Connecticut picked up commitment No. 1 this weekend after the prospect took his first visit to campus. The Huskies went to Virginia for their first commitment in the 2011 recruiting class.
"I committed on my visit there," Burke (Va.) Lake Braddock quarterback Michael Nebrich said. "I fell in love with Connecticut once I got there and checked out all the facilities and met with the coaching staff. But, Coach Edsall was the one who really sold me."
What was it about Edsall that made Nebrich decide?
"I was really looking for a head coach that was a family oriented coach," he said. "After meeting with Coach Edsall, he told me that he treats his players like his own sons and that everyone on the team was part of the UConn family. So, that's when I knew Connecticut was gonna be my new home."
Nebrich went further about his selection.
"This was my first time up there and I was really looking for a college town school," he said. "Connecticut is a big college town and the campus is absolutely gorgeous. The Burton Family Football Complex where I'll be spending most of my time there was incredible. Everything was brand new and top of the line."
Despite being versatile, Connecticut is eyeing Nebrich as a quarterback.
"I'll be playing quarterback there," he said. "I'll probably redshirt my first year and then get my shot to play my redshirt freshman year."
