Difton signed with the Huskies in 2009 from the nation's No. 1-ranked high school team, St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida. UConn fans were giddy with the idea of getting a rare, highly-ranked recruit after Edsall spent years succeeding with under-the-radar prospects.
But Difton could never crack the starting lineup and had only 22 catches in two years, including 14 last season. And it wasn't like the other UConn receivers were smashing records or winning All-America honors.
Even with a fresh start under new coach Paul Pasqualoni this year, Difton couldn't step forward as a major piece of the offense. So he has decided to transfer.
