Bad weather and all…
What’s goin on?
Ansonia High running back Arkeel Newsome, the UConn Football program’s first-ever Parade All-American, is the most recent recruit to send his letter which has been received at UConn so the state’s all time leader in rushing yards and touchdowns is officially a Husky.
UConn Coach Bob Diaco will be able to talk about Newsome and the rest of the Class of 2014 today. He’ll address the media by teleconference at 3:30 p.m.
