Connaughton, a 6-foot-3, 275-pound junior, currently holds an offer from Bryant and has been hearing regularly from the Huskies as well as Boston College, Maryland and BYU. Connaughton, a Lincoln resident who is the cousin of St. John's Prep two-sport star Pat Connaughton, told Brown that BYU is coming on Wednesday to watch him work out.
"Right now I have no idea where I want to go. I'm hoping to play [FBS] football and I'm keeping all my options open," Dan Connaughton told Brown.
He also told Brown he plans on attending one-day camps at BC, UConn and Maryland.
"Coaches have told me they like my technique and the way I use my hands," he said. "I'd definitely like to get my decision done before my senior season, but if it happens after my senior year starts that's really not a big deal."
