…Clemson transfer wide receiver Bryce McNeal is not coming to UConn after all.
In graduating in three years UConn simply could not get him into graduate school.
UConn Coach Paul Pasqualoni was confident the school did all it could to get McNeal in.
I’m hearing Louisville is his next destination but can’t get confirmation.
– Andreas Knappe, the 6-9, 290-pounder UConn just got from Denmark to play offensive line is 21 years old, will be a freshman and after having a look at how big he is, Pasqualoni has decided on playing on the defensive line first because he thinks it’s best chance to get on the field right away.
– So far, Pasqualoni said, all players are eligible for the 2012 season but a semester closes on Friday – also when practice starts, players report Aug.2) – and he’ll know for sure then.
– Pasqualoni was awfully high on running backs Martin Hyppolite and Max DeLorenzo as potentially reliable thumpers next to tailback Lyle McCombs, a 5 foot 8, 1000-yard rusher for the Huskies last season. He said each will pound you but have wiggles (moves, shakes, elusiveness) in their games. He added people will like seeing Joe Williams hit the edge
Pasqualoni said defensive end Trevardo Williams is an outside linebacker waiting to happen and you may see him line up that way this season..the cast is expected off the left-hand of freshman quarterback Casey Cochran about a week before the Aug.30 season opener against UMass.
Pasqualoni was asked who would be his starting quarterback today if the season started. He said Chandler Whitmer, the JC transfer, based on his performance in the spring game. But, the coach added “the season is not starting today.”
