Quarterback Steven Krajewski announced his verbal commitment to the UConn Huskies on October 12, becoming the first and only quarterback in the class of 2018 for Randy Edsall and his staff. Krajewski made things official when he signed his paperwork on Wednesday morning in a ceremony at his high school in Moultrie, Georgia.
Krajewski stands at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds and is rated a 3-star prospect by both Rivals and 247. He chose UConn over offers from Marshall, Georgia State, and Syracuse. He committed shortly after making an official visit to Storrs. In an interview with Rivals, Krajewski cited the academics, lovely campus, and the opportunity to play in Rhett Lashlee’s offense as some of the key factors in his decision.
Though listed as a pro-style passer, the Huskies’ newest quarterback can also make plays with his legs and has a knack for making plays when they’re needed. He helped lead his team at Colquitt County HS to the Class 7a Georgia State finals, where he threw a go-ahead touchdown pass with 0:50 left only to watch the other team mount a game-winning field goal drive. He finished his senior season with 2226 yards and 22 touchdowns with just six interceptions and a 65% completion percentage.
Krajewski joins a quarterback crew at UConn which includes rising senior David Pindell, redshirt junior Brandon Bisack, and redshirt freshmen Marvin Washington and Jordan McAfee.
