Greenwich TE looking to camp at UConn, RU

All-Fairfield County, TE/H-Back prospect Ricky Riscica (6'3 215) is in the early stages of planning his summer camp and combine schedule.

The versatile Riscica, who split time at TE and Split End last year, is looking to camp at Uconn and Rutgers this summer. “UConn came to our school last year and recruited a few of the guys on our team. One of my former teammates, Bo Brunelli, is going up there as a preferred walk-on. They have done a great job in the state and are developing a top program. Rutgers is also a school that we have followed as a family for some time. My dad had a working relationship with former Coach Mike Miello, and it is exciting to see they have transformed the team. Those are the two camps I most definitely am looking to attend“.

Riscica, who is a relative unknown at this time, was one of the top players on a very talented, State Champion Greenwich Team. “We had some great players on our squad last year, and we really meshed well. We went 11-1 and our sole loss was against Naples, Florida, which was an excellent team. We lost that game, but we also learned a lot about ourselves and it ultimately was a tremendous learning experience. Hopefully, we can repeat as State Champs again this year…. This year, we will also have a very challenging out of state game, when we play St Joe’s (Montvale, NJ) towards the end of the year“.

This Greenwich team does not have the firepower of last year’s club, but the test is something Riscica is looking forward to. “It is going to be hard to replace that level of talent and leadership. On the other hand, it is also a great opportunity for us to work hard, remain motivated, and elevate our game. I was named team captain for next year and I am taking pride in being a leader on this team. Right now, I am pushing myself and my teammates hard during off-season workouts”.

And while Riscica has made great strides in his off-season workouts, the next few months will be a time for Riscica to focus on his baseball skills. “I did real well last year in baseball and have received a good number of letters from some top programs. It is exciting to get recruited in both sports”.

Riscica, who has yet to receive his first offer, states he has no favorites or dream teams at this time. “I just want the opportunity to compete and get a great education. Hopefully, the hard work will pay off in the end”.
