Glades Central halfback Ja’kevious Vickers announced he had committed to Connecticut via Twitter on Sunday morning.

Vickers visited UConn this weekend and committed when the Huskies offered him a scholarship Sunday.

“Once I went up there, those guys didn’t know me at all, and they made me feel like I was at home already,” Vickers said.

“None of us — me or the other running back — had an offer, but this morning he asked what are we about to do, and that’s when I said I’m going to commit to UConn. It’s like they had the offer out for me, but it wasn’t [More]
