Huskies Offer LeGrande
"I went up for a visit today and Coach (Scott) Lakatos showed me around," LeGrande said. "He seemed like a great guy and was down to Earth and he also introduced me to Head Coach Randy Edsall. Coach Edsall was real cool and was cracking jokes with us. He talked to me about the school a bit and what they're trying to do with their program."
LeGrande had previously visited Syracuse and was quoted as having "fallen in love with it there", but is definitely keeping his options open for now. He has been talking with programs from around the nation and more offers should certainly be on the way over time. We asked LeGrande how the facilities at Connecticut stacked up against what he had already seen.
"They have really nice facilities there, they're just crazy to tell you the truth," LeGrande explained. "The weight room was real nice. It had a miniature track that they run their 40-yard dashes on, was two levels and was absolutely huge. In the training room they had three separate pools and had a bubble with a full-size indoor field. Everything was real nice there and I liked how compact things were. I'd rate the visit a 7 out of 10. Connecticut will be a school that I have to put into consideration going forward."
LeGrande led the Curtis Warriors to a 12-1 record and championship appearance last season throwing for over 1800 yards and 11 touchdowns to only four interceptions. He also picked up over 600 yards and scored 11 more times on his feet. For his efforts, he was recognized as an All-State and All-City selection.
