On Wednesday, the first early signing period for football got underway and head coach UConn Huskies head coach Randy Edsall broke out the fax machine a little early this year to get National Letters of Intent from players all across the country. The first one came from Travis Jones.

Jones is a three-star defensive lineman from local Wilbur Cross High School and is a New Haven native. He committed to Rutgers in June, but de-committed the following day and held offers from the Scarlet Knights as well as Boston College, Pittsburgh, and Temple. He gave his pledge to Edsall and the Huskies July 27.

Jones is an imposing 6-foot-5, 350 pounds and has the size profile to fit in at the collegiate level sooner rather than later. He is the fourth-ranked player in Connecticut according to Rivals.
