Lorenzen enjoys visit to Connecticut

One of the best passers in the country this past season was Palomar's Tyler Lorenzen. Because he'll only have two years to play two, some schools have shied away from recruiting him, but UConn invited the All-American to their campus presented him with his first official offer.

"I went up there this past weekend and it was a great visit," Lorenzen told JCFootball.com. "We got to go to the basketball game and they really put on a show. I think they won like 106-50 or something like that.

"I was hosted by Steve Brouse, a tight end for them, and we got along well. He and the assistant recruiting coordinator showed me around and it was really eye opening."

Lorenzen said he was impressed with the facilities and the staff's approach to things and said he could see himself playing there.

"Their facilities, staff and fans are first rate," Lorenzen said. "I had a lot of fun and I would have the opportunity to come in there and play right away which is very important because of my eligibility situation."

Lorenzen, who passed for almost 3,000 yards and rushed for almost 900, while throwing for 29 touchdowns and only three interceptions said he didn't commit, but he is definitely leaning hard to the Huskies at this point.

"Oh they're definitely my leader, especially when you consider they've offered and that I can play early," Lorenzen said. "I've got some other schools who are showing some interest so I want to see if I have any other options, but right now, Connecticut is my leader."

Lorenzen promised to update JCFootball.com as soon as he sets another visit, which he could take this coming weekend.
