Linebacker Jason Sylva (Plymouth, Mass./Tabor Academy) had been hoping for a scholarship offer from Boston College for more than a year, so shortly after he received that offer he committed to ... Connecticut?

"BC offered on June 15, the day I attended camp there," Sylva said. "That's where I was thinking I wanted to go. Then I went to a Connecticut camp on Sunday and was so impressed. There was something about that place. Everybody just raves about [coach] Paul Pasqualoni and [defensive coordinator] Don Brown.

"I have a feeling they didn't expect to get me to be honest. I'm just really dead-set on UConn."
