Juco TE to join QB at UConn 

January, 29, 2012
Butler Community College (El Dorado, Kan.) head coach Troy Morrell on Sunday said tight end Neil Shortell has verbally committed to Connecticut.

At 6-foot-3 and 254 pounds, Shortell was a dependable blocking back and a reliable pass-catching option for the junior college power. The sophomore was a first-team, All-Jayhawk Conference selection this season, helping the Grizzlies to an 11-1 record and a No. 2 ranking in the final NJCAA poll.
