TheRoundUp 8/14: UConn welcomes Danish DL to camp

UCONN FOOTBALL: Denmark native Knappe happy to be in Storrs - The Middletown Press : Serving Middletown, CT
Knappe saw more time playing defense than he did on the offensive line, so he will start on defense. Although with a frame ideally suited to being an offensive left tackle, it is not out of the realm of possibility that he could switch over to offense during his time at UConn.

Pasqualoni said there are no plans to redshirt Knappe. He hopes the Dane can add some depth to an interior defensive line that lost starters Kendall Reyes and Twyon Martin to graduation.

"Looking for a fresh start and being with coach Moorhead again felt right," Nebrich said in a text message to The Courant Monday. "Since things didn't work out for both of us at UConn, this is our chance to make things right. School is absolutely beautiful and being in NYC is just a little bonus. Overall, just felt like a place I would be happy being at for the next three years and playing with people I'm very comfortable with."

"I was upset last year. I knew I had another year and I could possibly get another one. So, I did it once before and it was harder. It was 6 months, not 9, and I thought I could get into football shape this summer and this camp. I feel a lot better going into this season." That’s good news for the Huskies, who have waited on Bennett for a very long time. Bennett playing left tackle means Adam Masters can remain at right guard and the line remains strong and versatile. Bennett is a classic left tackle prospect and his strength, size agility are a combination that few possess.

"I have no clue what [Calhoun] is going to do," Allen said. "But I know when you've been doing something a long time, there's an emotional attachment to it. It's like a tree planted in the ground. You can't just cut it down; there are complicated roots planted under the ground. It's not a decision you make overnight."
