First, a story on what Junior Day is all about and what UConn is trying to accomplish with the 2013 class going forward…
A note: when there’s something to report folks or if I “hear anything” or any “rumors” I will report it like I always do. I don’t sit on information. Um…what else… yes, this all I have. No media can’t go to Junior Day.
Now here are some of the student-athletes expected on campus tomorrow for Junior Day (if offers aren’t included it just means I don’t know of any not that there aren’t any; and I marked them NS for not sure).
