Huskies add offensive lineman

Interior blocker Matt Barone (McKees Rocks, Pa./Montour) has committed to play for UConn, according to multiple sources. The 6-foot-3, 280-pound prospect also received an early scholarship offer from Akron.

Other programs including Georgia Tech, Maryland, Michigan State, Missouri, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Illinois, Purdue and Kent State showed interest.

The Huskies, who recently suffered a decommitment from defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko (Brooklyn/Jefferson), have two pledges for 2013. In-state athlete Noel Thomas (Norwalk, Conn./St. Luke's) committed in late February.
