After the recent signing day and the end of transfer departure announcements, UConn football is working to fill out its ranks. It made three key additions recently in long snapper Logan Frederic, WR/RB Keegan Jones, and receiver Skyler Bell.

Let’s learn a little bit more about the three newest Huskies:

Logan Frederic - LS - TCU

Logan Frederic was a three-sport athlete in high school, participating in track and lacrosse, and captain of his football team, making first-team all-conference in 2021 as a member of the Class of 2022.

At the Kohl’s professional camps, Frederic had a standout event, performing well enough to be the 14th-best ranked long-snapper there. He sat behind TCU starter Brent Matiscik in 2023. Per his Twitter, he has four years of eligibility remaining.

Keegan Jones - WR/RB - UCLA

Jones is a former three-star wide receiver who received offers from Michigan, Baylor, and UCLA coming out of the Class of 2018. Jones spent four seasons at UCLA, playing in both the wide receiver and running back positions, and seeing solid playing time in both.

Over his four seasons, he had 34 receptions for 358 yards (10.5 YPC), four receiving touchdowns, as well as 128 carries for 623 yards (4.9 YPC) and five rushing touchdowns. While he has a smaller frame at 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, his speed more than makes up for it.

Keegan was a track runner back in high school at Cleveland Tennessee High and was the Tennessee state champion in the 200-meter dash at 21.10 seconds. He’s demonstrated great straight-line speed but is also able to process the field exceptionally well to find open lanes.

Skyler Bell - WR - Wisconsin

Skyler Bell is a former three-star recruit with ties to Connecticut. The 6-foot, 195-pound receiver from Taft School (CT) committed to Wisconsin out of the Class of 2021. He played in three seasons, accruing 69 receptions for 755 receiving yards (10.9 AVG), with six receiving touchdowns, and also had 13 rushes for 160 yards in 2022.

UConn offered Bell in high school, as did Iowa, Northwestern, Virginia, and Penn State, among others. He was the 124th-ranked wide receiver in the 2021 class and should add some playmaking ability to the UConn offense along with Jones.
