Pa. WR Lemelle Recaps UConn Visit

Bishop McDevitt High (Harrisburg, Pa.) receiver Brian Lemelle spoke with FOXSportsNEXT about his official visit to Connecticut last weekend

Bishop McDevitt High (Harrisburg, Pa.) receiver Brian Lemelle made an official visit to Connecticut last weekend, but it was Thursday's phone call that gave him more clarity with the Huskies.

Lemelle said he spoke with new offensive coordinator T.J. Weist, the former receivers coach at Cincinnati, about how he would be used in the offense.

"He was recruiting me at Cincinnati," Lemelle said. "He's an exciting guy. He called me and we talked for half an hour. He talked about how he could use me in offense and see me as a slot receiver and move me around."

Lemelle, who begins an official visit to Iowa today and is slated to visit Temple next weekend, was visited by Iowa on Wednesday and Owls coach Matt Rhule was in to see him Tuesday. UConn also stopped by the school, a few days after he returned from his visit.

"(Receiver) Shakir Phillips hosted me," Lemelle said. "He's a real nice guy. He showed me places and told me everything about UConn and how much he liked it. He laid everything out for me and said he was appreciative of the way UConn does things."

Lemelle said Friday was laid back as he met other recruits and also with some of the coaches but the visit kicked into gear Saturday.

"They showed me around campus and showed me all the buildings, and we had dinner with recruits the other recruits," he said. "We went to facilities and got to see how nice it was there."

Although Weist wasn't in place yet, Lemelle sat with other coaches and talked about how he could fit into the offense.

"The coaches were impressed with watching film and how I play, and they said they really want me to play at UConn," Lemelle said. "They showed me what I did last year and how the wide receivers played."
