University of Connecticut football coaches are expecting to receive commitments from at least 21 recruits. Wednesday is the first day players are eligible to sign national letters of intent.
The class is led by wide receiver Dwayne Difton from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Leon Kinnard, a quarterback from Baltimore. The Huskies also have commitments from some top in-state players: Mike Osiecki, a linebacker from Seymour, and Marcus Aiken, a receiver from St. Paul Catholic in Bristol.
Several other top state players are expected to announce their college plans.
New London quarterback Jordan Reed has given a verbal commitment to Florida and Northwest Catholic lineman Jake Golic will join his brother Mike at Notre Dame, where their father, former NFL lineman Mike Golic Sr., starred.
