UConn lures Cole Ormsby from UMass

Senior defensive end Cole Ormsby (Windsor, Conn./Windsor) has flipped his commitment from the Minutemen to the Huskies, multiple sources report.

"My family and I talked it over. It's close to home. It just felt right," he told the Hartford Courant. "I spoke with [UConn] coach [Paul] Pasqualoni, and I felt very comfortable with everything. It's a big opportunity that I couldn't turn down."

Ormsby, a 6-foot-4, 218-pound prospect, originally selected UMass in June. This fall, he terrorized opponents to the tune of 85 tackles and a state-leading 17 sacks.
