UConn signs 17, focusing on players from winning programs

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Coming off its first bowl game in five seasons, UConn concentrated its recruiting efforts on players from winning programs, signing a class of 16 on Wednesday.

The Huskies recruits went 140-40 in high school, winning a combined seven state titles, said second-year coach Bob Diaco.

Diaco, whose team improved from 2-10 in his first year to 6-7 last season, said it was important to him to add "achievers" as he continues to build the program.
