The UConn coaching staff added another playmaker to this fall’s incoming haul as RB Kevin Mensah announced his commitment to the Huskies.

Listed at 5-foot-9, 200 pounds, Mensah hails from Worcester, MA where he played at Shepherd Hill. He received interest from a wide range of schools, and has re-classified on various occasions. His other confirmed offer came from Bryant.

For his senior season, Mensah transferred to Shepherd Hill, a public school, from Holy Names, a catholic school. This created quite the controversy and Mensah was forced to sit out for much of the season, which likely had a significant effect on his recruitment.

After the lost season, he decided to take a post-grad year at St. Thomas Moore, which paid off in the form of an offer from UConn.
