Randy Edsall and his staff picked up a big win on the recruiting trail as 3-star quarterback Steve Krajewski announced his commitment to UConn.
Krajewski grew up in Michigan, but moved to Georgia when his father retired. He plays at Colquitt County HS under legendary Alabama high school coach Rush Propst, who has coached players such as Chad Jackson (Miami) and John Parker Wilson (Alabama).
This past summer, Propst told AL.com that “I think [Steve] is one of the top three quarterbacks in the state of Georgia.”
Rivals’ Chad Simmons also had high praise for signal-caller.
This could be a steal for UConn when we look back 4-5 years from now. https://t.co/q4I0QfTfiL— Chad Simmons (@ChadSimmons_) October 12, 2017
Listed at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, Krajewski held offers from Syracuse, Georgia State and Marshall in addition to UConn, but also had interest from Auburn and Alabama. He took his official visit to Storrs this past weekend and decided it was indeed the right fit for him.
This season, Krajewski has thrown for 1,014 passing yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 134 yards and one touchdown, according to MaxPreps.
He will join fellow quarterbacks David Pindell, Marvin Washington and Jordan McAfee at UConn and will hopefully be competing for the starting job sooner rather than later.
