Richard Lagow, a 6-foot-6 prospect from Plano, Texas, sent out a tweet on Tuesday afternoon that he is going to explore other opportunities and is headed back home to Texas.
UConn is currently in practice and the university could not independently confirm the news.
Lagow was recruited with Kivon Taylor and Tim Boyle after a signing day drama that brought rare intrigue to signing day.
For most of last year’s recruitment, Lagow was the only quarterback recruit for the Huskies. Then, a week before signing day the Huskies got a commitment from in-state recruit Tim Boyle, a highly-recruited QB who was originally headed to Boston College. Boyle wasn’t a fit at BC anymore in head coach Steve Addazio’s system.
On signing day, the Huskies got a surprise commitment from Kivon Taylor, a 6-foot-5 quarterback out of Atlanta. He was a name that was never a part of the recruiting scene. Lagow didn’t sign on signing day and instead waited over a week before officially signing on for UConn.
Lagow has size and a good arm, but Boyle has impressed in his first weeks of camp. Boyle looks very much like the third-string quarterback and is very much in UConn’s plans for the future.
The Huskies do have several players headed to prep school. Don’t be surprised if another scholarship player comes in similar to Mike Boland last week.
Here is note he sent with the tweet.
