The Sock 'Em, Bust 'Em Board Because that's our custom

Here comes UConn

Big weekend for the Connecticut Huskies, whose sky rocket seems as if it will never run out of fuel. First, they stomp Rutgers Saturday and a day later Jimmy Bennett, a very promising offensive line prospect, committed to the recruiting class of 2008.  

Jimmy Bennett, 6 feet 8, 280 pounds, from West Potomac High School in Alexandria, Va., gave Edsall an oral commitment Sunday night. Bennett chose the Huskies after visiting Boston College, Penn State, Virginia and West Virginia. He visited UConn in April.

Bennett was interested in the Mountaineers and visited over the summer, but like so many other people is impressed by what’s going on in Storrs.

“If you have been with them than you kind of expected them to do well, but not this well,” he said.
