Casey Cochran (Monroe, Conn./Masuk) said he got what he wanted: a verbal offer from the University of Connecticut.

UConn extended that offer last Thursday, and Cochran, a three-star quarterback, committed shortly after he took an official visit to the school Sunday.

"I was very excited when I got the offer," Cochran said. "After I watched practice [Sunday] I sat down and discussed it with my parents. It felt right. I felt comfortable with the coaching staff."
