Juco TE flips from UConn to Wyoming
Tight end J.D. Krill (Laguna Niguel, Calif./Saddleback College) committed to the Huskies in December and was set to enroll early at UConn. However, some administrative issues forced him to make a change.
Krill, Tweeting with UConn quarterback pledge Richard Lagow (Plano, Texas/Plano), posted, "There was a problem with my units transferring to UCONN. Unfortunately it didn't work out but I wish them the best of luck."
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound quickly found a new home and has signed with the Wyoming Cowboys. He's their fourth mid-year addition for 2013.
Krill officially visited the Huskies (Dec. 7th) and Texas State (Dec. 14th) prior to making his initial decision. He traveled to Laramie, Wyo. last weekend before selecting the Cowboys. Fresno State, Ole Miss, Portland State, San Diego State and South Florida also recruit him earlier in the process.
