Lehighton, Pa., running back Robbie Frey already had an offer from Akron in the bag after looking good at the Zips junior day event back in March. But the 6-foot, 184-pounder has now picked up another offer, according to his father.
"Robbie received an offer from UConn and coach Randy Edsall after attending camp on Sunday," Rob Frey, Robbie's father, said. "That's a really nice offer, and we're excited about it."
UConn and Akron are two of the schools showing the most interest in the all-state running back selection.
Cincinnati, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Kent, Marshall and Miami of Ohio have all been recruiting him during the spring evaluation period
Frey was named a first team Class AAA all-state selection after last season when he scored 25 touchdowns on 315 carries to go along with being the leading rusher in Pennsylvania.
At the recent State College Nike Camp, Frey ran a 4.0-second shuttle, tied for sixth place regardless of position.
"A lot of coaches didn't know about me until this season," Frey said.
"My sophomore year I didn't really get the chance to play. When I did I thought I played well. My speed and quickness are my biggest assets. I especially have the vision as a running back to pick out holes."
