Storrs Looks Good to Todman

North Dartmouth, Mass., product Jordan Todman has seen his stock rise as of late after fixing some early academic issues and took an official visit this weekend to Storrs to see what the Connecticut Huskies had to offer. Todman came away very impressed with the program after meeting with the coaching staff and touring the facilities and thinks highly of the Huskies.

Jordan Todman finished his senior season at Dartmouth High School with 2147 yards and 35 touchdowns on 187 carries, proving for yet another season that he is indeed one of the top running backs in New England. The 5-foot-9.5, 180-pound athlete already has been offered by Purdue, Northeastern and Connecticut and took some time out this weekend to visit Storrs.

"The visit to Connecticut went really well," Todman stated. "I have been there a few times, so I was already pretty familiar with the campus and school itself, but today I got to meet with Head Coach Randy Edsall for a while and get to know him. We had some good conversation and he asked me what I liked about the school and just spoke about different things they felt were important. We talked about how close Connecticut was to home for me, what the graduation rates were like, the progression of the program and some other things and I just get the feeling from him that he really cares about his players as people, which is very important."

"I also got to hang out with the players for a while and had fun with those guys because it was a laid back setting," Todman explained. "I feel like I have good chemistry with their running backs coach (Terry Richardson) and the environment there really reminded me of my high school. This visit definitely puts Connecticut pretty high on my list and my parents like it there a lot too, so it will be a tough decision when I'm ready to end my recruiting."

Todman rushed for 5803 yards during his high school career, placing him second in Massachusetts history.
