The University of Connecticut has become known for coaching kids up and turning high school football sleepers into college standouts. Their latest commitment is a player few have heard much about except locally, but he has the potential to be one of those standouts.
"Scott has made his decision and he's committed to UConn," said Alan Lutrus, father of linebacker/running back Scott Lutrus from Brookfield, Conn. "He just has a great comfort level with the coaches and really likes the direction of the program."
Lutrus chose UConn over many Ivy League schools as well as UMass. During his senior season he rushed for more then 2,000 yards and scored 25 touchdowns. On defense he had 63 tackles and 4 interceptions.
"He's being recruited as an athlete but most likely he'll be a linebacker," his father said. "He took his official visit this past weekend and the coaches talked to him about playing that position. He's excited to be a part of something building at UConn."
