UConn, USF add to signing classes

UConn and USF have made late additions to their signing classes.

The Huskies finally received a letter of intent from quarterback Richard Lagow, who seemed to be wavering in his commitment as signing day closed in. But the three-star quarterback out of Plano, Texas, stuck with the commitment he made last summer and will arrive in Storrs in the fall. UConn has now signed 23 to its 2013 class.

USF, meanwhile, signed three-star two-way athlete Kennard Swanson, who was originally committed to LSU. Swanson played both ways at Lake Gibson in Lakeland, Fla., and was recruited to play fullback. USF now has 24 members in its 2013 signing class.

“Kennard is a tough, hard-nosed player, who brings a lot of athleticism and physicality to our program,” coach Willie Taggart said in a statement Wednesday. “He will be a great asset to what we’re trying to build on the offensive side of the ball. He was a young man who was passionate about USF and really wanted to be here, so we’re excited to have him join this class.”
