"The campus really reminded me of home because it's out in the country and is just really laid back," Frey explained. "The first time I visited before I committed I brought my mom and step-father and the second for my official I brought my dad and step-mother."
"My official visit ended up being a really fun time," Frey said. "I stayed with Donald Brown and also got to meet Terry Caulley who was graduating, but also wore my number 44. When I found that out I made sure to ask Coach (Randy) Edsall if I could wear it because I had had it since the third grade and he said yes. They took us around campus to see the secondary education and science buildings and we also checked out the Hilltop Apartments which are really nice because they're obviously on a hill and overlook the campus. I can also definitely tell you that I ate the most that weekend I ever have in my life and my other set of parents were jealous they weren't on this trip instead."
"For me I wanted to stay close to home, but education was the big factor, which I felt Connecticut had an edge in," Frey explained. "It also came down to me feeling comfortable with the coaching staff and I got along with all of them well from Coach (Hank) Hughes, to Coach (Randy) Edsall to Coach (Terry) Richardson."
"The first college to really come visit me at school was UConn and both Coach Hughes and Coach Edsall came together which made a very big impression on me. Coach Hughes was always in contact with me and was there to answer any questions I ever had. Coach Richardson is just a really mellow guy and if I ever learn one thing from him it's that he can't spell at all. When my parents and I were visiting he was laughing because his spelling was so bad. He's a really great guy. Coach Edsall is just very open and very excitable. I like that he's a family man and that he wants to make us student-athletes, not just athletes. Education is as important to him as it is to me."
As a senior, Frey rushed for over 2000 yards and 27 touchdowns and was named first team Class AAA All-State by the Associated-Press. He was named to the Harrisburg Patriot-News "Platinum 33" team.
