The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - PAGE 2 - By Jim Fuller

With the UConn foot­ball team set to kick off spring prac­tice on Tues­day, the team’s ros­ter has been re­leased.

The good news is that no ad­di­tional schol­ar­ship play­ers have de­parted fol­low­ing the pre­vi­ously an­nounced de­ci­sions by Tyler Davis, Michael Tar­butt, Marshé Terry, Kevin Mur­phy to ex­plore op­tions at other col­leges as grad­u­ate trans­fers in ad­di­tion to Dar­rian Beavers and Jor­dan McAfee trans­fer­ring to Cincin­nati and As­sump­tion re­spec­tively.

Non-schol­ar­ship play­ers Jar­rett Chaney, An­thony Re­pol­let, Ten­zin Pharachesur and Har­ri­son Newman are not on the spring ros­ter.

De­fen­sive back Oneil Robin­son, who fin­ished fourth on the 2018 UConn team with 64 tackles as a true fresh­man, has switched uni­form num­bers from 31 to 17. Speak­ing of uni­form num­bers, grad­u­ate trans­fer run­ning back Art Thomp­kins will wear No. 1 while true fresh­men de­fen­sive line­men Eric Watts and Jeff Woods have been as­signed No. 95 and 99. Another fresh­man is on the ros­ter is for­mer Bloom­field High star Ven­tine Richard­son, a linebacker who was on the Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional Col­lege ros­ter in 2018.
