back caught up in red tape as he transferred high schools as a senior forcing him to miss two games before being cleared to play

Ben Pryor originally enrolled at Sacred Heart University

Zavier Scott is a receiver who like Mensah reclassified into the Class of 2017 and is immediately eligible

Carlton Steer is a former tight end at Central Connecticut State who had two tackles during the 2014 season and one reception in 2015.

Santana Sterling, a linebacker, originally enrolled at Arizona State before landing at Mesa Community College.
