What’s goin on
Bryant Shirreffs, a 6-3, 228-pound sophomore who played nine games for N.C.State as a freshman has committed to the UConn football program for the 2015 season.
He has to sit out this season under NCAA transfer rules but will have four years to graduate and three years to play.
Shirreffs of Jefferson, Ga., will add depth to the position which is down this year with the loss of Kivon Taylor who decided to transfer. Next year, the Huskies will be getting a player with ACC playing experience, who adds depth and most importantly will elevate the competition between him Casey Cochran, Tim Boyle and newcomer Tyler Davis.
“N.C. State is nice but when you don’t necessarily trust who you’re playing for or really don’t like believe in the system I don’t think it’s useful to stay in a place you can’t succeed,” Shirreffs told me.. “And you can try as hard as you can but if you don’t feel like you can succeed, you’re thinking about leaving, you’re not all in or fully committed to that school so that’s what I felt. I believe it wasn’t good for me or the team for me to be there.”
