Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas three-star offensive guard Kyle Schafenacker has been mulling his options throughout the summer. The talented offensive lineman had narrowed his options to a top three of Cincinnati, Connecticut, and South Carolina.
On Monday evening, he made his choice.
"(I) committed to UConn," Schafenacker said. "I just committed about five minutes ago.
"I called Coach (Don) Brown and told him," Schafenacker added. "He is the main coach recruiting me. He said he was very excited that I was committing. I called Coach (Paul) Pasqualoni and he talked to me about committing and stuff. We got it done."
Schafenacker spoke of a few of the reasons why he opted for the Big East program.
"It is a great academic school and I feel I have a chance to play early there," Schafenacker said. "I like their facilities a lot. I also like the offensive line coach (George DeLeone) and he coaches the entire offense as well."
The 6-foot-4, 285-pound offensive lineman has yet to see the Storrs campus, but he hopes to in the near future.
"I haven't been there yet," Schafenacker said. "I definitely plan to visit for an official. Probably in September when we have a bye week or something."
With regards to his commitment, the South Florida offensive lineman is pretty confident he will be signing with the Huskies.
"I will listen to other schools and I won't shut any doors, but I am pretty solid in my commitment," Schafenacker said.
