UConn football sees another wave of transfers

New, comments

The Huskies are watching a number of starters and key contributors walk out with eligibility remaining.

Just two days ago, the list of players transferring out of UConn was at eight, including a number of offensive linemen and linebacker Eddie Hahn. On Friday, another five announced their departures from the program and intention of playing elsewhere.

Three key players on defense, Tahj Herring-Wilson, Tyler Coyle, and Ryan Gilmartin, shared that they would be transferring via Twitter Friday morning. Mason Donaldson, a wide receiver who also kicked for the Huskies, and offensive lineman Noel Brouse will also be taking their talents elsewhere. All of them will likely be graduate transfers immediately eligible for next year.

UPDATE (4:05 p.m.): Donovan Williams is also leaving.

SECOND UPDATE: Add LB AJ Garson and QB Mike Beaudry to the list.

These announcements were a huge blow to UConn’s hopes for further improvement, especially on defense, next year. They also warrant additional criticism of Randy Edsall’s ability to move this program in the right direction. Losing multiple starters on the offensive line and players like Coyle and Herring-Wilson is not a good look.

Multiple former Husky players, including recent graduate Hergy Mayala, expressed negative sentiments towards the way things are being run in Storrs.
