UConn football bolstered its 2019 recruiting class rankings some more by dipping into the transfer pool again. Tim O’Shea III, formerly of Wagner College, announced he is transferring UConn.
Thank you Wagner College for giving me the opportunity to play at the D1 level. I will be transferring from Wagner, and I’m extremely excited to announce that I will be attending and playing football at the University of Connecticut!!! ⚪️ #BleedBlue @CoachCEdsall @coachz1336 pic.twitter.com/k3XDM8BQ6E— Tim O'Shea III (@oshea_iii) April 28, 2019
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds, O’Shea spent one year at FCS-level Wagner but redshirted the season. He played his high school ball at in-state powerhouse Southington, where he racked up All-CCC and All-Record-Journal honors after a 49 catch, 609 yard, eight touchdown senior campaign. This is the Huskies seventh transfer addition and second at the wide receiver position, joining Seton Hill transfer Ardell Brown.
